Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman says he "hasn't played well enough to win" during the past two games, in which he racked up a combined eight interceptions.
After some self-evaluation, Freeman said he and the offense need to get back to basics and avoid trying to do too much.
"Point blank, we just have to run the offense," Freeman said. "That's what we've been doing. And I hate to say 'Slow it down,' but that's kind of what we need to do. If you look back to when we had that stretch where we were an extremely explosive offense, the stuff that we were doing wasn't anything out of the ordinary."
He said the team tried to outdo itself at times following a midseason 5-1 stretch in which the Bucs averaged 33 points per game and Freeman had just three interceptions.
"Everybody has been pushing; everybody wants to go out and do well," Freeman said. "And what allows you to do well is consistently running your stuff.''
