The Tampa Bay Buccaneers captains, QB Josh Freeman, CB Ronde Barber, LB Adam Hayward, WR Vincent Jackson, DT Gerald McCoy and LS Andrew Economos, took to center field for the coin toss. Joining them, in celebration of the Salute to Service Military Appreciation game this week, Lieutenant General John Mulholland.
Tampa Bay won the toss and have elected once again to defer. The San Diego Chargers will receive today’s opening kickoff.
Michael Koenen’s opening kick sailed over the head of San Diego KR Curtis Brinkley and out of the end zone for a touchback. The Chargers will take over at the 20-yard line.
