"We didn't have a fast start," Head Coach Lovie Smiths said. "The turnover didn't help us any at all. You can't give up a punt return like that. We started playing better football by the end of the half."
Both teams kept their starters in for just one second-half drive.
Jameis Winston finished the day completing six of 15 passes for 90 yards and was intercepted once. His deepest pass of the day came on a 26-yarder to Vincent Jackson in the second quarter, which set up a Doug Martin touchdown run on the following play. Jackson finished the game as the Bucs' leading receiver with 38 yards.
