The Buccaneers escaped a defensive battle on Sunday, knocking off the Cowboys, 10-6, at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. The victory propels the Buccaneers to 4-5 on the season.

The Bucs trailed for the majority of the game before scoring their lone touchdown with 54 seconds remaining to take the lead. Jameis Winston picked up the score for the Bucs, running for a one-yard touchdown. His score was the only touchdown either team scored all day; the Cowboys earned all six of their points on field goals in the first half.

Winston finished the day completing 22 of 39 passes for 264 yards. He was intercepted twice, the first time he'd turned the ball over since Week 4. On the receiving end of the majority of his passes was Mike Evans, who caught eight passes for 126 yards. Sunday's game marked the second consecutive 100-yard game for Evans and his fourth this season.

Doug Martin had success both running the ball and catching passes out of the backfield. He picked up 103 total yards, 63 rushing and 40 receiving. His four receptions were second on the team to Evans.

Leading Tampa Bay's defense was linebacker Lavonte David, who put together one of the best games of the season so far. David recorded a team-high 12 tackles, one of which was for a loss, in addition to defending a pass and earning a sack. David had nearly twice as many tackles as any other Buccaneer.

On Dallas' final play of the game, Bradley McDougald intercepted a Hail Mary attempt from Matt Cassel to seal the victory. Tampa Bay will begin a two-game road stretch next week when the team travels to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles.
