Tampa Bay Rushing Offense vs New Orleans

There’s plenty of excitement over the Buccaneers’ new-look passing attack. But for a variety of reasons, that doesn’t extend to the run game (not yet, at least). The Tampa Bay ground attack has been vanilla and unimpressive under Bruce Arians, and it will now be split among three plodding backs that don’t inspire confidence. Ronald Jones II, Leonard Fournette, and LeSean McCoy have combined to average just 3.9 yards per rush over the past 2 years. They’re working behind an offensive line that’s generally stout up the middle, but has questions on the outside with rookie Tristan Wirfs and Donovan Smith who has been average thus far in his career.
