The up-and-down Buccaneers, who now sit at 2-3 on the year, are in London this Sunday for a divisional matchup against the 3-2 Panthers. Tampa Bay hasn’t lost back-to-back games this season, nor has it won back-to-back games.
The Bucs will be looking to get to 3-3 heading into the bye week, but to do so, they will have to pick up a victory in London for the first time ever and sweep the season series with the Panthers for the first time since 2016.
On the individual side of things, there are some Buccaneer players who have a chance to improve their career numbers and move their names up in the franchise’s record book.
Let’s see where things stand heading into Week 6 of the 2019 season.
Career Pass Attempts
Jameis Winston comes into Sunday’s game with 2,088 pass attempts in his career, placing him second on the franchise’s all-time list. He needs 73 more to pass Vinny Testaverde (2,160) for first.
Career Rushing Touchdowns
Peyton Barber has 12 career rushing touchdowns, ranking him 13th in franchise history. With one more, he ties LeGarrette Blount and Doug Williams (13) for 11th-most.
Winston has nine career rushing touchdowns, which is good for 15th. He needs one more to tie Michael Pittman (10) for 14th. To own the franchise record for rushing scores by a quarterback, he needs five more. Williams holds the record (13).
Mike Evans was held to zero catches last week in New Orleans, which means he’s still at 413 receptions for his career. He ranks second and needs 18 more to take the top spot from James Wilder (430).
Career Receiving Touchdowns
With 24 career touchdown catches, Cameron Brate remains tied with Dave Moore for seventh all-time. One more ties him with Mike Williams (25) for sixth.
Chris Godwin caught two more touchdowns last week, bringing his career total to 14. The second score tied him with Morris Owens and Keenan McCardell for 14th in team history. He needs two more to tie Reidel Anthony (16) for 13th.
O.J. Howard is stuck at 11 career touchdown receptions, tying him for 20th. One more ties him with Kellen Winslow Jr. (12) for 19th.
Career Solo Tackles
Lavonte David now has 662 career solo tackles, meaning he needs just 19 more to pass Hardy Nickerson (680) for third in team history.
David is still at 21.5 sacks in his career, so he needs one more to pass John Cannon (22) for 14th in franchise history. Two more would push him past Santana Dotson and Lee Roy Selmon (23)* for 12th.
*Note: Sacks did not become an official statistic until 1982.
Shaquil Barrett has nine sacks through five games this season, putting him on pace to break the franchise’s single-season record. He needs eight more in the next 11 games to break the record set by Warren Sapp (16.5) in 2000.
Career Passes Defended
David has 40 passes defended in his career, leaving him one away from tying Brent Grimes (41) for seventh and two away from tying John Lynch (42) for sixth.
*Note: Passes defended did not become an official statistic until 1999.
With 11 interceptions in his career, David is tied for 15th in franchise history. He needs one more to tie Jeris White, Mark Robinson and Dwight Smith (12) for 12th.
Career Forced Fumbles
David’s 18 forced fumbles have him third in team history. He needs two more to pass Simeon Rice (19) for second.
