    Yup on all of the above. Add Kendall Beckwith, who got a sack and 2 TFL. Justin Evans was good too, second in tackles with 7.

    The pass rush sure looked different, the less stunting thing did seem to make a difference. Great effort all around by the entire defense – so Coach Smith gets some credit too.

      Trevor Sikkema

      Agreed. You could add Beckwith and maybe even Charles Sims in relation to his role/workload, too.

    Superbowl baby, here we come!!

    Yes, those are good picks, but I’m going to say something that nobody else will say. For every pass that Godwin and D-Jax caught, somebody had to throw it – Fitzpatrick threw them! Now there was a lot of ugly in between, but the guy along with some outstanding defense got this team a long overdue win. For that I’m probably the only Buc fan to say it, but thanks Fitz, I raise a lonely toast to you!

    Beck should be on here for sure. Dude was everywhere!

    Patrick Murray deserves a nod… he’s made us forget about how horrific our kicking game has been for 2 years. He was 3 for 3 today. He’s 7 for 8 in field goals and he’s perfect on extra points since joining us.

      Unfortunately LD didn’t get to have another TD added to his list of accomplishments today as well due to the quick whistle

    2. 6.2


      Yep, and he initially made that other kick that was negated by a penalty …glad to have him back!

    Since we often name players as “Impressive” or “Disappointing” for one play; I thought Speedy Reedy did well.
