Halftime Report: Buccaneers vs. Jaguars

Posted Aug 17, 2017

Recapping the first half of the Buccaneers' preseason matchup with the Jaguars in Jacksonville.

After a dominant first half, the Buccaneers head into halftime leading the Jaguars, 12-0, in Jacksonville. The game came after the Bucs and Jags held two joint practices in Jacksonville on Monday and Tuesday.

The Buccaneers' offense has been steady and consistent, thanks largely to the performance of quarterback Jameis Winston and running back Doug Martin. Winston has completed 20 of 28 passes for 196 yards.

Martin played a little more than a quarter and scored the Buccaneers' only touchdown of the half, punching the ball in from two yards out in the first quarter. Martin carried the ball five times for 30 yards and also caught two passes for 11 yards.

Following Martin's touchdown run, Nick Folk's extra point attempt was blocked. But Folk would add two field goals, one from 34 yards and one from 29, before the end of the half. Folk is expected to be the Buccaneers' starting kicker after the team released Roberto Aguayo following the team's first preseason game.

Gerald McCoy and Lavonte David put together strong performances in the first half as well. David had a sack, tackle for a loss and a pass breakup while McCoy had a near-sack that ruined one of the Jaguars' drives.
