And yet, somehow, the score isn't quite indicative of how the game actually unfolded.
On one hand, the Buccaneers were largely ineffective on offense and struggled to find room to work against a smothering San Francisco defense. But on the other hand, there were moments where it seemed like the Buccaneers were on the verge of climbing into the lead with strong defense and an improving offense.
In the end, it was a disappointing loss for the Buccaneers, who finish with a 3-5 record at home for the season.
