The first preseason game is now in the books. The Buccaneers were sloppy to say the least, but that is to be expected from a first playoff game. There are no major injuries to report (hopefully that stays the same tomorrow). Notable inactives were of Adrian Clayborn, Gary Gibson, Lawrence Tynes, Davin Joseph, Carl Nicks, Luke Stocker, and of course Darrelle Revis.  So to put any weight into this result is simply not something that should be done.

Here are some stat lines that stuck out to us.

Josh Freeman – 4 completions in 7 attempts. 34 yards, played in two drives.

Mike Glennon – 11 for 23, 169 yards, 1 INT

Brian Leonard – 6 attempts, 23 yards, 1 TD

Kevin Ogletree – 5 receptions, 65 yards

Tom Crabtree – 1 completion, 63 yards

Lavonte David – 3 tackles, 1 sack

Johnthan Banks – 5 tackles
