The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have really committed to running the ball, and it shows in the snapcounts. Third receiver Skye Dawson managed just 26 snaps against the Miami Dolphins, with tight ends Tom Crabtree and Tim Wright both getting on the field over 50% of the time. Add in Erik Lorig's 37 snaps and even Gabe Carimi's 8 snaps and it's clear that the Bucs tried to line up and pound the football. With great success, of course: the team's running backs managed 143 rushing yards on 33 carries. The Bucs ran the ball on exactly 50% of the plays.
Da'Quan Bowers actually managed to make an impact despite his eternally low snap count, notching half a sack officially but affecting the passer on at least one more play. Gerald McCoy actually recorded 100% of the snaps, which is the first time I recall him (or any Buccaneers defensive lineman) doing that. It is at least the first time he did that this season.
Defensive back depth is starting to become an issue for the Bucs. With Danny Gorrer sidelined for unclear reasons, Michael Adams was the team's main nickel back and was roasted all game long. Leonard Johnson was called back to play a few snaps, while Keith Tandy got on the field for one third of the plays as well. None of those three players should be on the field much, but the Bucs have few other options.
