Week 10 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Takeaways

Ryan Fitzpatrick wasn't as flashy as the injured Jameis Winston, but he got the job done as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers snapped a five-game losing streak, topping the New York Jets 15-10.

Fitzpatrick has played for seven different teams during a 13-year career, including the Jets the past two seasons.

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.


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 Jets have silenced their critics this season and have gone from a team expected to win very few if any football games this season to a group that has not only been competitive nearly every week but has pulled off some impressive wins including last Thursday's domination of the Buffalo Bills.

On the Bucs' next possession, punt returner Bernard Reedy would nearly make it to the house, but settle for a nice 44-yard return, setting Tampa Bay up at midfield. The Buccaneers rode the hot hand again for three more field goals, including one from 49 yards to survive. The onside kick was recovered by the Bucs to make the final result academic, however. However, a third-down sack by the Jets' would prevent the Bucs from advancing it.


Brent Grimes celebrates an interception.

Kendell Beckwith comes up with a sack. They will return to the field November 26 against the Carolina Panthers.

The Bucs defense was able to get to the quarterback easily as Will Clarke, Darryl Tapp, Robert Ayers, Gerald McCoy, Clinton McDonald and Kendell Beckwith recorded a season-high six sacks against the Jets.


Up next, the Buccaneers hit the road to Miami to take on the Dolphins Sunday.
