GET THOSE TIGHT ENDS GO­ING

Tampa Bay Times - - Bucs -

Chicago gave up an 88-yard touch­down pass to Fal­cons tight end Austin Hooper last week, along with a 40-yard catch, thanks to cov­er­age break­downs that left him wide open.

Cameron Brate’s ca­reer high in catches (seven) came in last year’s Bears game — on seven tar­gets, no less — and his 84 yards that day for the Bucs were two shy of his ca­reer high as well. Add rookie O.J. Howard mak­ing his NFL de­but and the Bears be­ing with­out line­backer Jer­rell Free­man, who had 10 tack­les last week but tore a pec­toral mus­cle and is out, and you could see Jameis Win­ston hav­ing a good day throw­ing to tight ends.
