The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are off to their best start in years, and a large part of that credit is due to their defensive coordinator, Todd Bowles.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers currently have one of the best defenses in the NFL. No, it isn’t the late 90s or early 2000s, but the Buccaneers have returned to their former glory on that side of the ball. Throughout its short history as a franchise, the Buccaneers have been mostly known as a defensive team, and Todd Bowles has done right by that precedent.
