The Buccaneers dropped their season opener on Sunday night, 42-14, to the Titans at home. Despite a difficult game, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins excelled.

He put together the best game of his career against the Titans, catching five passes for 110 yards and two touchdowns. Seferian-Jenkins had caught just two touchdowns during his entire rookie season in 2014.

“I always feel confident about what I can do,” Seferian-Jenkins said. “I always felt this way, but I need to keep on working, we’ve got to keep on working. The most important thing is that we win and that we get better as a team. The most important thing is the team, not me.”

Seferian-Jenkins’ performance was one of the best by a Bucs tight end in recent memory. He became the first tight end to catch multiple touchdown passes in a game since Kellen Winslow in 2010. In addition, he had the most receiving yards by a Bucs tight end since 2011.
