Turnovers have been the difference in the first half of the Buccaneers' Week 4 matchup with the Broncos. Tampa Bay turned it over three times in the first half, while Denver has yet to commit a turnover. As both teams head into halftime, the Broncos lead, 17-7. Both of the Denver's touchdowns came off of interceptions.
Denver got on the board first, scoring on their first offensive play after intercepting Jameis Winston on the Bucs' first drive. Tampa Bay responded when Jameis Winston scored on a six-yard run, but Denver re-took the lead after Winston tossed his second interception of the game in the second half. Tampa Bay gave the ball up one more time before heading to the locker room, with Charles Sims fumbling near the end of the half. The fumble occured right on the edge of field goal range.
Pictures from the Buccaneers' Week 4 match-up with the Broncos.
The Buccaneers have dominated time of possession and ran nearly twice as many plays as the Broncos. Denver didn't convert a third down until the closing minutes of the half and are currently one-for-five. The Bucs' defense has also recorded three sacks.
The team will likely be without one of their captains, Gerald McCoy, who suffered a calf injury. His return is officially listed doubtful. The Broncos could be without their quarterback for the remainder of the game after Trevor Siemian left the field with an injury. He is listed as questionable. First-round draft pick Paxton Lynch entered the game in relief.
