Bucs pull off huge comeback in Minnesota

Tampa Bay Buccaneers v Minnesota Vikings Getty Images

The Vikings raced to a 17-point lead, but they couldn’t hold it.

The Bucs’ offense woke up in the second half, just in time for the Vikings offense to slip into a coma.

The end result?  Bucs win, 24-20.

Like last week, the Vikings couldn’t extend drives when they needed to extend drives, allowing the Bucs to capture and build momentum throughout the final two quarters, culminating in a nine-play, 61-yard drive that ended with LeGarrette Blount’s second touchdown of the day.

The Vikings got one last chance with 31 seconds left.  But Percy Harvin dropped the kickoff, limiting his progress to the 10, and there simply wasn’t enough time for Minnesota to get down the field, even though the Vikins made it mildly interesting with a Stanford band play that got the ball near the 50 via the efforts of Harvin and Adrian Peterson.

The loss drops the Vikings to 0-2.  They welcome to the Metrodome next week the red-hot Lions.

The win pulls the Bucs to 1-1, which at a minimum will get them a share of a three-way tie atop the NFC South.

Blount finished with 71 yards rushing.  Quarterback Josh Freeman completed 22 of 31 passes for 243 yards, with a touchdown and an interception.

    Looks like the Colts and Vikes laying down for Luck?

    McNabb and Berrian are just plain bad. Throwing to the dirt, overthrowing and stone hands are a horrible combination. They can’t rely solely on AP, Harvin and the defence game in and out. McNabb has to make downfield plays and keep drives going or we might as well stick Christian Ponder in.

    Might as well pencil them in for 0-3 right now. Go Lions!!

  4. gor3hound says: Sep 18, 2011 4:16 PM

    What a wonderful comeback, I got to admit it, after the first half I was really worried about the future of season -the offensive team was awful-, don’t know what Morris said in the locker room but, damn it worked.

    That is the most disgusting performance I have ever seen, and I’ve seen a lot of them. Second week in a row they’ve blown a halftime lead by performing like garbage in the second half. What are they telling them at halftime? At least they don’t have to worry about blowing a halftime lead next week. They’ll be lucky to be within three touchdowns at halftime. They shouldn’t even bother showing up. How can you possibly be so dominant in one half and then be so thoroughly dominated in the next? I never imagined this team could be worse than last year, but at this rate I can’t even imagine them winning a game this year. Maybe at Kansas City, but I wouldn’t count on it.

    Don is done. Period. Put Ponder in.

  11. maverick0 says: Sep 18, 2011 4:30 PM

    Petersen 19 carries for 92 yards in the first half (4.8 avg). 6 carries for 28 yards in second half. How the hell is calling plays for this team?

    McNabb is long past his prime and you are putting the games in his hands????????

  12. vikesfansteve says: Sep 18, 2011 4:33 PM

    Only thing worse than the Vikings second half offense is their second half defense.

    New year same results. Groundhog Day.

    MN is cursed earth for building on sacred Indian mounds.

  13. randallcobb says: Sep 18, 2011 4:36 PM

    Viking WRs are even worse than McNabb. Clean house.

  14. rabidbillsfan says: Sep 18, 2011 4:36 PM

    Big Comeback? The Bills were down 21-3 at half, and with 4 lead changes in the 4th, went on to win it! Thats a comeback, Nobody Circles the wagins like the BUFFALO BILLS!

  15. asublimeday says: Sep 18, 2011 4:41 PM

    On a day when my bears struggled, the fact that Minnesota is still at least 3 years from relevancy warms my heart.

  16. funkydunkleman says: Sep 18, 2011 4:41 PM

    I’m sure people will find a way to blame this on McNabb, but the blame goes to the entire defense. With the Vikings defense, you shouldn’t have to worry about scoring any more points after going up by 17.

    The defensive playcalling was terrible in the 2nd half. There was way too much blitzing. On the 51 yard play to Parker on 3rd and 12, Greenway and Henderson both blitzed. Why? Freeman threw in the spot where EJ should have been and it resulted in a huge gain that set up the Blount TD the next play. Fred Pagac should be penalized half his game check, because he apparently left the Stadium at halftime and let a lucky fan make the calls.

    McNabb had a few bad throws, and the receivers could have done a better job, but when you coast out to a 17 point lead at halftime, the responsibility goes to your defense to prevent big plays from happening, and they failed incredibly.

