The Tampa Bay Bus are no longer undefeated but their first defeat left a bad taste in the mouth of some people.

With a few minutes to go in the game, the Bucs didn’t even try and call a timeout to make an attempt to get back in the game late in the fourth quarter.

In the final quarter, the Bucs allowed the Eagles to waste the last 9:22 seconds to win the game as they seemingly just gave up and took their timeouts with them to the locker room.

Social media called them out.

The Eagles took advantage of the Buccaneers’ shorthanded defense and went on to win 25-11.

Jalen Hurts had a field day and finished with 277 yards and one touchdown on 23-of-37 pass completions, but he did have two interceptions. The Philly QB also rushed 10 times for 28 yards and one TD.

Baker Mayfield tallied just 146 yards in the contest, completing only 15 of his 25 pass attempts. He had one touchdown and one interception.
