Teammates of the Week: Buccaneers offensive line

New, comment

The Buccaneers' offensive line performed admirably in Seattle.

The teammates of the week for week 10 are the Tampa Bay Buccaners' offensive linemen, a unit that has had issues all season long but produced a great game in a near-win against the Seattle Seahawks.

They led the way for the Bucs' 205 yards on the ground, including 158 yards out of sixth-round rookie running back Mike James on 28 attempts. The line still struggled a little in pass protection, but that wasn't a big issue and it didn't prevent Mike Glennon from being successful for most of the game.

The offensive line has had issues this year. Donald Penn and Demar Dotson have played well, as has Jeremy Zuttah, but Davin Joseph has struggled and the Bucs have failed to find a solid starter at left guard. Carl Nicks' absence has been a real problem, especially in the run game, but Jamon Meredith did a decent job filling in for him against Seattle.

If the Bucs can get the offensive line to play like that for the rest of this season, they might actually win a few games -- and we may see some more 150-yard rushing games.
