The LSU product has 22 carries for a team-best 116 yards with scoring. He also had 12 passes for 115 yards and two receiving touchdowns. In Week 2, Edwards-Helaire totaled 118 scrimmage yards.

Wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster plays a big part in this passing game. Smith-Schuster is confident and excels in the middle part of the pack. The USC product is second on the team with 178 yards on 14 receptions. Last week, he finished with eight catches for a season-high 89 yards.

Why the Buccaneers can cover

Running back Leonard Fournette is a difficult player to put down. Fournette can make a cut and take it home with breakaway speed.
