The Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost to the New Orleans Saints on| Sunday, and if we can believe Stephen White, it was all their fault. His Storify analysis is below the main takeaways here.
- Mike Evans was open deep, a lot, and the Bucs didn't target him once. Whether that's because of play design or Winston going elsewhere, it's inexcusable -- especially given the Saints' complete inability to actually cover deep routes, ever.
- The defense was back to having just one player screwing up on every other play, especially third downs, and White pointed to safety Bradley McDougald as a major culprit. Sterling Moore and Jude Adjei-Barimah actually played well.
- No real pass rush out of the defensive ends, and Gerald McCoy couldn't do what he normally does given his broken hand.
- Bruce Carter was an upgrade in pass coverage over Kwon Alexander, who's struggled to drop deep all season long. Too bad both of them are out tonight.
