Chris Godwin and Jameis Winston starred in this one. Both Bucs players earned extremely high marks on multiple occasions, connecting 12 times for 172 yards and two touchdowns in the team’s big win on the road.
Ronald Jones was outstanding against the Rams’ defensive front. He may have averaged just 3.7 yards per carry, but he forced multiple missed tackles and gained a ton of yards after contact.
Tampa Bay’s new edge defender Shaquil Barrett is special. He’s well on his way to a career year and very well could find himself in the Defensive Player of the Year conversation if he keeps at his current pace. He was unblockable coming off the edge and recorded a late strip-sack that sealed the game for Tampa Bay on Sunday.
Rookie safety Mike Edwards was torched against Los Angeles, as he struggled significantly in coverage and failed to add much in run defense.
This was one of Jared Goff‘s worst games of the season. He had multiple turnover-worthy plays and really struggled to push the ball downfield.
Aaron Donald was limited against Tampa Bay’s offensive line. He rarely created pressure on passing downs and was generally kept quiet in the run game, at least more so than what we’ve come to expect from Donald.
Taylor Rapp gave up a handful of plays in coverage before going down with injury.
