Buccaneers Fall to Cardinals in Week 6

Posted Oct 15, 2017

Recapping the Buccaneers' Week 6 matchup with the Cardinals.

Despite a valiant comeback effort, the Buccaneers fell to the Cardinals, 38-33, in Arizona on Sunday afternoon. Tampa Bay falls to 2-3 on the season following the loss.

The Buccaneers found themselves trailing, 24-0, at halftime. Arizona scored back-to-back touchdowns on their first two drives to end the first quarter leading, 14-0. Ten more points in the second gave the Cardinals a 24-point lead at the break. The Bucs trailed by as many as 31 points.

Tampa Bay scored their first touchdown in the third quarter before rattling off 27 points in the fourth quarter, but it proved to be too little too late.

Jameis Winston was injured during the first half of the game and did not return. Winston appeared to be warming up on the sideline as the Buccaneers began to rally – a sign that the injury could be minor.

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 22 of 32 passes for 29 yards and touchdowns in relief of Winston. The Buccaneers have another road game on deck for next week. The team is set to travel to Buffalo to face the Bills.
