Ad supporting Carli Lloyd’s NFL dreams ran in a Tampa newspaper after the Bucs’ kicker missed a game-winning field goal

Deodorant company Secret bought an ad in the Tampa Bay Times supporting Carli Lloyd and mocking the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' kicking woes.

The ad shows Lloyd kicking a field goal and asks, "Do you sweat 34-yarders?" The Bucs lost to the New York Giants in Week 3 when kicker Matt Gay missed the game-winning 34-yard field goal.

The ad then says Lloyd should be able to play in the NFL.

A video of Lloyd went viral in August after she nailed a 55-yard field goal at Philadelphia Eagles training camp. The video spawned speculation about Lloyd making it as a kicker in the NFL, and she reportedly even received offers from NFL teams.

According to ESPN's Jenna Laine, Lloyd isn't expected to seriously pursue an offer until 2020, so she can train.

Despite Gay's struggles early in the season, Bucs coach Bruce Arians confirmed the team's commitment to Gay, saying, "He's not going anywhere."
