To make matters worse, Jameis Winston had to leave the game with a shoulder injury (it’s not clear how serious it is, but it’s keeping him out of this game), so that means Ryan Fitzpatrick is in. And he does Ryan Fitzpatrick things, of course.
I can kind of see what he was going for there, but you know, maybe make a normal throw that is also accurate? And get on the same page as your tight end? No?
The Bucs actually went for it on fourth down here (which was probably the right decision), but failed. No points for them in the entire first half.
The Bucs are basically doomed in this game if Fitzpatrick is going to play the rest of the way. Now they just have to hope that they’re not doomed in the rest of this season, which is the likely outcome of Winston’s injury is going to keep him out for a significant amount of time.
