The Buccaneers won their most decisive victory of the season this year, pounding the Minnesota Vikings into submission on Thursday night 36-17 behind an explosive offense.


The Bucs went off on the Vikings, a very respectable defense that has kept teams in check for most of the season. This is a team that shut down Frank Gore, Chris Johnson and other high powered offenses and the Bucs were no match for them in primetime. So let’s get to it and hand out some game balls to some very deserving people.

OPPOSING GAME BALL Percy Harvin|WR (7rec, 90yds, 1TD)

There is no denying the talent Percy Harvin possesses and he’s been showing that to the NFL all season long. The whole reason the game was tight at the start was because of Percy Harvin and his knack to alway find the ball and do something with it. Micheal Koenen managed to contain Harvin’s kick returning abilities but early on Harvin was running all over the Bus defense.

His touchdown catch in the second quarter was a thing of beauty and there was no way Eric Wright could have defended it. Judos goes to Christian Ponder for floating it in there but Harvin was in the right place and did everything perfect. He’s been the MVP for the Vikings so far and it was because of him the Vikings almost pulled ahead of the Bucs early on.
