Buccaneers vs. Jets Social Rewind

Posted Sep 8, 2013

To open the 2013 NFL season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers squared off against the New York Jets. In the end, it was the New York Jets on top, 18-17. In a game full of big hits, lead changes and edge-of-your-seat plays, here is how it all went down through social media.

A slow start offensively for the Buccaneers led directly to the first points of the game. New York Jets – 2, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 0. From Pewter Report: The Bucaneers answer back before the close of the quarter. Local writer JoeBucsFan praises Freeman on a laser throw for the first Buccaneers touchdown of the season: First half note from Bucs reporter and Sports talk host Tom Krasniqi of 620 WDAE and 95.3FM Tampa Bay: A big turnover for the Bucs. @TBBuccaneers highlights: One play later, its Doug Martin, as called by Buccaneer mascot, Captain Fear: As the first half closes, Jets QB Geno Smith tosses his first career TD: ESPN’s Pat Yasinskas efficiently sums up the Bucs vs Jets 3rd quarter: Up 14-12 in the fourth quarter, TBO writer Ira Kaufmann noted this about Vincent Jackson, who ended the game with 154 receiving yards on seven receptions, his 6th 100 yard game as a Buc: With time running down, a field goal put the Jets ahead. TBO’s Roy Cummings added: After a Buccaneer three and out, with just ##### left, the Bucs’ defense took the field again, down 15-14. Lakeland Ledger writer Rick Brown: And the three-and-out did come. 2:14 remaining. Buccaneers offense on the field at their own 20-yard line. A few plays later, WDAE 620 commented: Fourth down. 38 seconds left. Tampa Bay Buccaneers official Twitter @TBBuccaneers: Jets get the ball back. Deep pass down the middle. Then Geno Smith runs to the right, going out of bounds, he is pushed by Lavonte David. 15-yard late hit out of bounds penalty called. Jets in field goal range. Buccaneer legendary LB has this to say: Jets K Nick Folk connects from 48 yards out. And the clock winds down.
