All Defense in the First Quarter

The Buccaneers have done it again.

Neither offense has been able to get anything going so far in the game. Each team has converted one first down. The Buccaneers have gained the most yardage: 20 to -6.

The Eagles first down came on a 10-yard pass from QB Nick Foles to WR Riley Cooper. However, on the next set of downs the Buccaneer defense swarmed again, forcing lost yardage and another punt.

After a first down incompletion, Gerald McCoy corralled Eagles RB Bryce Brown for a gain of one off the left tackle. On third-and-long the Buccaneers recorded their second sack of the day as DE Michael Bennett pulled down Foles 10 yards behind the line of scrimmage, his eighth of the season.

The Buccaneers will start their third drive of the game from the 39-yard line.
