TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay coach Raheem Morris took issue with his team’s effort during a lopsided loss to Houston and says he’ll use more-physical practices to try to pull the Buccaneers out of a midseason tailspin.

Poor tackling contributed to a subpar performance against the Texans, and Morris said it’s time the NFL’s youngest team gets back to basics with more practices than usual in pads.

The coach said Monday that the Bucs will practice twice in pads this week in preparation to face Green Bay this weekend. The league’s new collective bargaining agreement limits teams to 14 workouts in pads during the regular season, including a maximum of three over the last six games.
