Figuring out an approximate way in determining just how successful the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were in 2010 tends to be a somewhat fruitless excise at times. We all know they improved from 3-13 in 2009, to 10-6 in 2010, but just how effective were they when you break down each drive, in each game you ask? Well for starters the team as we all know missed the playoffs, but for the most part they were efficient. The Bucs offense had 172 drives in 2010, managed 31.65 yards per drive, had a total of 37 three & outs (21.5%) and punted 76 times (44.2%). However, they turned 63 of those drives in to scoring opportunities and managed to score on 58 of them eventually (35 touchdowns & 23 field goals). Accounting for an efficiency rating of 33.7%.
The chart below breaks down just how efficient the team did on both offense and defense in 2010.
