Tampa Bay Offense Comes Alive In Second Quarter, Bucs Lead 17-7

Earlier this week, head coach Raheem Morris told the media that it was time for his offense to step up and start winning games for this young Tampa Bay Buccaneer team. Though they started slow today against Seattle, Morris may get his Christmas wish afterall, as his offense has come to life in a big way in the second quarter against the Seahawks.

Trailing 7-0 late in the first quarter, the Buccaneers have gone on to score 17 unanswered points and roar to a 17-7 lead over Seattle at Halftime. Josh Freeman found tight end Kellen Winslow in the back of the end zone on a pretty roll out from the 10-yard line. Then, following a three and out by Seattle, Freeman engineered another drive capping it with a 20-yard strike to Mike Williams who juked the corner out of his shoes to find the end zone.

Connor Barth, who started the rally with a late first quarter field goal had a second field goal try blocked at the end of the second quarter.
