The Bucs have a major hand in the Pro Football Focus Team of the Week

A well-deserved award for the league’s biggest underdog in Week 1

If only this were the final week of the season, when awards really matter.

But hey, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will take whatever they can get.

Pro Football Focus placed three Bucs’ players on the Team of the Week after their major upset against New Orleans. Not only did Tampa Bay win the game, but they also did so on the road while under stressful circumstances.

It makes complete sense considering the Bucs finished as the number one team in all major offensive categories outside of their rushing attack and redzone scoring.

It’s only Week 1, but it’s definitely what Tampa Bay needed after a tumultuous offseason and the hardest three-game opening stretch in NFL history.

The Bucs will face off against an even tougher test this Sunday against the Eagles.
