VIDEO: Vincent Jackson’s one-handed grab makes top 100 plays of 2013 list

The 2013 NFL season was a forgettable one for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After losing their first eight games the team’s playoff hopes were effectively dead and there wasn’t much to get excited about.

Tampa Bay only had 167 passing yards, completing only half of their attempts and managing a miniscule 5.1 yards per attempt. But the Jaguars’ defense did an even better job than that.

Mike James returns to a crowded Bucs RB field, but he's flexible

Mike James said he never played quarterback, even while growing up in Haines City.
