The 1-2 Buccaneers head west to Los Angeles this Sunday for a Week 4 matchup against the 3-0 Rams. Tampa Bay, which won’t return to Raymond James Stadium until Nov. 10, faces an uphill battle to get back to .500.
Squaring off with the defending NFC champions on the road just one week after a brutal home loss, the Bucs are looking to steal another big road win. On the individual side of things, there are some players who can continue to climb in the franchise’s record book. Let’s see where things stand heading into Week 4.
Career Pass Attempts
Jameis Winston heads into Sunday’s game with 2,020 career pass attempts, ranking him third in franchise history. He needs 19 more to pass Trent Dilfer (2,038).
Career Rushing Touchdowns
Peyton Barber has 10 rushing touchdowns in his career, tying him for 13th in team history. He needs four more to pass Doug Williams and LeGarrette Blount (13) for 11th.
Jameis Winston has nine in his career, which means he’s two away from passing Barber for 13th. He’s also five away from breaking Williams’ franchise record for rushing scores by a quarterback.
Mike Evans has caught 409 passes in his career, leaving him 22 away from breaking the record currently held by James Wilder (430).
