TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Tampa Bay's running game has slowed down during a two-game losing streak, and the Buccaneers know they need to get rookie Doug Martin going again to remain in playoff contention.
Nevertheless, coach Greg Schiano says he's not overly concerned that Atlanta and Denver were able to contain the budding young star, who's third in the NFL is rushing and second in total yards from scrimmage despite not finding much room to run lately.
Schiano noted Martin appeared to be on his way to a good game against the Broncos before Peyton Manning threw a couple of touchdown passes and Von Miller returned an interception for another TD in the third quarter to force Tampa Bay (6-6) to become one dimensional on offense during a 31-23 loss on Sunday.
