The Buccaneers trail the Bengals 10-7 at half.
Josh Freeman missed only one series and is now back in the game at Quarterback but Center Jeff Faine has left the game injured and his return is being called doubtful. Jeremy Zuttah has replaced Faine at center.
The Buccaneers offense has made two miscues, an interception by Freeman on his 1st pass since coming back in the game and then later a fumble by Mike Williams in the redzone. The Bucs need to stop shooting themselves in the foot if they want to remain in this game. Both turnovers have cost the Buccaneers potential points.
The defense has mostly held Carson Palmer and the Bengals in check and the special teams contributed a tipped punt. Safety Sean Jones has left the game with an injury and was replaced by Sabby Piscatelli.
The Bengals exectued an efficient two minute drill before halftime, capped off by a Mike Nugent field goal.
