The Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the Denver Broncos in Week 4 on Sunday afternoon. Here are all the highlights, a recap of the game, and the final score.
The Denver Broncos crushed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 27-7 in a blowout victory Sunday in Week 4. Denver improves to 4-0 on the year, while the Buccaneers drop to 1-3.
Though it was a low-scoring affair, this was one of the most lopsided games on the Week 4 slate. Tampa Bay was only able to get into the end zone once on a Jameis Winston run. He had a rough day at quarterback for Tampa Bay. Winston needs help.
It’s been just four weeks, but the Broncos look like the favorite to repeat as AFC Champions. Maybe they do have what it takes to repeat as Super Bowl Champions?
The Broncos defense looks as strong as ever under defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. Head coach Gary Kubiak is officially a quarterback whisperer.
When starter Trevor Siemian went down with a shoulder injury in the first half, rookie Paxton Lynch came in and played inspire football. Though he went against a bad Buccaneers defense, maybe Kubiak has to consider starting Lynch in the next few games?
Not only do the Broncos have a championship caliber defense, but they seem to have two capable starting quarterbacks. Tamp Bay on the other hand has lost three straight and people have to start questioning Dirk Koetter’s football team. Tampa Bay looks lost.
1. Aqib Talib: The star cornerback for the Broncos has a fantastic ballhawk on Sunday. He picked off Winston twice for 40 return yards, had three solo tackles, and two pass breakups.
2. Derek Wolfe: Wolfe was a big bad one on Sunday. He devoured Winston with 2.5 quarterback sacks, two tackles for a loss of yardage, five quarterback hits, and six tackles, five of which were solo.
3. Paxton Lynch: Lynch had to relieve an injured Siemian and played well in his NFL debut. He completed 14 of 24 passes for 170 yards and one touchdown.
