Buccaneers running back Charles Sims rushed 12 times for 51 yards and secured all four of his targets for 85 yards in Sunday's 38-31 victory over the Jaguars.
The Bucs' backfield was hitting on all cylinders Sunday, and Sims managed to turn in yet another big play through the air while also managing a season-high 51 yards on the ground. After consecutive weeks in which he recorded a touchdown reception, Sims produced a dynamic 56-yard reception in the third quarter. The play began as a simple third-and-long screen pass that the second-year running back maximized with an impressive burst of speed down the left sideline. Sunday's performance provided a glimpse of the added dimension that Sims' superior pass-catching ability brings to an offense, and he'll look to continue his recent impressive play when Tampa squares off against the Redskins in Week 7 following the bye.
