Just Grillin sponsors PewterReport.com’s Pewter Player of the Week, which is given to Tampa Bay’s MVP as selected by the PewterReport.com staff every week following the most recent game.
The Buccaneers were given a harsh reality check in Arizona last Sunday, as their aggressive offensive approach backfired in the first half – three turnovers in the passing game – and a turned a 24-point deficit into quick sand by the second. While the offensive continued to give the ball away, the defense couldn’t seem to find it’s footing, giving up numerous explosive plays that led to the rout in the desert.
One promising drive in the 40-7 loss, however, took place at the start of the third quarter.
Jameis Winston led Tampa Bay on an 11-play, 75-yard drive, capped off by a 19-yard touchdown pass to Mike Evans in the corner of the end zone. The spark of momentum didn’t last, and Winston would throw two more interceptions on a forgettable afternoon, but the lone touchdown highlighted an impressive effort by Evans.
The former No. 7 overall pick finished the day with six catches for 70 yards and a score. Though his output didn’t match his opportunities – targeted 17 times – it’s tough sledding against an elite secondary, especially when you’re clearly the primary receiver.
For his performance Sunday, Evans is this week’s Just Grillin Pewter Player of the Week, and will receive a $50 gift certificate to Just Grillin in Corrollwood.