    I hope the return of Kevin Williams revitalizes this defense next week, because the Lions are no joke.

    The defense was on the field the entire 3rd quarter it is not their fault the offense can’t keep them off the field, by the 4th they were worn down and exhausted thanks to shoe string pass master mcnabb

  20. purpwalk says: Sep 18, 2011 4:59 PM

    0-3 coming. might go 0-6 in the division

    didn’t think vikes were gonna win the title, but what a joke. could’ve won both games and been 2-0. hell, even 1-1 would be respectable for this team at this point

  21. supersuckers3 says: Sep 18, 2011 5:00 PM

    Once again, a young team that did it right by playing and sticking with a young quarterback beats a team that refuses to learn. Is anyone surprised? Regardless, this team won’t win until its players show the heart to make it through sixty full minutes. Gutless. Heartless. And entirely expected.

  24. jessethegreat says: Sep 18, 2011 5:02 PM

    Vikes fans sure seem miserable. Better stock up on the kleenexes…. it’s going to be a LONG season.

    Gerhart did well in place of AD in the 2nd half, but how do you keep the ball out of your best player’s hands? If they’re going have a chance to win games this year, put the ball in AD’s hands 40x a game.

  25. thephantomstranger says: Sep 18, 2011 5:03 PM

    By the way, thanks Brian Robison for your offsides penalty that negated a fumble recovery at the Tampa Bay 10-yard line. The next play was a 50-yard pass on 3rd and 12 that led to a touchdown. The defense was much worse than the offense today, and the offense was terrible.

  26. bucforever says: Sep 18, 2011 5:08 PM

    GO BUCS!! I am so sorry for doubting you guys !! We were down 17 to zip with no big effort in sight.
    I actually turned off the game and went shopping with the wife. WOW! Am I glad for all the highlights on now. I hope the tempo is set for Atlanta next week. GO BUCS!!
    I promise I won’t give up again!!

  29. numberoneinthehoodg says: Sep 18, 2011 5:17 PM

    How long until Frazier is added to the hotseat list? Coaches make adjustments at halftime that are supposed to put you over the top, not behind. Play calling left something to be desired last week and now this week you blow another lead. Granted, it’s not all his fault, the players need to step up, but this doesn’t look good.

    Thanks – got a little sand in the vagina

  30. birdsnooper2 says: Sep 18, 2011 5:26 PM

    I’m glad they lost. You don’t want to go the Seagull route: mid-round picks every year and face 8-8 forever! Besides, with that brain trust in Seattle, they will never rebuild!

    Give us a top five pick!

    Go Vikes!

  31. deconjonesbitchslap says: Sep 18, 2011 5:29 PM

    Adrian Peterson, though flashy, is NOT a guy you want to center your team around. this is a passing league. the vikings are run first, and second, and possibly third. they will never win anything big with Peterson, though they might get some highlight reels. The entire NFC north should be happy they signed him long term because that means the vikings will finish last or 2nd to last every single year.

    the vikings continue to prove they can’t adjust to the new rules of the nfl. passing is encouraged! yet, they don’t do it effectively. The Packers are going to absolutely destroy them this year. I’m guessing 150 points total for the pack in the 2 games this year.

    the vikings should start packing their bags for LA. MN fans don’t care anymore and most won’t give a rip when they inevitably leave.

  32. silkyjohnson937 says: Sep 18, 2011 5:30 PM

    When I seen the score at 17-0 I told my brother that this is nothing new for the bucs ive watched alot of bucs games and for some reason the offense is ridiculously sluggish at the beginning of every game and they come out of halftime and make adjustments and at least make the games competitive sometimes the win sometimes they dont but I like hoe they at least make adjustments, the one thing I would like is to be able to hear what raheem says to the bucs at halftime because it always seems to work, no joke. Go bucs!

  34. mediasloppy says: Sep 18, 2011 5:45 PM

    It’s no secret the Vikings had their best years a few years back. Players now are old and too young. It’s a building process. Something other teams with big mouths now have that took years of building…
    Now the bandwagon Minnesotans will do nothing but whine and complain. Which could very well make a move to LA. I hate the loss and I’m not happy, but it’s reality.

