Tama Bay Buccaneers hold surprising 21-7 lead on the road in Seattle at half time

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers lead the Seattle Seahawks 21-7 on the road at half time.

Yes, you read that correctly.

The Bucs played arguably their best half of football this season and took it to the heavily favored Seahawks for the first 30 minutes.

A Mark Barron interception on Seattle’s first drive got the day off to a good start for the Bucs and it would only get better from there.

Mike Glennon hit Tim Wright for a 12-yard touchdown, which was followed by a 20 yard pass to Tiquan Underwood to make it 14-0.

The Bucs would immediately get the football back after Jermaine Kearse fumbled the kickoff return and it was recovered my Michel Koenen.

The Bucs would convert on that drive as running back Mike James hit Tom Crabtree with a jump pass for a two yard score that extended the lead to 21-0.

The Seahawks got on the board late in the first half as Kearse hauled in a 16-yard pass from Russell Wilson.

Mike James has been dominant for the Bucs in his second career start as he has 82 yards on 17 carries. Glennon has shown tremendous poise and ability to keep a play alive which was highlighted on the two touchdown passes he threw. He is 10 of 11 for 124 yards and two scores.

The Bucs defense has played admirably too, keeping Wilson and Marshawn Lynch at bay for the most part. Barron has six tackles to go along with his interception.
