Eric Wright and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers picked up their third consecutive win Sunday, defeating the San Diego Chargers, 34-24.
It was anything but easy.
An ankle injury forced Eric from the game in the first half, forcing his teammates to step up. They did. Trailing 21-17 at halftime, the Bucs secondary stepped up, keeping San Diego out of the end zone for the remainder of the game. Two interceptions led to 10 Tampa Bay points, propelling the team to victory.
"Our guys played team football. That's what we needed to do. It's like a pitcher when he goes out there. Maybe he doesn't have his fastball that day, but he works the whole game with different pitches and battles through it," said Tampa Bay head coach Schiano. "That's what our team did, held each other up."
