Bucs snap losing streak with 15-10 win over Jets

AP

Ryan Fitzpatrick didn’t get a lot of wins in games involving the Jets while playing for them during the 2016 season, but he got one playing against them this Sunday.

Fitzpatrick threw a touchdown pass to running back Charles Sims in the fourth quarter and the Bucs defense kept the Jets out of the end zone for the first 59:32 of a 15-10 Tampa win. The victory snaps the Buccaneers’ five-game losing streak and came without the help of injured quarterback Jameis Winston and suspended wide receiver Mike Evans.

Fitzpatrick was 17-of-34 for 187 yards and an interception to go along with that touchdown for a performance that was enough to give the Bucs their second-ever win over the Jets. The last one came in 1984, which was before either Fitzpatrick or Josh McCown was in the league even if it feels like they’ve both been around at least that long.

McCown was 23-of-39 for 263 yards and threw an interception in the first half before finding Robby Anderson for a touchdown with 28 seconds left in the game. The onside kick was recovered by the Bucs to make the final result academic, however.

He was sacked six times, which was an unusual development for a Bucs team that only had eight on the season coming into the game. Eight penalties for 77 yards was not an unusual development for the Jets and that lack of discipline is one thing the team should be trying to correct during their bye week.

  1. Mike Smith finally figured out he isn’t going to get pressure out of this defense without blitzing aggressively. It only took him a few months!

  2. Does someone want to tell me who Fitzpatrick thinks he is? What was him acting like a diva towards Bowles after the game all about? Just like last season with his comments towards the Jets management and coaching staff after he came in for relief and threw one touchdown, he comes off as a complete head case yet the media paints him as the golden boy from Harvard. And considering the Jets gave him 12 million dollars last season and he fell flat on his face he has no reason to be angry with anyone.

    so predictable
    lol@ jets

    Only thin predicatable is your ongoing insecurity and obsession with everything Jets and/or NY. What a tool!

  4. I subjected myself to this garbage of a game, and the Bucs looked just as awful. Basically someone had to win this game between two terrible teams.

    And actually – look across the board. Who is great? No one. It’s a league of mediocrity. Poor product, ratings are declining, superstars getting hurt, etc etc etc.

    And you guys wonder why the NBA is getting so much run when you go to other sports websites. Give me Hockey, give me basketball. Better products, and better managed.

    yes, as a pats fan and my enjoyment of the jets hilarity of patheticness means i am “insecure”…lol!

    can’t be made up, folks

  6. Want cant be made up is your delusion that because you root for a very good team that somehow their success translates to you when the fact is you have nothing to do with any of it- so the sad truth is Skippy it is insecurity.
    Even the Pats fans that comment on THEIR team have pointed out what an idiot you are- perhaps its time to go back in mommy’s basement and play Madden – the grownups are talking now!
