Which of Tampa Bay’s players can move up in the franchise’s record book during Sunday’s game against Cleveland?

NFL: Detroit Lions at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

The Buccaneers are finally back home at Raymond James Stadium on Sunday, playing host to the Cleveland Browns. In last week’s loss in Atlanta, both Jameis Winston and Mike Evans shattered some franchise records. When Tampa Bay takes the field on Sunday, which players have a chance to make history, or at least inch closer to it?

Career Receiving Yards

With 58 yards in last week’s game, Mike Evans officially holds the franchise record for career receiving yards with 5,063. He’ll look to add to that this week.

Career Receptions

Evans is up to 342 receptions for his career, which has him 89 away from the top spot in franchise history. James Wilder (430) holds the record right now.

Career Passing Yards

Jameis Winston has 12,176 passing yards in his career. He needs 473 more to pass Doug Williams (12,648) for fourth all-time.

Career Passing Touchdowns

Winston’s four touchdown passes last Sunday pushed him up to third in franchise history, passing Trent Dilfer (70) and Doug Williams (73). At 74, he needs three to tie Vinny Testaverde (77) for second and four to take sole possession of second.

Career Completions

Winston has 985 completions, which means he needs 56 more to pass Brad Johnson (1,040) for fourth-most in franchise history.

Career Passing Attempts

With 1,605 passing attempts, Winston is sixth in franchise history. He needs 79 more to pass Brad Johnson (1,683) for fifth.

Career Rushing Touchdowns

The Bucs are still without a rushing touchdown by a running back this season, so things stand as they have all year. Winston can take sole possession of 14th with one more rushing score, which would bring him to nine for his career.

Peyton Barber is still tied for 25th with four career rushing touchdowns. One more would pull him into a six-way tie for 20th and two more would bring him into a five-way tie for 16th.

Jacquizz Rodgers is tied for 29th all-time with three. He can pull into that 25th-place tie with one more rushing touchdown on Sunday, while two would tie him for 20th.


Lavonte David has 580 tackles as a Buc, which places him fourth in franchise history. He needs 101 more to pass Hardy Nickerson (680) for third.

Kwon Alexander needs two tackles on Sunday to pass Donnie Abraham (266) for 14th all-time.


David is in a first-place tie with one career safety. His next one would give him the Buccaneer record.


David is still tied for 17th in interceptions with 10. One more would tie him with Jermaine Phillips and Jeremiah Castille for 15th.

Passes Defended

David and Brent Grimes are tied for fifth in team history with 35 passes defended. Aqib Talib (52) occupies the fourth spot.

Fumble Recoveries

David and Ronde Barber still share the franchise record for fumble recoveries (12). One more would make David Tampa Bay’s all-time leader.

Forced Fumbles

David is tied for third with 17 forced fumbles. He is three away from passing Simeon Rice (19) for second.

Games Played

Demar Dotson is set to take sole possession of 29th all-time with his 106th game played. He will pass Jeff Gooch and Ricky Reynolds.

Lavonte David will be playing in his 97th game as a Buccaneer, which ties him with Dave Reavis for 43rd-most in team history.
