The Buccaneers quickly moved into Raider territory on two Unnecessary Roughness penalties against Oakland. A short pass for five yards was turned into a 20-yard gain after a roughing the quarterback call. The next play saw RB Doug Martin take the handoff for 12 yards before Oakland was flagged for a horse-collar tackle which set up the Buccaneers at the Raider 43-yard line.
An immediate 11-yard pass from QB Josh Freeman to FB Erik Lorig put the ball in field goal territory. Then, on a third-and-three, Freeman found WR Mike Williams who made his first catch of the day, getting the first.
The Raiders were able to make the stop on the next set of downs, setting up the Connor Barth 35-yard field goal attempt. The Raider rush penetrated and Lamarr Houston was able to get a hand on the kick, before picking up the ball and returning it all the way out to the Tampa Bay 44-yard line.
