TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay’s struggles on offense haven’t shaken the Buccaneers’ confidence in rookie quarterback Mike Glennon.

Coach Greg Schiano on Monday reiterated his belief that the third-round draft pick is making significant strides, even though the sputtering Bucs (4-10) slipped to last in the NFL in passing and total offense following a 33-14 loss to the defending NFC champion San Francisco 49ers.

While Glennon posted modest numbers, completing 18 of 34 passes for 179 yards and two touchdowns, the Bucs were 1 for 10 on third-down conversions for the second time in three weeks and gained a season-low 183 yards.

Despite winning four of six games following an 0-8 start, the offense has posted its four lowest yardage totals while going 2-2 over the past month.

Tampa Bay plays at St. Louis on Sunday.
