The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had a fantastic win Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers as Vincent Jackson caught a 5-yard Mike Glennon pass with seven seconds left to clinch a 27-24 win.

While there were some standout performers, there were also some disappointing performances.

Michael Koenen

The Bucs punter was not at his best Sunday as he averaged just 35.3 yards on three punts. His longest boot Sunday was just 40 yards as he had a pretty poor day at the office. On one play he punted 36 yards but a penalty allowed the Bucs to re kick. Koenen then punted the ball just 32 yards. Simply, Koenen needs to be better.

Doug Martin

Martin returned to the line up for the first time after being injured in the Bucs’ season opening loss to Carolina. However, Martin couldn’t get going Sunday as he managed just 40 yards on the ground despite running 14 times but he did add a rushing touchdown. He also caught two passes for 16 yards.

Anthony Collins

The Bucs’ left tackle was not at his best Sunday. In the first half he was called for two holding penalties and was fortunate later in the game that he wasn’t called for holding on Martin’s touchdown run.
