While Bucs fans in Tampa are happy about just getting a win, folks in Pittsburgh, including the players, feel they let a "sure win" get away.
After the Bucs surprisingly got of Pittsburgh with a a late game-winning touchdown pass by Mike Glennon to Vincent Jackson to beat the Steelers 27-24, some Steelers players also realize that same Bucs team had just gotten slaughtered by the Falcons one week before.
"We just lost to one of the worst NFL teams in our house," Antonio Brown said on Monday. "We blew the game. We feel embarrassed, we feel shame."
Brown did his part with 7 receptions for 131 yards and 2 touchdowns, but a drop by Brown on a deep pass in the 4th quarter after a successfully run flea-flicker was probably the difference in the outcome of the game.
"Losing the game at the end is unacceptable."
In the Bucs locker room, rookie tight end Austin Sferian-Jenkins took the opposite approach of Brown and was just happy to leave Pittsburgh with the win.
“At the end of the day, a win is a win," Seferian-Jenkins said on Tuesday. "You just want a ‘W,’ so any way you can get it, we’ll take it."
While the Steelers are currently trying to figure things out, the Bucs have their own questions to answer. Yes, they got their first win of the season behind some clutch throws by Mike Glennon, but can he be that quarterback for 4 quarters and consistently through games? If he can not, the Bucs will face an even tougher question after the season.
Another harsh reality as to how the Bucs are viewed nationally is the point spread for Sunday's game against the Saints. While both teams are 1-3 on the season, the Bucs are currently 11.5 point underdogs to their division rival.
Apparently, Antonio Brown isn't the only one who believes the Buccaneers are "one of the worst NFL teams."
