The Bucs have been posting up all kinds of impressive numbers this season. Whether itís running back Doug Martin, quarterback Josh Freeman or the bunches of interceptions grabbed by the defense, the Bucs have put themselves in some select statistical company.
Letís take a look at a few of the Bucsí most interesting numbers are through nine games.
QB Josh Freeman: In the past five games, Freeman is the highest-rated third-down passer in the NFL with a 121.2 rating. Heís completed 67.4 percent of his attempts and has no interceptions on third downs during that stretch.
RB Doug Martin: Even after a quiet week, Martin is tied with the Titansí Chris Johnson for third in rushing with 862 yards. Also, his four runs of 40 yards or longer leads the NFL.
WR Vincent Jackson: His per-catch average of 21.4 yards is tops in the NFL for receivers with more than 20 receptions. Jacksonís four catches of 40 yards or longer is tied for third.
LB Lavonte David: If it seems like David is making every tackle, itís because he nearly is. David is tied for fourth in the NFL with 81 tackles, second among rookies (Carolinaís Luke Kuechly is first).
The defense: The Bucs struggles in pass defense have overshadowed their ability to get takeaways. Tampa Bay is third in the league with 15 interceptions, trailing only the Bears and Giants. Ronde Barber leads the team with three picks.
Against the run: The Bucs are tops in the NFL, allowing 80.1 rushing yards per game and 3.5 yards per carry.

QuoteAntonio Brown says he suffered a high-ankle sprain in Pittsburgh's Week 9 win over the Giants.
Per USA Today's Mike Garafolo, Brown expects to play in Week 10, but he'll almost certainly be out if he's actually suffered a dreaded high sprain. Brown was initially deemed "probable" to return to Sunday's game before being downgraded to "questionable" in the second half. He didn't play a snap after the first quarter. His status will be updated no later than coach Mike Tomlin's Monday press conference, but owners shouldn't count on Brown suiting up against the Chiefs next Monday.

Doug Martin tore the cover off and exploded for 251 yards and four touchdowns on 25 carries, and chipped in four catches for 21 yards as the Buccaneers held off the Raiders 42-32 in Week 9.
It's official: He's graduated to RB1 status. LeGarrette Blount, whose fourth-quarter botched and ultimately fumbled exchange with Josh Freeman nearly cost the Raiders the game, finished with two carries for five yards. Despite the loss of LG Carl Nicks, Martin ran rampant on an Oakland defense that entered the game ranked 11th against the run and surrendered only 3.88 YPC. Martin averaged over ten yards a pop, including second-half scoring explosions of 45 yards, 67, and 70. Proving matchup proof with back-to-back monster games against the Vikings and Raiders, Martin will be a shoo-in top-ten running back play in Week 10 against the Chargers.

QuoteRotoworldMike Goodson is done for the day with an ankle injury.
Goodson, who entered the week on the injury report with turf toe, appeared to turn his ankle on a third-quarter run and will not return. Darren McFadden exited earlier with a leg injury and is also done for the day. Marcel Reece is operating as Oakland's primary back now, although that may be primarily due to his pass-protection skills in heavy comeback mode. Taiwan Jones, who doesn't have a carry this year, is listed third on the tailback depth chart.
