Pressure up the middle
The Bucs sacked Carolina quarterback Teddy Bridgewater five times, and three of those were by interior linemen.

Ndamukong Suh recorded two sacks, and added two quarterbacks hits, while William Gholston had one sack and two quarterback hits. It's a good sign for the Bucs defense that the interior linemen can get to the quarterback when the team's top pass rushers are being double teame

Arians said that Carolina was focused on stopping pressure from the outside, concentrating on outside linebackers Shaquil Barrett and Jason Pierre-Paul, which allowed the linemen to get more push up the middle. The Bucs had just one sack last week.

"I thought Vita (Vea) was held a couple of times, but you know, nobody's throwing flags this year yet," Arians said. "But ,yeah, I thought the pass rush was good." Suh had this sixth two-sack game of his career; he had just 2 ½ sacks all of last season.
