Another national TV game, another lackluster Buccaneer performance and another loss.   This game never felt as close as a three-pointer with a deciding fieldgoal by former Buc kicker Matt Gay in the fourth quarter.  The defense never got close to Jared Goff, Tom Brady was terrible on anything over 10 yards downfield and the Bucs fell to 7-4 on the season.