  35. vikesfansteve says: Sep 18, 2011 5:52 PM

    Packers fans really need to shut that hole under their noses about fair weather. Same fans that wanted Lombardi to die after he left them for the Redskins. Same fans who boo’d Favre for leaving them & he revived your franchise from oblivion.

    It it were the SAME FANS, that means the same people have been cheering the same team for nearly FIFTY YEARS…THE SAME FANS! That is remarkable, thanks for pointing that out.

    Now…regarding Favre…Ron Wolf brought the team back, not Favre. There were eight NFL starters that came and went through Green Bay on Favre’s watch..any one of which may have won with the team Wolf put on the field. Favre deserves all the scorn coming his way for the manner in which he orchestrated his own exit out of Green Bay. We were here….we saw it…you read what the USA Today wanted you to read.

  43. pack13queens0 says: Sep 18, 2011 7:32 PM

    Isn’t this great? The Queens blow another one and are now 0-2, on their way to 0-16 while the Pack could go 19-0. And the Queens finally faccing blackouts soon as well. Don’t worry though, the word blackout won’t ever be mentioned when they’re in LA.

    Refuses to learn what? They drafted a young QB, but without OTAs they didn’t feel he is ready to start, so they brought in a vet until then. Many teams do this. As always, your hatred for a team clouds what little football knowledge you have.

    History revisionist at it’s best!

    For over a quarter century the Packers where utterly and completely insignificant. Wolfe may have been the architect for the Super Bowl team, but he wasn’t the architect for all of Favre’s teams in GB. Yet, Favre had just one losing season while playing for the Packers, bringing significance to a team that was wallowing in mediocrity before his arrival. Yet you fans showed your level of class and ignorance when you then blindly hated him. Apparently the apples don’t fall far from the tree in Wisconsin since your ancestors did the same to Lombardi.

    More recently you GB fans praised James Jones when he was on your team, ripped him when it looked like he might sign with the Vikings, then praised him again when he re-signed with the Pack and finally ripped im again when he questioned his touches in the Saints game.

    You people rip Vikings fans when they are supportive of their team and now you rip them when the are critical. Priceless!

    Reading their posts on Vikings’ threads over the last several years, it’s clear that Packer fans are missing the “c” and the “l” in class.

    That’s right your loyal fan base has to be given incentives like 50% off tickets in the upper decks to fill the Dome.

    Won’t lose 2 in a row at home ? At least your a fan unlike Steve Dumba$$ Who only recourse is to say Packer Fans are fair weather fans. Which is not only wrong but ignorant. I hope the Vikings win next week Detroit needs a punch in the mouth

    Heck even Pervy Harvin has shut up and so has the Steeler Troll Deb. Maybe them not around will improve the other NFL’s Fans ideas about the Vikes. But Steve sure can bring that opinion lower

    Tyrell Johnson needs to be cut. He dropped another interception inside the 10 in the last minute which would have won the game. He can’t catch and he can’t tackle which should be requirements for an NFL safety.

    with the D built on stopping the run in this pass happy league, it just keeps looking like bigger slabs of swiss cheese, the D was NEVER built for stopping the pass, & now linebackers and secondary correctly look worse & worse by the game & year. Greenways contract extension was way overpriced for a decent LB on a below average D.

    BTW, what stupid OC calls a play in the first quarter on first down with qb in shotgun formation with no RB’s behind him right afte #28 just ran 3 consecutive plays for 9 yards each!!? it was an easy self inflicted drive killer after McNabb had 2 incompetions after that, horrible play calling at the time.

    We can also thank Robison for a stupid off sides penatly that took away a fumble recovery and int that Tyrell Johnson had gift wrapped in his hands (again) which he dropped & would have sealed a win on last drive of game.

    Simply put, the D is already dated from 2 years ago and need playmakers BADLY in secondary. Also Sullivan is not making it at center, both losses come when o-line getting hammered in second half with vikings not able to make blocking corrections at all in second half, out coached & outplayed again…..sorry this could get long & old fast…..

  55. ridle9 says: Sep 19, 2011 10:44 AM

    Same old stuff out of this franchise. Sad coaching, no qb, and no heart. I have seen this out of them for decades. THE most underachieving and obviously overrated team in the NFL. Sick of them. Sick of McNabb. Sick of Bernard Berrian. Overrated and NO HEART!!!! Weak, Lame and totally out of their league.
    They are soft…they are unaware, and they are totally out coached week in and week out.
    Perennial LOSERS.

