Buccaneers Defeat Seahawks in Week 12

A quick recap of the Buccaneers' Week 12 victory over the Seahawks.

Pictures from the Buccaneers' Week 12 matchup with the Seahawks.

The Buccaneers got off to a fast start on Sunday, scoring touchdowns on back-to-back drives to begin the game. Behind a dominant defensive performance, that would be enough to seal a victory as Tampa Bay defeated Seattle, 14-5, at Raymond James Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Seahawks started three rookies along their offensive line, and Tampa Bay took full advantage. The Bucs recorded six sacks, with Noah Spence recording 1.5 of them. At halftime, Seattle had just one total passing yards. By the end of the game, the Seahawks had just 118.

The Bucs forced three turnovers on the day, both of which were earned while the Seahawks were on the edge of field goal range. Alterraun Verner recorded the first, picking off Russell Wilson at the end of the first half. In the fourth quarter, Lavonte David recorded a fumble as Seattle was driving and Bradley McDougald added a second interception on the Seahawks' final drive of the game.

Mike Evans scored both of the Bucs' touchdowns, hauling in a touchdown from three yards out on the team's first drive and another from 23 yards out on the following drive. Evans caught eight passes for 104 yards, bringing his total to 10 touchdowns on the season and surpassing 1,000 yards on the season in the process.
