Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Cleveland Browns: How they scored

How they scored

Team Score Time Drive The plays
1st 7-0


2:48 6 plays, 61 yards, 2:15 Mohamed Massaquoi 41-yard pass from Jake Delhomme (Phil Dawson kick). Key plays: The Bucs provide an assist on the first scoring drive of the season, keeping the march alive with an offside penalty on third and 5, then allowing running back Peyton Hillis to pick up 12 yards on a draw on third and 12. One play later, Delhomme floats the ball to wide receiver Massaquoi, who runs in untouched on a post pattern after safety Tanard Jackson whiffs on his interception attempt.


0:50 5 plays, 49 yards, 1:58 Connor Barth 49-yard field goal. Key plays: The Bucs pick up a free 16 yards on the opening play on a pass interference penalty. Quarterback Josh Freeman adds another 33 one play later with a scramble down the right sideline. Two incompletions and no gain on a quick throw to wide receiver Mike Williams force the Bucs to settle for Barth's field goal.
2nd 14-3


5:35 5 plays, 63 yards, 3:09 Peyton Hillis 10-yard run (Phil Dawson kick). Key plays: The Browns score their second touchdown without even attempting a pass, using five running plays to pad their lead. Joshua Cribbs picks up his second first down from the wildcat formation (one rushing, one passing) before running back Jerome Harrison breaks off right tackle for a 39-yard dash to the Bucs 10. Hollis picks up the rest on the next play, sweeping around left end for the touchdown.


0:18 1 plays, 3 yards, 0:08 Mike Williams 3-yard pass from Josh Freeman (Connor Barth kick). Key play: Under heavy pressure for one of the few times in the half, quarterback Jake Delhomme (with defensive end Stylez White draped around his ankles) tries to dump a pass in the right flat. But it flutters short, and veteran cornerback Ronde Barber intercepts. Barber appears headed for a touchdown but is caught from behind and pushed down at the 3. That sets up Freeman's scoring toss on the next play.
4th 17-14

Tampa Bay

6:45 6 plays, 47 yards, 1:52 Micheal Spurlock 33-yard pass from Josh Freeman (Connor Barth kick). Key plays: The Bucs start with good field position (the Browns 47) after Spurlock's 11-yard punt return, and they pick up a first down with a 14-yard reception by wide receiver Sammie Stroughter on third and 10. Freeman overthrows a wide open Mike Williams on the ensuing first down but makes up for it two plays later when he lobs a perfect pass to Spurlock in the end zone for the go-ahead score.
