Buccaneers-Packers: A by-the-numbers look at Tampa Bay’s 26-20 loss

Here’s a by-the-numbers look at the Bucs’ 26-20 overtime loss to the Packers on Sunday:

84

Passing yards for Packers quarterback Brett Hundley. The Bucs had won four of their past five games when holding the opposing quarterback to under 100 passing yards.

66

Rushing yards for Hundley on seven carries.

199

Packers rushing yards Sunday, the most the Bucs have allowed this season.

69

Jameis Winston touchdowns in 41 career starts (62 passing, seven rushing).

50

Winston turnovers in 41 career starts (39 interceptions, 11 fumbles lost). He lost a fumble in the second quarter Sunday that the Packers returned for a touchdown.

6

Career games, including Sunday, in which Winston has thrown multiple touchdowns and no interceptions. The Bucs are 2-4 in those games.

102

Rushing yards for Bucs running back Peyton Barber on Sunday, his first start of the season.

41

Receiving yards for Barber, most on the team.

1

Bucs running backs to rush for 100 yards in a game this season. Barber is the first to do it since Jacquizz Rodgers against the 49ers on Oct. 23, 2016.

165

Rushing yards the Bucs gained as a team, their most since gaining 249 yards against the 49ers.

2

Touchdown catches for Bucs tight end Cameron Brate, the second time in his four-year career he has scored multiple touchdowns in a game (also had two against the Rams on Sept. 25, 2016).

17

Touchdowns in the red zone for Brate since the start of the 2015 season. That’s a team high. Jaguars receiver Allen Robinson is the only NFL player to have more red-zone touchdown catches (18) in that span.
