Buccaneers record watch: Week 16

Which players can continue making their mark on the franchise’s history this Saturday against the Texans?

The Buccaneers have won five of their last six games, including four straight. After a blowout win in Detroit last week, Tampa Bay now returns home for the final two weeks of the regular season. The penultimate game of 2019 is a rare Saturday matchup, with the Houston Texans coming to town looking to strengthen their hold on the AFC South.

The Bucs may not have playoffs on the line these days, but they have a lot to play for. The team has been playing with confidence during the second half of this season and is seemingly learning how to win. That could mean good things heading into 2020. Plus, a record of .500 or better for the season is still in play and despite the injuries piling up, there is a lot of belief in that locker room.

There are also some individual accomplishments up for grabs. There are quite a few guys positioning themselves in the franchise’s record book. Let’s see where things stand heading into Saturday’s game.

Single-Season Passing Touchdowns

With four passing touchdowns last week, Jameis Winston set a new single-season franchise record. He broke his own record of 28, which he set back in 2016.

Single-Season Receptions

Chris Godwin has been ruled out for this week’s game and likely won’t play next week, so he’ll finish the season with 86 receptions. That ties him with Mark Carrier (86 in 1989) and Mike Evans (86 in 2018) for third-most in a single season.

Single-Season Receiving Yards

If he’s done for the year, Chris Godwin will finish with 1,333 receiving yards. That’s good for fourth-most in a single season.

Single-Season Receiving Touchdowns

Chris Godwin’s nine receiving touchdowns tie him for fifth-most in a single season with Kevin House (1981), Bruce Hill (1988), Mark Carrier (1989) and Mike Williams (2012).

Career Receiving Touchdowns

Cameron Brate has 26 receiving touchdowns in his career, leaving him one away from tying Mark Carrier (27) for fifth-most in franchise history.

Career Rushing Touchdowns

With 15 career rushing touchdowns, Peyton Barber is tied with Lars Tate and Earnest Graham for ninth-most in team history. One more ties him with Ricky Bell (16).

Career Solo Tackles

Lavonte David is up to 709 tackles in his accomplished career. He is 320 away from passing Ronde Barber (1,028) for second in Bucs history.

Single-Season Sacks*

With a sack against the Lions last week, Shaquil Barrett tied Warren Sapp’s single-season franchise record of 16.5 sacks. He has two weeks to get the record all to himself.

*Sacks did not become an official stat until 1982.

Career Sacks*

Lavonte David has 22.5 sacks in his career, which places him 14th all-time. He needs one more to pass Santana Dotson and Lee Roy Selmon (23) for 12th and two more to take 10th from Marcus Jones and Stylez G. White (24).

*Sacks did not become an official stat until 1982.

Career Passes Defended*

With a pass defended in the win over Detroit, Lavonte David now has 44 in his career. That leaves him 11 away from passing Aqib Talib (54) for fifth-most in team history.

*Passes defended did not become an official stat until 1999.

Career Interceptions

Lavonte David’s 11 interceptions are tied for 15th-most in Bucs history. He is one away from tying Dwight Smith, Mark Robinson and Jeris White (12) for 12th.

Single-Season Forced Fumbles

With six forced fumbles this season, Shaquil Barrett is one away from tying the franchise record of seven, which is currently held by Broderick Thomas (done in 1991) and Stylez G. White (done in 2007).

Career Forced Fumbles

Lavonte David picked up his 20th career forced fumble last week, giving him sole possession of second on the franchise’s all-time list.

Career Games Played

With his 129th career game this Saturday, Demar Dotson will pull one closer to Brian Kelly (130), who is 11th in franchise history for games played.

Saturday will be Lavonte David’s 120th game as a Buc, leaving him one away from tying Chidi Ahanotu, Lee Roy Selmon and Jimmie Giles (121) for 16th-most in team history.