Favre was traded cuz we had a pretty good player waiting for his chance… so the Packers moved on and traded him, with a clause to say he can not be traded to the Vikings… what did the jets do? Cut him so he could go sign with the Vikings. :facepalm: Of course the packer fans that stuck their necks out to support favre, were mad. The man they loved was now the enemy.

    The point he was making was that it’s hard for a rookie to step in as the starting QB without any OTAs. That’s not really applicable to the Packers because they have a veteran QB who has been in the system for years. Of course, the Packers are doing their best to make rookie QBs look good.

    That is the most disgusting performance I have ever seen, and I’ve seen a lot of them. Second week in a row they’ve blown a halftime lead by performing like garbage in the second half. What are they telling them at halftime? At least they don’t have to worry about blowing a halftime lead next week. They’ll be lucky to be within three touchdowns at halftime. They shouldn’t even bother showing up. How can you possibly be so dominant in one half and then be so thoroughly dominated in the next? I never imagined this team could be worse than last year, but at this rate I can’t even imagine them winning a game this year. Maybe at Kansas City, but I wouldn’t count on it.

    You are kidding me right?

    No. Favre knew what he was doing. He wanted out because he thought he was running out of time and he thought the Vikings represented his best chance of ever getting back to the SB. He orchestrated his way out of GB for selfish and personal reasons and he deserves whatever scorn is thrown his way. What is so difficult to understand?

    What a wonderful comeback, I got to admit it, after the first half I was really worried about the future of season -the offensive team was awful-, don’t know what Morris said in the locker room but, damn it worked.

    He said “Do I have to remind you guys that we’re playing the minnesota freaking vikings…”

    I’m more concerned about what Frazier said in the locker room. “Good half guys. Now go throw your helmets onto the field for the second half and we’ll have the celebratory barbeque at my place later, okay?”

    I was ecstatic over the win but we had no business winning this game….There is for some reason, very little that actually works for the Bucs this season.

    I knew leslie wouldn’t be any different after the chicago game at the u of mn. They should have dumped berrian and changed the pass defense. Johnson, asher allen and guys aren’t cuttin’ it. Put everson griffen in place of robison. The linebackers have to upgrade over erin henderson. Greenway gets burned a lot. I skipped training camp because I wasn’t impressed and many vikes take off out the back of the shower facility to duck autgraphs while we are waiting in the sun for 2 hrs. When your pass D sucks you upgrade! Linebackers…upgrade from leber. O-line is bad with charlie johnson put mckinney was lame-o and he didn’t do good his 2nd game, let flacco get sacked. the vikes are #3 in rush td’s BUT 25th in pts, 27th in yards and 31st! in pass td’s. I hate to see shanahan and the packers laugh their asses off but they are. I see 7 more losses to the like of the packers, lions, saints,etc., 1 win over KC and 6 that can go either way. Good luck vikes, you are gonna need it. Is this a swiss cheese defense, impotent/limp offense and les steckel as head coach? maybe…50 years of this crap is overwhelming.

    Is blount the son of shaft? sure looks like him. Dang diesel truck comin’ at ya. tyrell johnson…come on man! jared allen is our source for picks. dump berrian play jenkins and give aromashadu(spelling) a chance. Throw to rudoplh more. Percy’s gotta concentrate on those returns and kick ass like the chargers game.

    Bucs can’t even sell out their home games. Pitiful

    Neither can the Queens. They had a lot of empty seats yesterday. Queens fans are worse, actually the worst in the NFL.

    I know this is off topic, but Donovan McNabb threw for 39 yards last week. The distance from homeplate in baseball to 2nd base is 127 feet, which is further than what Donovan threw in that entire game. Now, years may pass and QB’s may come and go….but us Packer fans will never forget that factual nugget of goodness!

    if u would have heard the intercom at the game, PAID attendance was well over 62,000……you cannot blame the team on ppl that buy tickets & dont show up

  71. pack13queens0 says: Sep 19, 2011 10:35 PM

    It only got to 62,000 because of the half-price discount on tickets & yet another corporate buyout. The Queens play in a Stadium with the smallest capacity in the NFL & with the lowest ticket prices in the NFL as well. Pathetic. And it’s not like there’s anything else to do in Minnesota either.

