When Bucs DT Gerald McCoy busted through the Pittsburgh offensive line to bring down Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger for a first-quarter sack, he also crept up the team’s all-time sack list for players at his position.
McCoy now has 20.5 career sacks, moving him a half-sack ahead of Anthony “Booger” McFarland for fourth-place on the list. The fifth-year pro now trails Santana Dotson (23), Brad Culpepper (33) and Hall of Famer Warren Sapp (77).
Since 2012, McCoy is tied as the third-most prolific sacker from the defensive tackle position in the NFL. His 16.5 sacks tie him with Buffalo’s Kyle Williams and place him behind Tennessee’s Jurrell Casey (17.5) and Cincinnati’s Geno Atkins (18.5). McCoy was selected No. 3 overall in the 2010 NFL draft and has recorded two more sacks over that timeframe than the player taken one slot ahead of him, Detroit’s Ndamukong Suh.
OTHER NOTABLE STATS FOLLOWING SUNDAY’S GAME IN PITTSBURGH:
The Bucs-Eagles game in 2006 was in Tampa, not in Pa. That was the Matt Bryant 62 yd FG game.
Good call. Was their 2003 17-0 win in Philly. Correction made.
We went the entire 2013 without passing for 300 yards in a game? That’s got to be some kind of NFL record, at least over the last 20 years or so.
600th game, not win. Please be clear in writing, so all the other statements will be accepted as truths too go bucs and pewter report!
Put a bullet in that bullet point. Typo fixed. Thanks, howler.
