Broncos’ K Matt Prater connected on his first field goal of the night from 31-yards out to give Denver an 18-point lead.
On the drive, the Buccaneer defense was able to force the Broncos into two third-downs, but the offense managed to convert on both of them. TE Jacob Tamme continues to be Manning’s favorite target on the day as he moved up to 89 yards receiving.
Once the Broncos crossed into the red zone, the Buccaneer defense was able to make a stand. With a first down at the 16-yard line, the offense put up just four yards on one run and two incompletions.
The Buccaneers will start their drive at the 20 after another touchback with 7:41 left in the game.
