Blowout, or are the Bucs coming back?

Midway through the third quarter, the St. Louis Rams lead 28-13. This got out of hand fast. A completely blown coverage in cover 2 got the Rams an 80-yard touchdown on their first drive, and three plays later they got another interception. That one happened because of a bad route by Mike Williams, a great play by cornerback Trumaine Johnson, and a less-than-perfect throw by Josh Freeman.

But the Bucs aren't out of it yet, although it sure feels like it. A 61-yard Mike Williams touchdown turned it back into a two-score game. Williams weaved his way through a poor tackling secondary breaking several tackles before going into the endzone.

Can the Bucs get back in it, or will they get back to being awful?
