Fitzpatrick helps Bucs beat Jets 15-10, end 5-game skid

Fitzpatrick helps Bucs beat Jets 15-10, end 5-game skid

On the Jets' next possession, quarterback Josh McCown would air the ball out only for it to be picked off by Bucs' cornerback Brent Grimes, who returned it 28 yards.

While it had its own struggles, New York's defense did enough to win the game. However, a third-down sack by the Jets' would prevent the Bucs from advancing it.

Tampa Bay's defense had a solid performance with six sacks. This will be a game where the Jets run away with it after dominating the middle part of the game.

From there, the two teams traded drives before Tampa Bay struck first, hitting a 29-yard field goal at the end of the first quarter and putting the Bucs up 3-0.

Running back Matt Forte sat out the game with swelling in his knee and the running game never got on track because of it, as stand-ins Bilal Powell (30 yards) and rookie Elijah McGuire (22 yards) were more spectators than impact players. He finished a 15-play, 81-yard march, also lasting more than seven minutes, with his TD pass to Sims to make it 15-3.

The Jets consistently gave the Bucs poor field position. Inopportune penalties also reared themselves, as Gang Green tallied eight of them for 77 yards. The Jets are playing much better than expected, and the Buccaneers were expected to take the next step into playoff contention. They're near the bottom of the league in all the major statistical categories, most importantly scoring. They have surprised teams this year with wins over the first place Jaguars, almost shutting out the Dolphins, and recently beating the Bills in prime time.

Now, the Jets head into their bye week with their already tenuous postseason hopes on life support. After starting the year out at a promising 2-1, the Buccaneers have dropped five straight games. Fitzpatrick is starting for Tampa Bay for the injured Winston.
