However, through six games Ward has been used sparingly and he expressed some regret over his decision after a loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
"I love playing here", McDermott said with a chuckle. "So I want to be able to go out there and run and get right back into it with my guys".
After squandering a 17-6 lead, Buffalo overcame a 27-20 point deficit by scoring 10 points in the final 2:28. I came here to make this defense better. Some days you don't feel it as much as others.
Buccaneers rookie tight end O.J. Howard almost doubled his season totals with six catches for 98 yards and two touchdowns. "We're not going to win many games if we continue to do that, starting with me, shoot, giving up a touchdown".
Taylor's lone touchdown of the game was thrown to fellow Virginia Tech Hokie Logan Thomas - the first of his National Football League career on just his second ever catch. "Last week, I didn't even play the first half". With just over three minutes remaining in the game, Tyrod Taylor's first pass of the drive went to Thompson for 44 yards and the Bills were instantly in Buccaneers territory. He's not missed an attempt from beyond 50 yards since missing a 50- and 52-yarder in a 35-6 win over Arizona on December 21, 2014. His career long is 58 yards. Patrick Murray of the Buccaneers also had two field goals in the first quarter, with his first being a 50-yard field goal.
