Late turnovers doom Bucs in 13-10 loss to Cards
TAMPA -- Just when it looked like the Mike Glennon era would open with the Bucs' first win of the season, Arizona struck for 10 points in the final 3:06, handing Tampa Bay a 13-10 loss Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.
Glennon, the rookie making his NFL debut, threw an early touchdown and led 10-0 in the fourth, and didn't make a mistake until late in the fourth, when Patrick Peterson picked off a pass at the Bucs' 13. Carson Palmer hit Larry Fitzgerald for a tying touchdown on the next play, and Arizona drove for the go-ahead field goal with 1:29 left.
The Bucs (0-4) had a shot at a long drive to win, but Peterson intercepted Glennon again with 0:48 to seal the win. The Bucs committed three turnovers in the final quarter and head into the bye week with a winless record.
Arizona (2-2) found its passing game in the second half -- after throwing for 58 yards in the first half, Palmer threw for 104 in the third quarter alone. But twice, drives deep into Bucs territory ended with interceptions -- rookie Johnthan Banks made a one-handed, leaping interception in the end zone, and on the next drive, corner Darrelle Revis picked off a sideline pass intended for Fitzgerald.
Glennon, a third-round pick making his first start in his NFL debut, connected with Mike Williams on an 8-yard touchdown in the first quarter. The Bucs took a shutout into the fourth quarter, when Doug Martin fumbled at midfield and Arizona converted, with Feely connected on a 42-yard field goal.
