The Tampa Bay Buccaneers lose in more ways than one during week two in Minnesota.
The Minnesota Vikings took down the Bucs in a big way, by torching the Tampa Bay defense. The Tampa defense had zero help from the offense and the Buccaneers lost the game 34-17.
Before the game, a majority of the team locked arms and WR’s DeSean Jackson and Mike Evans took a knee after a controversial week in sports after comments made by the President.

Brent Grimes, Kwon Alexander and Chris Baker all missed the week two match up with the Minnesota Vikings, and it may have been better that they did. While they went down early quick on the scoreboard, some key players also went down with injury.
Case Keenum ended the game absolutely dominating the Buccaneers defense. Completing 25 out of 33 passes, including 369 yards and three touchdowns, two to star receiver Stefon Diggs who also gave the defense a hard time all game.
There’s multiple things to critique in this week’s loss, but arguably the worst thing to happen is the injury to LaVonte David:

After looking like a seasoned veteran in week one, Jameis Winston came out completely flat against the Vikings. Throwing three interceptions, two which were very iffy coming from an NFL QB. Winston ended with 328 yards and two touchdowns.
Mike Evans showed his frustration on the sideline during the fourth quarter after a Jameis Winston interception.
The injuries plagued the Bucs in week two. LaVonte David, Vernon Hargreaves, Gerald McCoy, Noah Spence, T.J. Ward, and more all went down and will seek further attention on their individual injuries. Back-up defensemen Sealver Siliga, Kendall Beckwith, Javien Elliot, Adarius Glanton and more all played a part in the Bucs defense, filling in for injured Buccaneers.
After this disaster, Tampa Bay will come home to take on the New York Giants, who are 0-3.
