Re: Injuries And Game Recap Please
The Bucs started the next series with a hold, but managed to put together their longest drive (from their 27 all the way to the Texans 5 where they turned the ball over on down.)
There was a 14 yd pass to the TE Winslow (a variation of the 2-man route where Winslow was the crosser.)
JJ Watt then stuffed the RB Blount for a 2yd loss, Quin getting the assist.
On 3rd and 8, the RB beat Barwin out of the backfield for a 16yd gain, tackled by Nolan.
Freeman then got free from Watt's grasp and Barwin's tackle attempt for 12 and another first down (Quin & Demeco made the tackle).
The receiver then beat JJo on a timing route down the side line for 20.
On first down, Antonio and Barwin pressured Freeman into an incompletion to the RB Blount out of the backfield.
On 2nd down, KJ timed the slant perfectly to put a hit on the receiver Briscoe just as the ball arrived, jarring tha ball loose.
On third and ten, Freeman completed an 8yd pass to the slot receiver on a quick-out; McCain played off-man, willing to give up any pass short of the first down.
On 4th and 2, the Bucs elected to go for it with a lob pass into the right corner to the receiver Briscoe.
KJ played his technique well, putting his hands between the receivers' arm to poke the ball loose.
There's no PI that can be called there as the receiver was fading away and Jackson never touched him before the ball arrived.
There were two referees within 7 yards of the play.
Shame on any Texans fan who cries foul for a PI to favor the Bucs there.
