Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Seattle Seahawks: How they scored

How they scored

Team Score Time Drive The plays
1st 7-0


2:50 11 plays, 62 yards, 5:53 Matt Hasselbeck 1-yard run (Olindo Mare kick). Key plays: Marshawn Lynch did the most damage, turning a cutback run into a 29-yard gain to the Bucs 27. Hasselbeck threw a pair of 9-yard passes (to tight end Cameron Morrah and receiver Mike Williams), the second setting up third and 1 at the 4. The Bucs held once, but on fourth down, fullback Michael Robinson broke free of cornerback E.J. Biggers for a first down at the 1. Hasselbeck scored three plays later.


:25 4 plays, -11 yards, 2:25 Connor Barth 46-yard field goal. Key plays: Don't see many scoring drives that go 11 yards backward, but the Bucs pulled it off thanks to a 79-yard kickoff return by Micheal Spurlock to the Seahawks 17. A 13-yard sack of Josh Freeman on third down set up fourth and 21 at the 28. Barth, facing a stiff wind, was able to guide the line-drive kick through the posts.
2nd 10-7

Tampa Bay

12:23 6 plays, 52 yards, 2:27 Kellen Winslow 10-yard pass from Josh Freeman (Connor Barth kick). Key plays: Freeman connected on consecutive passes to Arrelious Benn (16 yards) and Mike Williams (17 yards) before LeGarrette Blount broke off right tackle for an 11-yard gain to the 8. Blount fumbled at the end of the play, but center Jeremy Zuttah recovered. Freeman hit the tight end in the right corner of the end zone on third down.

Tampa Bay

6:17 9 plays, 59 yards, 4:14 Mike Williams 20-yard pass from Josh Freeman (Connor Barth kick). Key plays: Two runs by LeGarrette Blount and a Freeman sneak picked up one first down before Freeman hit tight end Kellen Winslow for 21 yards to the Seattle 20. After two incompletions, Freeman (under considerable pressure) waited for Williams to come free and hit him at the 10. Williams dragged his defender for several yards before diving across the plane.
3rd 24-7

Tampa Bay

6:38 10 plays, 98 yards, 6:50 Kellen Winslow 21-yard pass from Josh Freeman (Connor Barth kick). Key plays: Freeman connected with his tight end three times during the 98-yard drive (which tied a franchise record), including a 29-yard gain from the Bucs 3 two plays after a 58-yard Seattle punt. Preston Parker caught a 5-yard third-down pass to keep the drive going, and LeGarrette Blount added 20 yards on a run off right tackle. Winslow made a sliding catch at the 3, got up before being touched and jumped across the goal line.

Tampa Bay

1:28 3 plays, 56 yards, 1:44 Mike Williams 7-yard pass from Josh Freeman (Connor Barth kick). Key plays: On first down after a Seattle punt, LeGarrette Blount cut off right tackle, hurdled safety Lawyer Milloy 5 yards downfield and rambled 48 yards to the 8. Two plays later, Freeman waited in the pocket for Williams to break free along the back of the end zone and hit him in stride in the right corner for the easy score.
4th 31-15

Tampa Bay

10:14 11 plays, 54 yards, 6:14 Leon Washington 16-yard run (Ben Obomanu pass from Charlie Whitehurst). Key plays: Washington started and finished the drive, opening with a 32-yard punt return to the Seattle 46. Whitehurst completed a 12-yard pass to tight end John Carlson on fourth and 8 and hit Obomanu for 14 yards to the 16. Three plays later, the former Florida State standout broke off right tackle, cut outside and sprinted down the sideline.

Tampa Bay

7:56 4 plays, 72 yards, 2:18 Maurice Stovall 2-yard pass from Josh Freeman (Connor Barth kick). Key plays: Any hopes of a Seattle comeback were quickly dashed as LeGarrette Blount, on the first play after the Seahawks' score, split the defense for a 53-yard gain to the 19. A 13-yard pass to tight end Kellen Winslow and a 4-yard run by Blount set up Freeman's fifth touchdown pass of the game, which tied a franchise record.
