Tampa Bay (4-4)

Pleasant: Tampa Bay’s top three draft picks haven’t needed much time to make their presence felt. Doug Martin (pictured) is the NFL’s hottest running back with a jaw-dropping 486 yards from scrimmage and six touchdowns in the past two games. Lavonte David is quickly becoming Tampa Bay’s best outside linebacker since Derrick Brooks. And hard-hitting strong safety Mark Barron is third among all rookie defensive backs in tackles (48) along with eight passes defensed.

Unpleasant: When signing cornerback Eric Wright to a five-year, $38 million contract in the offseason, the Buccaneers weren’t expecting him to cause off-field headaches. Wright, though, was arrested on a felony DUI in the offseason and now, as reported by FOX Sports NFL Insider Jay Glazer, faces a four-game NFL suspension for illegal use of Adderall. Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib also got popped for a positive Adderall test without a prescription before being traded last week to New England. Tampa Bay ranks last in the NFL in pass defense with a 321.1-yard average. - Alex Marvez (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)
