TJ's 3 Takeaways from TB-MIN

One of the bright spots, if not the brightest spot so far this season has been the consistent dominant tackling of LaVonte David. Once again Sunday, he was flying to the football making one stop after another on his way to a 14 tackle day. Buc fans should not take this for granted. It is not something that you just show up on Sunday and do. LaVonte is obviously putting in the time in the film study, on the practice field and in his preparation. And, the results speak for themselves.

The development of Mike Evans as a deep threat continues
One of the aspects to his past catching game that led the Bucs to Mike Evans was his ability to go down the field and out-fight smaller defenders. The rookie averaged almost 20 yards per catch Sunday. As the season continues, his ability to get big chunks of yardage down the field one-on-one against DB's will be an asset.

Battling in the 4th quarter
Even though the tally of wins and losses shows 6 in the wrong column, Sunday was another encouraging sign. With the ten-point fourth quarter comeback, the Bucs once again put themselves in position to win. It was the fourth time in the seven games, including the Pittsburgh win, where Tampa Bay had or took the lead by how they were playing late. Now, they must improve in finishing those games.
