Bucs Week 15 Notable Numbers

Here are a few stats and numbers to take note of ahead of the Bucs' last road trip of the year to take on the Lions in Detroit.


24 – The number of first downs the Bucs recorded against the Colts at home last weekend. It's a franchise record and tied for the second-most in a game by any team this season.

29.1 – The number of points the Bucs are averaging per game. It's the third-highest total in the league.

75.5 – The number of rushing yards the Bucs are allowing on average per game. They sit back atop the league for best rushing defense as a result.

75 – The number of passes defensed the Bucs have recorded. It's the most in the NFL.

15.0 – After a correction this week, a full sack was credited to outside linebacker Shaq Barrett, giving him 15.0 on the year. He's now just one sack shy of tying Warren Sapp's single-season franchise record.

90 – The number of quarterback hits the Bucs' defense has recorded, good for the third-highest total of any team.

81 – The number of catches wide receiver Chris Godwin has so far this season, meaning he needs just 19 more in the next three games to reach 100. With wide receiver Mike Evans done for the year, that is seeming more and more likely.

276.5 – The number of passing yards the Lions are giving up on average per game. It ranks them as the third-worst passing defense in the league.

298.2 – The number of passing yards the Bucs are averaging per game this season, good for the second-most in the NFL.

10 – The number of receiving touchdowns Lions' receiver Kenny Golladay has. It's the most of any player in the league.
