Buccaneers Defeat Bears in Week 10

A quick recap of the Buccaneers' Week 10 victory over the Bears.

Pictures from the Buccaneers' Week 10 matchup with the Bears.

The Buccaneers defense turned in a dominant performance on Sunday, forcing four turnovers and a safety as Tampa Bay downed Chicago, 36-10, at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.

The Bucs' defense scored twice, with Chris Conte returning an interception for a touchdown in addition to the Bucs' safety. Brent Grimes also had an interception while Bradley McDougald and Kwon Alexander each recovered fumbles. The Bucs sacked Bears quarterback Jay Cutler four times, including once in the end zone, forcing a safety. Robert Ayers led the team with 1.5 sacks.

Conte led the team in tackles with seven while Ayers was closely behind with six.

Jameis Winston put together an impressive performance, including a handful of highlight reel plays. Winston completed 23 of 33 passes for 312 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. He recorded what might be one of the top plays in the NFL so far this season, escaping a handful of Bears defenders and hurling a deep pass downfield to Mike Evans.

For the first time since Week 2, Doug Martin was back on the field. Martin, who suffered a hamstring injury early in the season, carried the ball 16 times for 33 yards and a touchdown.

The Buccaneers will hit the road next week when they travel to Kansas City to face the Chiefs.
