Two Aqib Talib interceptions put Broncos up on Buccaneers

Aqib Talib said he was more mature on this trip to Tampa Bay than he was when he lived there.

He’s playing like a grown-up too, with a pair of interceptions helping the Broncos to a 14-7 lead on the road.

The Broncos took early advantage of a Jameis Winston interception deep in his own territory, with Trevor Siemian finding Demaryius Thomas for an 11-yard touchdown on the next play.

But Winston immediately led the Bucs on a long drive, scoring himself on a 7-yard run to even the score.

But Talib struck again in the second quarter, setting up C.J. Anderson’s touchdown run.

The Buccaneers have other problems as well, as star defensive tackle Gerald McCoy limped off the field, as trainers looked at his left ankle. He’s been announced as doubtful to return with a calf injury.

    Trevor Simian is the best QB on that field….
    Tampa’s qb is an interception throwing machine…

    I predict Broncos defense having an outstanding day!
