Janoris Jenkins pick six gives Rams 7-3 lead

The Buccaneers appeared to be doing fine. They were struggling in the secondary, but an endzone interception took care of the first (and only) Rams drive. And yet, the Bucs are down 7-0 after a Janoris Jenkins pick six.

So what happened on that play? It wasn't all that complicated: Freeman had pressure at his feet, threw the ball before Mike Williams made his cut -- and then Williams fell down, giving Jenkins an easy pick-six. Oops.

Meanwhile, the Bucs offense is really struggling with the the Rams defensive line, which is blowing up running plays and getting consistent pressure. The Bucs have been forced to go with quick passing plays and failed runs because of that.
