Bruce Arians won't allow the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to look past the Denver Broncos, who are 0-2 and depleted from injuries entering Week 3.

"I don't think we can let our guard down. We haven't done shit," the head coach said Wednesday, according to ESPN's Jenna Laine. "We're nobody to look past anybody."

The Buccaneers are coming off their first victory of the season in Week 2, though the team's offense was again an issue at times versus the Carolina Panthers.

Despite an eventful offseason that saw the Buccaneers acquire future Hall of Famers in quarterback Tom Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski, the club ranks 25th in total offense through two weeks.

Gronkowski, in particular, has struggled after ending his retirement. The 31-year-old has logged just two receptions for 11 yards, and he's been a red-zone nonfactor after being a force there prior to this campaign.

"We brought him in to just play tight end," Arians said, according to The Athletic's Greg Auman. "If that means no catches, that means no catches. If it means 10 catches, it means 10 catches because he's open and that's where the ball goes."

The Broncos are teetering after dropping their first two contests and losing stars Von Miller and Courtland Sutton to season-ending injuries. Denver will also be facing the Buccaneers without quarterback Drew Lock, who's expected to miss three-to-five weeks with a shoulder injury.
