Tampa Bay Buccaneers avoid NFL’s biggest turkeys, bitter rivals do not

Lovie Smith talks about the progression of his defense

The Buccaneers’ defense was once viewed as a unit that any quarterback they faced was a must start in all fantasy formats. Well that is no longer the case.  Injuries across the defensive line have held back the defense’s potential for most of the season. But the team is getting healthier and they have been improving as of late. “We’ve been playing pretty good defense...

Tweet Just how bad has the NFC South been this season? So bad that at 2-9, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are just 2 games out of first place.
