The route for the Treasure Chests 5K Run/Walk & Corporate Challenge winds around Raymond James Stadium, and each entry into the race comes complete with admission to Sunday’s game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars.
■ The Bucs are 7-29 the last three years; the Jaguars are 8-28.
If and when Kuechly returns, the Panthers will be facing one of those problems teams want to have.
■ The Bucs are 1-3 for the second year in a row. The Jaguars have won a game (against the other Florida team, Miami Dolphins) but that was at home. We’re 1-3 so that’s how we’re feeling.
Gary Shelton is one of the most recognized and honored sportswriters in the history of the state.
He said he had tight end Marcedes Lewis open on a stick route and bypassed him and went to wide receiver Allen Hurns and it was incomplete. “This is the NFL”. Football is a sport where game situations matter. He has 24 touchdowns over the past two seasons. “But we held him out another day”. Winston has been sacked nine times.
Fans who attended that late-season game against the Bills saw Bobby Rainey run for 127 yards, including an early 80-yard touchdown dash that set a franchise record for the longest run from scrimmage. However, even though the Jags aren’t great neither are the Bucs.
Florida Hospital, the Exclusive Hospital of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, will participate for the second consecutive year in the team’s Treasure Chests 5K Run/Walk benefitting breast cancer research and patient services.
Brindza, who was cut on Monday, had missed a total of seven kicks since September 27. In addition to making 116 of 136 field goals, he’s converted all 149 of his extra points.
The veteran kicker acknowledged Wednesday that the biggest reason he may have been available at all is he hasn’t been as consistent on kickoffs as he’s been on field goals during his career.
Two weeks ago, while the line did protect quarterback Jameis Winston well, the team had a hard time running the ball against Houston, rushing for a season-low 57 yards.
Campbell is installing a more competitive environment – beginning in practice. They can burn the Jaguars corners, especially if Colvin isn’t at full speed with his shoulder injury. The team lost defensive end Dante Fowler, the third overall pick in the draft, in the opening hour of rookie camp in May and have played the first four games without their top free agent acquisition, Thomas, and their best defensive lineman, Marks.
QB Blake Bortles has a deep group of receivers to utilize as deep threats. “We’ll see how that plays out this week”. I think Jameis is going to have a couple of “wow” games in his rookie season and this might be one of them. We’re giving ourselves opportunities. “It is coming. We’ve got to finish a few games, but his starts have been impressive through four games”. The week before, the Jaguars were flattened 51-17 by the New England Patriots. Did we throw too many interceptions in this game? Yes.
