“Why did Josh Jacobs disappear from the offense for multiple consecutive series?”
Jacobs’ dilemma last Sunday has little to do with his game, but with the Pirates’ defensive lighting.
The top seven of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the battle for the offensive line against the Raiders. The offensive line missed nearly a week of practice training. They were able to correctly stack the boxes on the Raiders and showed the most Of the assault pack game.
This resulted in Jacobs finishing the game with 1
Coach Gruden expressed the same view in praising Tampa’s tenacious defense, but he is not worried that Jacobs’s performance will continue.
Coach Gruden said: “Well, he was beaten without a doubt, just like most defenders and football players at this point.” “Tampa Bay is an excellent defense. They are an excellent running defense… …They are a difficult team to fight against. They squeeze on the front line. They cover up the center and two defenders. You can’t find any of their defenders. Sometimes these guys don’t miss tackles. This is A tough defense.
“I think (Josh Jacobs) is good. We have to let Ruggs III go forward, we have to let Jacobs go forward, but I am really proud of our offense. I think our offense is a great football, we just Get better while moving forward.”
