Buccaneers linebacker Shaq Barrett recorded 4.0 sacks in Sunday's loss to the Giants, bringing his season total to a record-tying 8.0 through the first three games of a season.

Bucs coach Bruce Arians said that he took the delay-of-game penalty on purpose. "He's better back...the field is easier back 5 yards. No sense in hurrying. We wanted to move the ball over, put it in the middle and make it an easy field goal."

Bucs legends Jimmie Giles, Warren Sapp, Mike Alstott, Derrick Brooks and Paul Gruber welcomed Ronde Barber into the Buccaneer Ring of Honor in a special halftime ceremony.

The Bucs' defense under Todd Bowles had quietly been the talk of the league through the first two weeks of the season. But today, in the second half alone, they surrendered 300 passing yards and three touchdowns to rookie Daniel Jones and allowed the Giants to come back from an 18-point deficit.

Janoris Jenkins' final numbers allowed when he was the nearest defender to the targeted receiver today: 8 completions on 13 targets for 191 yards and two touchdowns, per NFL Next Gen Stats. Most yards allowed as nearest defender in a game this year.

Shaq Barrett's 8.0 sacks are tied with Mark Gastineau in 1984 for the most by a player through the first three games of a season, per ESPN Stats & Info. He also has officially earned a $250,000 bonus.

Evans unstoppable with 3 first-half TDs (1:09)

Three touchdown throws from Jameis Winston to Mike Evans in the first half. Granted it was against a weak Giants defense, but this is the most in-sync their passing game has looked this season. Important they can keep that going with the Rams on-deck next week.

Janoris Jenkins has only played a half, but so far in Week 3 no player has allowed more yards when the nearest defender to the targeted receiver than Jenkins with 129 (on 8 targets), per NFL Next Gen Stats.

Ronde Barber quickly heads from the booth downstairs to the field. His Ring of Honor induction ceremony is happening in moments.

Chris Godwin has caught a touchdown pass for two consecutive weeks. Can he make it three in a row? He's benefited from Mike Evans drawing double coverage.

Before Ronde Barber can be inducted into the Buccaneer Ring of Honor at halftime, he's gotta call a game for Fox. Rules are rules. This was just before he greeted Warren Sapp with a giant hug.

Stepbrothers fans will appreciate what the Bucs just broke their huddle with prior to taking the field: "F—- sh— up!"

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Bucs coach Bruce Arians emphasized to players all week that they have to practice just as hard following a win as they do a loss. He's pleased with the way they responded with that. He still wants them to clean up the penalties and felt like they should have had two more touchdowns last week.

Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans stops for a selfie with a fan after his warmup. He's had a quiet first two weeks, but against a Giants' defense that has allowed an average of 321 passing yards — third-most in the league — today's a prime opportunity.

Bucs inactives against the Giants: LB Devin White, CB Jamel Dean, QB Blaine Gabbert, LB Devante Bond, G Zack Bailey, T Jerald Hawkins and TE Tanner Hudson.

Bucs chief operating officer Brian Ford told me that the NFL's ban on pyrotechnics will not affect the firing of the cannons. He explained that the ban is on the field. "It does not affect the pirate ship," he said. So cannons will still fire.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Bucs coach Bruce Arians has ruled out Devin White, Jamel Dean, Blaine Gabbert and Devante Bond for Sunday against the Giants. That's White in between Deone Bucannon and Lavonte David. Tough to see, but he's got a bulky brace on his left knee.
