A lot of the criticism for the loss was directed towards veteran quarterback Tom Brady, who had an underwhelming outing in Week 11 having thrown 2 interceptions.

However, critics highlighted that Head Coach Bruce Arians must accept some of the blame for their recent setback.

Antonio Brown will get more opportunities on the ball, says Bruce Arians

Despite the loss, there were some positives for the Buccaneers to be happy about on Monday. The performance of wide receivers Antonio Brown, Mike Evans, and Chris Godwin was a promising sign for coach Arians.

But a recent concern put forward by the media is the lack of involvement of Brown in offensive drives. Coach Arians said that this issue was bound to change in the coming weeks.

“Well, he was open. We had one go off his fingertips [and] I’m used to seeing him make that catch. We missed him last week on a ball, so it’s just a matter of hitting him.

“He’s doing a great job of running after the catch and within his role, I think he’s doing a really good job. It’s just when he’s going deep, we’re not hitting him,” Arians told media personnel after Monday’s loss via Pro Football.
