Tampa Bay Buccaneers 17, New York Jets 18
Geno Smith wins his first NFL start, basically clinching the starting job for the rest of the season. He ends with a QBR of 48.5 throwing a touchdown and an interception. I was not impressed completely with his play the whole game, but in the 4th quarter he stepped his game up completing 7 of 11 passes for 83 yards.
I am not sold on Geno, but there might be light at the end of the tunnel in New York. Tampa Bay was horrible and I feel for Bucs fans everywhere. It looks like they are in for a long ride. The Jets did come away with a win, but against a poor Tampa Bay team. Tampa Bay didn’t look good on all three phases of the game. Lets not forget, if it wasn’t for that late penalty the Buccaneers would have won this football game.
What you can’t take too seriously: The Jets wouldn’t have won this game if it wasn’t for a mental mistake by Lavonte David.
What you can take away from this game: There is hope in New York, but minimal.
