“I think it has a lot to do with us growing up,” Rivera said, via ESPN. “It’s the growth of our quarterback and our offensive unit and the growth of our defensive unit as well.”
“These guys understand what it takes now,” Rivera added, “and they’re still learning and growing and getting better and better.”
For the Bucs, they’ll rely heavily on rookie quarterback Mike Glennon.
“He’s playing at a higher level than you would expect of a rookie,” Bucs head coach Greg Schiano said.
