Week 3: at Atlanta Falcons

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Josh McCown has moved the ball well enough to set up the Buccaneers to score - in fact, last week he handled the scoring himself with 16/21 for 179 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown (one sack taken for -4 yards), while rushing for 2/6/2. Vincent Jackson (seven targets for 4/51/0 receiving last week) and Mike Evans (four for 4/49/0) are the main cogs in this receiving corps, though Brandon Myers (two for 2/33/0) showed off some skills in Week 2, while Austin Seferian-Jenkins was idled due to a foot/ankle injury. The Falcons allowed three rushing TDs to the Saints during Week 1 (28/139/3 rushing allowed), so Drew Brees didn't have to win the game with his arm. Nevertheless, the Falcons still coughed up 29/42 for 333 yards passing, one TD and one interception generated, with zero sacks of Brees. Last season, the Falcons ranked 20th in the NFL averaging 244 net passing yards allowed per game, with a mere 10 interceptions (tied for 29th) and only 32 sacks generated (also 29th in the NFL). So far this year, the Falcons average 317.5 net yards passing allowed per game (31st in the NFL) - this defense is pretty soft in both phases of the game, friends, as the Bengals illustrated with 16/24 for 302 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown, with zero sacks taken last Sunday. This is a great matchup for the Buccaneers - Atlanta's defense is one of the worst in the league again this year.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs CAR (2 / 2 / 20 / 1 rec)

Owusu didn't see the field a ton, but did play in three wide receiver sets when they Bucs chose that formation. Owusu scored on a streak down the sideline from 19 yards out. The corner he matched up against attempted to jam him, but released him due to zone responsibility underneath. Owusu darted down the sideline, twisted his body and snagged a high-arching lob pass as his toes dragged backwards out of bounds. He crashed to the ground and held on to the ball for one of the Bucs' two touchdowns on the day. His other reception came on a quick hit that only gained one yard.
