The Buccaneers had the perfect start to the game as on the first play Bobby Rainey got the handoff from quarterback Mike Glennon, found a hole in the defense and ran all the way to the endzone on an 80-yard run for the touchdown.

Buffalo hit back with a field goal through the boot of Dan Carpenter from 40 yards out after a drive from EJ Manuel was killed by the Bucs defense just before they reached the redzone.

Tampa Bay's offense took advantage of their defensive stand as they put another touchdown on the board. Glennon escaped a collapsing pocket and threw downfield on the run to Vincent Jackson in the endzone who peeled off his man for a 38-yard touchdown.

The Buccaneers had the chance to add to their score just before the break but Glennon was intercepted by Stephon Gilmore in the endzone.

However, he made up for it minutes later when he found Tim Wright for a five-yard touchdown with 16 seconds left.
