Bucs finish preseason winless, drop finale to Colts, 27-10

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers finished the 2022 preseason winless, dropping Saturday night’s exhibition finale 27-10 on the road against the Indianapolis Colts.

Tampa Bay lost by three scores despite outgaining the Colts in total offense, and winning the time of possession battle.

Tom Brady saw his first and only action of the preseason on the game’s opening drive, completing six of his eight pass attempts for 44 yards while leading the Bucs to a field goal to take an early lead.

Ke’Shawn Vaughn led the Bucs with 36 yards rushing on nine carries, scoring Tampa Bay’s only touchdown of the night. Patrick Laird, tallied 35 yards on 12 rushing attempts, while adding 19 yards on a three receptions through the air. JJ Howland had a team-high 46 yards receiving, all of which came on his only catch of the night.

Lavonte David, Andre Anthony and Chris Cooper each registered a sack for Tampa Bay, continuing a solid preseason for the Bucs’ pass rush, which got to opposing quarterbacks 10 times in three games.

Next up for the Bucs will be final roster cuts, as they trim down from 80 players to 53 before Tuesday’s deadline. Then comes a road trip to Dallas to face the Cowboys in Week 1 of the regular season.


Is Kyle Trask really the future at QB for the Bucs?
