Among the reasons Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was so effective last Sunday was that he took advantage of opportunities to scramble for important gains against the New Orleans Saints defense.

Fitzpatrick on Sunday, in addition to an incredibly efficient passing game with 417 yards and four touchdowns, ran 12 times for 36 yards and a touchdown. It might not seem like an impressive stat line, but it'd look a lot better without four kneels that knocked 4 yards off his total. Two of his other eight runs converted third downs and another scored a touchdown.

When the Saints face the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, the defense knows it can't allow quarterback Tyrod Taylor to have similarly impactful plays with his feet.
