I don’t know about a “culture change” at One Buc Place, but I sure as heck see a scoreboard change.

On a day they were officially eliminated from the postseason, the Bucs gave every indication to their fans that the times they are a-changin. A defense burdened by giveaways stiffened in the second half and Jameis Winston directed a 542-yard assault against an Indianapolis team desperate for a win.

Winston kept coming and coming, despite throwing a pick-6 and two other interceptions. When the final seconds ticked off, Tampa Bay had closed to within one game of the magical .500 mark, matching the Colts at 6-7.

The Bucs were not supposed to win this game. Who says? NFL history, that’s who.

But Tampa Bay found a way to eke out a close victory at home after dominating Atlanta and Jacksonville on the road. The Bucs trailed virtually the entire game, which began with a pair of Tampa Bay giveaways at midfield.

Here’s how the Bucs beat the Colts by the same 38-35 margin that marked the final score of the miracle Indianapolis comeback in the 2003 Monday night meltdown at Raymond James Stadium on Tony Dungy’s birthday: (more…)

BY IRA KAUFMAN

Call it complementary football if you wish. Yes, the offense and defense of the Bucs meshed together Sunday to generate yet another road win against a division foe.

But in my mind, the Bucs played so well and so hard, that effort should be lauded and savored. Let’s call that complimentary football.

Let’s also call it Tampa Bay’s most impressive road win in three years, dating back to a 19-17 victory at Arrowhead against the Chiefs, who had been 7-2. (more…)