    Favre had just one losing season while playing for the Packers, bringing significance to a team that was wallowing in mediocrity before his arrival. Yet you fans showed your level of class and ignorance when you then blindly hated him.
    ______________________

    Favre shouldn’t feel bad, because I cheer against all QBs that have and will played for Minny nothing personal.

    I completely agree with you, on the QB situation. I understand the frustration a reach that had so many other players that could have helped THIS season like Nate Solder…

    While I do take jabs at the Vikings, its all for fun, football is more fun when games are competetive (steelers ravens…) That being said,

    Get Well Soon Minny.

    I’ll let one of your own explain it to you:

    tbf22 says:

    Favre was traded cuz we had a pretty good player waiting for his chance… so the Packers moved on and traded him.

    The Packers traded him. Let me repeat that for you…the Packers…traded Favre…to the NYJ! The Packers moved on! Why is it so hard for you GB fans to grasp that? It was the right thing to do, it’s just that they did it in a crappy way.

    God forbid Favre still wanted to play after the mighty Packers told him he was done. He ended up at a place where he knew the headcoach, the OC, the system and where he could prove he wasn’t done. Go figure.

    The compariosn to Benedict Arnold only works if he had been booted out of the country first.

    Wow! This post belongs in the Stupid Hall Of Fame! Please tell me you didn’t read that after you typed it and stil thought “yeah, I’m going to submit it”.

    After all, there’s so much to do in Green Bay. It’s practically the cultural capitol of Brown County.

    ROTFLMAO!

    based on your screen name i will assume u r a packer fan so i would like to extend an invite to you when the pack come to town in bout a month. i will show u lots of culture round town (sorry it will not be grain belt & cheese curds), we have musuems, theatre, baseball, hockey, womens basketball, thriving arts & entertainment, there are ppl who travel the world with residence in MN, i will also take you to tailgaiting MN style (that is if u r brave enuff to go into the eye of the tiger). you can make fun of us all u want, that just proves your ignorance

  76. pack13queens0 says: Sep 20, 2011 10:38 AM

    So culture is a reason the team never sells out except when they play the Packers? Team can’t sell out because so many people are @ the Science Museum, seeing a play @ the Guthrie or walking around the Walker Arts Center? Just goes to show Minnesota doesn’t deserve a football team. And who really cares about other sports like baseball, hockey & women’s basketball? Football & Nascar are the only 2 sports that matter. As for tailgating, it doesn’t even come close to rivaling Lambeau, nothing does. And don’t blame me when youur team moves to LA and Minnesota never sees the NFL again.

  77. CoachFrazier4Life says: Sep 20, 2011 1:27 PM

    Nothing more obnxious then over zealous-Viking hating Packer fans when their team is doing well. Just about the lowest in class when it comes to ones fanbase hating another. You Packer fans that love the appear on Viking posts after we lose are just about as idiotic as it comes and are truly the most pathetics fans in the national football league.

    And yes, please continue to mock our loyalty as the only seats that never sell and thus endanger a blackout are ALWAYS in row 27+ on the second level of what is most likely the worst facility in the national football league. Yet, the Minnesota Vikings are always in the top ten for viewier rating nationally every year since before Favre ever took a snap in grade school.

    What are you going to use as your punchline anyway after the Minnesota Vikings open Arden Hills in 2015 anyway. Los Angeles has been such an easy fall back for the pathetic Packer fans.

    And if Minnesota doesn’t need a team then why do so many freakin’ Packer fans live here? You love Green Bay so much MOVE BACK.

    @ Frazier4life-I actually live in Wisconsin but unfortunatly I get Minnesota TV & Radio. I just think it’s wrong that I have to purchase Sunday Ticket to see my state’s team (They’re not just Wisconsin’s team, they’re America’s Team). I pay taxes to the State of Wisconsin, I should have every right to see every Packer game @ no extra charge.

    =================================
    Buy a ticket on stub hub or go to a freaking bar you ignorant POS!
    No one wants to hear you whine about not seeing the Packers.
    I live in Wisconsin and I can see 14 of 16 Vikings games on TV. If i can’t, I’ll go to a bar- or I’ll buy a freaking ticket.

    Contrary to popular belief- Packers tickets are readily available all over the internet-a” big fan “like you- I’m utterly flabbergasted that you don’t attend every home game- what a turd you are.
    I’d rather hop in a clothes dryer with Magic Johnson and a bunch of needles than read another one of your posts.
