Everything was there for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to wins it second game of the season, except time. For the second game in a row the Buccaneers have out-scored their opponent in the fourth quarter, against Green Bay it was eleven points put up by the Bucs to win the game 38-28 and against the Miami Dolphins the Bucs put up 14 fourth quarter points as Tampa tried to rally another come-back game with Freeman leading the offense.

Despite throwing an interception, Freeman remained composed and allowed himself to bring some hope to the Buccaneer offense that before the half only had acquired 6 points by way of 2 field goals.

Freeman ended the day 16/28 for 196 yards 1 TD and 1 interception passing with 36 yards off 7 attempts rushing. A very productive day when you consider the fact that Freeman connected with veteran Tight-end Kellen Winslow during the second half drive to end the day with 7 receptions for 102 yards. Kellen Winslow has become an accessible prime receiver with 35 receptions for 352 yards and 5 TDs on the season as the Buccaneers continue to try to find some sort of offensive break-through as they are now 1-8 on the season.

Next week the Bucs will host the NFC South first place New Orleans Saints at Raymond James Stadium.
