San Francisco 49ers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers – FOX, 1:00 PM
Mullens stepping into the spotlight
In his limited action, quarterback Nick Mullens has done a great job of delivering accurate passes.
Breida breaking them off with the best of them
Through 11 weeks, running back Matt Breida has produced 20 runs of five or more yards, the eighth-most among all running backs in the league.
Buckner: Dominating the interior
DeForest Buckner has been a force from the interior this season. His 36 total pressures rank sixth among all players at the position.
Warner: The good and the bad
Fred Warner has shown that he's capable of making plays against the run, but he needs to sure up his tackling.
Winston's Making Quicker Decisions
Over the past two seasons, Jameis Winston has gotten rid of the ball much faster. Winston's currently averaging 2.52 seconds to throw this year, 13th among quarterbacks.
When the Buccaneers brought in Jason Pierre-Paul and Vinny Curry this offseason, they acquired a duo that totaled over 100 total quarterback pressures in 2017. 11 weeks through the 2018 season, that number is currently 46.
Struggles in the slot
No matter who the Buccaneers have had defending the slot, it has been an area they've struggled with.
