The Tampa Bay Buccaneers dropped to 1-3 on the season after falling, XX-XX, to the Denver Broncos on Sunday afternoon in Tampa.

The Bucs struggled offensively throughout the day, particular running the ball. Tampa Bay lost Doug Martin to a hamstring injury in Week 2, with him missing the majority of that game, along with the past two. As a unit, the Bucs haven't rushed for more than 85 yards without him.

Jameis Winston rushed for a touchdown, but didn't find the end zone through the air. He finished the day completing 17 of 35 passes for 179 yards and two interceptions. His two top targets, Mike Evans and Cameron Brate, each had four receptions.

Tampa Bay turned the ball over three times, giving Denver the ball already in field goal range twice. The Broncos would score 17 of their 27 points off of turnovers. The Bucs didn't take the ball away, marking the third time in four games they have finished without a turnover.

Despite Gerald McCoy and Noah Spence leaving the game with injuries, the Bucs picked up three sacks. The Broncos began the game with Trevor Siemian at quarterback, but rookie Paxton Lynch played the majority of the game after Siemian left the game with an injury.

Clinton McDonald led the Buccaneers in tackles with eight, six of which were solo. McDonald also has 1.5 sacks and two quarterback hits. Bradley McDougald and Vernon Hargreaves each recorded seven tackles while Kwon Alexander had six.

The Buccaneers will travel to Carolina for their Week 5 matchup against the Panthers next Monday night.
