Buccaneers record watch: Week 9

New, comments

Some franchise history was made last week. Could some more be on its way this Sunday against the Seahawks?

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Los Angeles Rams Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

The Buccaneers, losers of three straight, need to turn things around. Fast. They wrap up their ridiculously long stretch away from Raymond James Stadium this Sunday when they ride into CenturyLink Field for a matchup with the Seattle Seahawks.

A fourth straight loss would drop Tampa Bay to 2-6 at the halfway point in the season, which is nowhere near where fans expected Bruce Arians to have his team. Even a win gets them to just 3-5 in the first half of the season. Either way, the overall record is a disappointment.

But let’s move on to some records that aren’t disappointing. While the team may not be having much success as a group, there are a few Bucs who have staked their claim to fame in the franchise’s record book. Last week, some history was made. This week, there could be more.

Let’s see where things stand heading into Week 9 of the 2019 season.

Career Pass Attempts

Last week, Jameis Winston became the franchise’s all-time leader in pass attempts. He’s up to 2,185 in his career. He now owns the franchise records for pass attempts, completions, passing yards and passing touchdowns.

Career Rushing Touchdowns

With 12 rushing touchdowns in his career, Peyton Barber has the 13th-most in team history. With one more, he ties LeGarrette Blount and Doug Williams (13) for 11th.

Jameis Winston has nine rushing touchdowns in his career, putting him at 15th overall. He needs five more to pass Williams for the most by a quarterback.

Career Receptions

During his massive performance last week, Mike Evans passed James Wilder for the most receptions in Bucs history. He’s up to 433 for his career now, giving him the franchise records in catches, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns.

Career Receiving Touchdowns

Speaking of career receiving touchdowns, Cameron Brate is just outside the top five. With 25, he is tied for sixth-most with Mike Williams. He needs two more to tie Mark Carrier (27) for fifth.

Chris Godwin has 14 touchdown receptions in his young career, tying him for 14th-most. He needs two more to tie Reidel Anthony for 13th.

O.J. Howard is tied for 20th with 11 touchdown catches. He needs one more to tie Kellen Winslow (12) for 19th.

Career Touchdowns

With two touchdowns last week, Mike Evans passed James Wilder for second-most touchdowns in Bucs history. He now has 47, but he has a ways to go to claim the top spot, which is currently held by Mike Alstott (71).

Career Solo Tackles

Lavonte David has been slowly climbing toward the No. 3 spot for career solo tackles, and this could be the week he finally gets there. He has 673 right now, which is good for fourth. He needs eight more to pass Hardy Nickerson (680) for third.

Career Sacks*

With 21.5, Lavonte David ranks 15th in career sacks. He needs one more to pass John Cannon (22) for 14th and two more to pass Santana Dotson and Lee Roy Selmon (23) for 12th.

*Sacks did not become an official stat until 1982

Single-Season Sacks*

Last week, Shaquil Barrett hit double-digit sacks. In his seventh game of the season. With 10, he needs seven more to break Warren Sapp’s single-season record of 16.5, which he set back in 2000.

*Sacks did not become an official stat until 1982

Career Passes Defended*

Lavonte David recorded a pass defended in last week’s loss to the Titans, which gave him 41 for his career. That ties him with Brent Grimes for seventh-most in Bucs history, and one more will tie him with John Lynch (42) for sixth.

*Passes defended did not become an official stat until 1999

Career Interceptions

Lavonte David has 11 career interceptions, tying him with Jermaine Phillips and Jeremiah Castille for 15th in franchise history. With his 12th, David will tie Jeris White, Mark Robinson and Dwight Smith for 12th all-time.

Career Forced Fumbles

With 18 forced fumbles in his career, Lavonte David ranks third in franchise history. He needs one more to tie Simeon Rice (19) for second and seven more to take the top spot from Derrick Brooks (24).

Career Games Played

If Demar Dotson is able to play in Sunday’s game, it will be his 122nd as a Buccaneer, which would tie him with John Cannon for 14th in franchise history.

Sunday will be Lavonte David’s 113th game with Tampa Bay, which ties him with Mark Cotney and James Wilder for 22nd-most in team history.
