Several reached milestones despite the loss.

Rachaad White led the Bucs with 110 yards from scrimmage, contributing a career-long 38-yard rush in the game. He carried the ball 15 times for 100 yards rushing – the second-highest single-game rushing total of his career. His 6.7 yards per attempt on Sunday marked his highest average in any game of his career. It was the first individual 100-yard rushing performance by a Tampa Bay player since White rushed for a career-best 105 yards on 11/13/22 vs. Seattle. He is also the first Tampa Bay rusher to average 6.5 yards per carry or better in a single game (min. 10 rush attempts) since Ronald Jones on 1/3/21 vs. Atlanta.

White has accumulated 75-or-more scrimmage yards seven times this season – tied for the second-most such games among running backs this season through Sunday’s 1 p.m. games. He trails only San Francisco’s Christian McCaffrey’s 10-such games in 2023.

Mike Evans hauled in his eighth and ninth receiving touchdowns of the season and the 89th and 90th of his NFL career. With his first touchdown in the game, Evans broke a tie with Don Maynard (88) for the 15th-most touchdown receptions in league history. Evans led the team with six receptions for 70 yards and two touchdowns.

Evans’ 91 total touchdowns in his career surpassed Leroy Kelly and Charley Taylor (90) and tied Davante Adams (active), Isaac Bruce, Tony Dorsett, Edgerrin James, Bobby Mitchell and Ricky Watters for the 32nd-most total touchdowns in NFL history.

Evans currently ranks second in the NFL in receiving touchdowns through Sunday’s 1 p.m. games, trailing only Miami’s Tyreek Hill (10).
