The Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost their opener to the New York Jets in a nail-biter. Linebacker Lavonte David's late hit out of bounds on QB Geno Smith made all of the highlowlight reels, because the penalty moved the Jets into field-goal range, but he wasn't the only Bucs defensive player to earn a thrown flag. Pro Bowl safety Dashon Goldson and second-year S Mark Barron each got an unnecessary roughness penalty. Nonetheless, even though coach Greg Schiano discussed with his players how refs will call certain plays, he wants his defense to remain aggressive.
