It’s been a good start to the Mike Glennon era for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The rookie quarterback, making his first career NFL start, has led the Bucs to a 10-0 half time lead over the Arizona Cardinals.
Glennon has completed 15 of 24 passes for 115 yards and one touchdown, which came on an 8-yard completion to Mike Williams.
Glennon has looked poised in the pocket and has made some nice passes. He’s also made a few errant throws but for a player making his first career start he has certainly performed admirably.
While Glennon has played well, the defense has been nothing short of fantastic. Gerald McCoy has been dominant yet again, as he has a sack, a fumble recovery, a pass deflection and has been in Carson Palmer’s grill all day.
Darrelle Revis has been in shutdown mode as Larry Fitzgerald doesn’t have a catch in the first half.
One disappointment for the Bucs has been the production of Doug Martin as he only has 27 yards on 16 carries but aside from that the offense has looked good.
The football has been spread around as seven different players have receptions in the first half, including Tim Wright, who has four catches for 28 yards.
Vincent Jackson, who was a late game decision, has one catch for 13 yards. Jeff Demps also made his NFL debut and his Olympic level pace has shown as he had an exciting 14 yard rush showing that he will be a useful player on the Bucs roster.
