The Cleveland Browns had every single opportunity to beat the Buccaneers Authentic Jason Pierre-Paul Jersey , but Tampa Bay had every opportunity to beat the Browns.At the end of the day, it was a 59-yard field goal that was squeezed in by the slimmest of margins that decided the game. The Bucs won.But did Tampa Bay really win this game?Sure, they ended up with more points than the other team. On the other side, they also guided that team along like a puppy dog en route to a near-loss. Protection issues, turnovers, bad decisions by Jameis Winston, missed kicks - all of it is the same story that we’ve seen over and over with this regime. Only this time, they somehow won the game. Four turnovers. Two missed kicks. Four sacks allowed. The Browns out-produced the Bucs 170-77 and outscored them 14-0 in the fourth quarter. Winston was the team’s leading rusher with 55 yards. Those numbers usually lose games.On the flip side, Tampa Bay was a perfect 3/3 in the red zone, including a 2/2 mark in goal-to-go situations. They also converted their only fourth down attempt and had 34 first downs. And don’t forget the major goal line stop in the third quarter. All of that goes away, however, when the same mistake are continuously made as in past games. In the Bucs three losses Womens Ali Marpet Jersey , they made the same exact mistakes they made today. The only difference this time was that they were playing the Browns.Winston was erratic with his throws and decision-making. The biggest defense of his questionable career - the fact that he is usually forced to play from behind - was shattered today as he aided in the Browns’ comeback.What brings this all full circle was how Tampa Bay was out-coached in the second half. Their two-touchdown lead quickly dissipated while Baker Mayfield, Jarvis Landry, and Nick Chubb marched up and down the field, outscoring the Bucs 21-7 to force overtime. The highlight of it all was when the Bucs had the ball at the Cleveland 25 with :45 seconds left and two timeouts. Instead of going for the end zone, Dirk Koetter decided to settle for a 40-yard field goal attempt with a kicker that routinely misses extra points instead of at least trying to score a touchdown. Of course, he missed. What’s the definition of insanity, again?It doesn’t matter if Chandler Catanzaro made the game-winning kick. That was a move of desperation on Tampa Bay’s part. They had to win this game and that was the only shot they had left. So again, I ask the question - did the Bucs really win today?It’ll be a “W” in the record book, but it feels more like a loss. Now, it’s on to Cincinnati, but the Bucs don’t have Bill Belichick. The Buccaneers are finally back home at Raymond James Stadium on Sunday, playing host to the Cleveland Browns. In last week’s loss in Atlanta , both Jameis Winston and Mike Evans shattered some franchise records. When Tampa Bay takes the field on Sunday, which players have a chance to make history, or at least inch closer to it?Career Receiving YardsWith 58 yards in last week’s game, Mike Evans officially holds the franchise record for career receiving yards with 5,063. He’ll look to add to that this week.Career ReceptionsEvans is up to 342 receptions for his career, which has him 89 away from the top spot in franchise history. James Wilder (430) holds the record right now. Career Passing YardsJameis Winston has 12,176 passing yards in his career. He needs 473 more to pass Doug Williams (12,648) for fourth all-time.Career Passing TouchdownsWinston’s four touchdown passes last Sunday pushed him up to third in franchise history, passing Trent Dilfer (70) and Doug Williams (73). At 74, he needs three to tie Vinny Testaverde (77) for second and four to take sole possession of second.Career CompletionsWinston has 985 completions, which means he needs 56 more to pass Brad Johnson (1,040) for fourth-most in franchise history.Career Passing AttemptsWith 1 ,605 passing attempts, Winston is sixth in franchise history. He needs 79 more to pass Brad Johnson (1,683) for fifth.Career Rushing TouchdownsThe Bucs are still without a rushing touchdown by a running back this season, so things stand as they have all year. Winston can take sole possession of 14th with one more rushing score, which would bring him to nine for his career.Peyton Barber is still tied for 25th with four career rushing touchdowns. One more would pull him into a six-way tie for 20th and two more would bring him into a five-way tie for 16th.Jacquizz Rodgers is tied for 29th all-time with three. He can pull into that 25th-place tie with one more rushing touchdown on Sunday, while two would tie him for 20th.TacklesLavonte David has 580 tackles as a Buc, which places him fourth in franchise history. He needs 101 more to pass Hardy Nickerson (680) for third.Kwon Alexander needs two tackles on Sunday to pass Donnie Abraham (266) for 14th all-time. SafetiesDavid is in a first-place tie with one career safety. His next one would give him the Buccaneer record.InterceptionsDavid is still tied for 17th in interceptions with 10. One more would tie him with Jermaine Phillips and Jeremiah Castille for 15th. Passes DefendedDavid and Brent Grimes are tied for fifth in team history with 35 passes defended. Aqib Talib (52) occupies the fourth spot.Fumble RecoveriesDavid and Ronde Barber still share the franchise record for fumble recoveries (12). One more would make David Tampa Bay’s all-time leader.Forced FumblesDavid is tied for third with 17 forced fumbles. He is three away from passing Simeon Rice (19) for second.Games PlayedDemar Dotson is set to take sole possession of 29th all-time with his 106th game played. He will pass Jeff Gooch and Ricky Reynolds.Lavonte David will be playing in his 97th game as a Buccaneer, which ties him with Dave Reavis for 43rd-most in team history.
