Salem, OR — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers‘ head coach was given a warning following his team’s win over the Kansas City Chiefs. The Buccaneers had the game in the bag with a score of 27-7 and after picking up a first down with under two minutes left, all the Buccaneers had to do was kneel the ball and run out the rest of the clock. However, the Buccaneers head coach decided to run up the score and proceed to run plays, which is a violation of league rules.
Do not try and score if you have locked up the win. Anyone who tries to score when all they need to do is kneel down to run out the clock will be given a warning. This includes games vs the CPU.
If the Buccaneers head coach is found guilty a second time he will be facing a one week suspension. The league would also like to remind everyone that even if you aren’t caught violating a rule immediately, the league does review games and if a head coach is found guilty of violating a rule, regardless of when it took places, they will be reprimanded accordingly.
