Instant Analysis: Bucs hang on for a crucial win vs. Jets

Fantasy football start/sit Week 10: What to do with Josh McCown

In a battle of journeymen quarterbacks, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick found just a bit more success against his former team, than New York Jets quarterback Josh McCown did against his, as the Bucs and Fitzpatrick outlasted the Jets, 15-10 in Tampa on Sunday. However, a third-down sack by the Jets' would prevent the Bucs from advancing it. Robby Anderson caught a 38-yard TD pass in the final minute for the Jets, scoring for the fourth straight game to give NY one last chance.

After the debacle of taking one of the historically great collegiate kickers in Roberto Aguayo in the second round of the NFL Draft, who couldn't survive training camp in his second season, the Buccaneers have struck gold with Patrick Murray.

CB Darryl Roberts picked off a Fitzpatrick pass and got his first interception as a professional. Since his first game against the Arizona Cardinals, Murray has converted all five of his extra point attempts and made four field goals in five attempts, two of which were from 50 yards. Overall, the Jets defense didn't get off the field quick enough; they gave up two scoring drives lasting 7:56 and 7:25. It was the key to fending off the rally from McCown, who racked up over 100 passing yards and a touchdown after having just over 100 passing yards through three and a half quarters.

NY failed to score any points in the first quarter. For the game he totaled three run stops, and also notched a quarterback hurry on a pass rush. They also had 5 penalties for 44 yards in the first half.

The quake has also been felt by Turkey, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates, according to reports. It wasn't immediately clear if there were casualties or how much damage the temblor caused.

New returner JoJo Natson averaged 18 yards a kick return and fielded just one punt for zero yards.

On the other side of the field, the Bucs defense bottled up the Jets rushing attack and forced McCown to throw 39 times, completing 22 passes for 262 yards and a late touchdown to Robby Anderson. But a 21-yard fourth-quarter run by Charles Sims III, on a third-and-15 in which he broke two tackles, kept a scoring drive alive.

S Marcus Maye was called for illegal contact as he intercepted a pass by Fitzpatrick.
