Jason Pierre-Paul: ‘We need everybody out here’
Eduardo Encina, Tampa Bay Times, published 26 November 2018

There was a noticeable number of empty seats at Raymond James Stadium for the Bucs' 27-9 win over the 49ers on Sunday, with huge swaths of the silver stadium club seats and the upper deck unfilled. The announced paid attendance was just 50,436, which is about 15,000 short of the stadium's capacity.

Following the Bucs' win, defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul said he hoped to see a fuller stadium for next week's division game against Carolina. "They're coming in strong, and we're coming in strong, too," Pierre-Paul said. "This is our house. (Hope) we have the home-field advantage. We most definitely need every fan out. It was kind of empty out there today. We still love the fan support, but we need everybody out here. If we're going to do it, we're going to do it with everybody. … We need everybody here."

Breida was 49ers’ best offensive weapon in loss to Bucs
Matt Breida's breakout season continued Sunday with friends and family watching as the former Nature Coast Tech running back recorded his second straight 100-yard rushing game against the Bucs. Breida, a second-year undrafted free agent out of Georgia Southern, was the 49ers' biggest offensive weapon in their 27-9 loss to the Bucs. Breida totaled 140 offensive yards, including 106 rushing yards on 14 carries.

"I was really focused on, you know, I wanted to win," Breida said. "It's always nice coming back home and playing in your hometown, in a stadium you grew up watching your team play, but I wasn't too overly emotional about that."

Breida had three plays for gains of 20 yards or more, including a 33-yard run on the 49ers' first play from scrimmage. "Any day you know you can break a big run like that on the first play of the game like that, you know it's going to be a good day," Breida said.

A 21-yard run in the second quarter brought the 49ers into the red zone before they scored their only touchdown. Breida also added a 24-yard gain on a screen pass in the third quarter. But ultimately, as the 49ers fell behind in the second half, Breida became a lesser part of their game plan, touching the ball just six times after the half.

Breida was stopped on a second-and-goal at the 1-yard line on the 49ers first offense drive of the second half. San Francisco was unable to score a touchdown — which could have tied the game — and then saw the Bucs score 14 unanswered points. Breida, who anchored a run game that ranked third in the league entering the day, averaged 7.6 yards per carry, and his 34 receiving yards were a season high.
