When Jameis Winston hit Mike Evans for a 44-yard pass to the Giants’ 9-yard line with 30 seconds left in Sunday’s game against the New York Giants — it seemed as if the Bucs were going to win the game easily.
Then Bruce Arians happened.
After the team spiked the ball to stop the clock, they would go on to take a delay of game penalty, then lose two more yards on a play to get the ball centered.
Bucs kicker would step up and miss the field goal and give the Giants a win.
Head coach Bruce Arians stated after the game that he actually took the delay of game penalty on purpose because he thought it would make the field goal easier.
“I just took it on purpose. He’s better back there. That field goal is easier back five yards,” Arians said. “We wanted to move the ball, put it in the middle and make it easier.”
Absolutely insane reasoning that cost his team a win.
