Guilty as charged
Garrett Gilkey’s first NFL start at center was a memorable one, for all the wrong reasons. Claimed off waivers from Cleveland on the brink of the 2014 season, Gilkey suffered through an error-filled game filling in for Evan Dietrich-Smith, who was sidelined with an illness.

The miscues began early as Gilkey dribbled a snap back to quarterback Josh McCown on third down from the Bengals 10-yard line after a Johnthan Banks interception, forcing Tampa Bay to settle for a field goal by rookie Patrick Murray. “I didn’t get my hand on it,’’ said Gilkey, whose only other pro start came in 2013, when he opened at left guard for the Browns at Pittsburgh. “The bad snap was on me.’’

But Gilkey’s nightmare was just beginning. He had two penalties declined and was flagged twice more, including a critical holding call on the final drive after the Bucs reached Murray’s field goal range with a first down at the Bengals 31.

“It comes down to focus and being consistent,’’ Gilkey said. “When I get out of sorts, I tend to get sloppy, and today that showed up. We put ourselves in position to lose today — and I was a huge part of that.’’
