Dallas Clark puts the Bucs up against his old QB

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have taken the lead against the Denver Broncos. They've managed ten points out of three offensive drives, while the Denver Broncos took seven points from their two drives. Tampa Bay actually managed a three-and-out with their mangled secondary against Peyton Manning on the second defensive series.

The Bucs are pounding the Denver defense on the ground and through the air. Doug Martin has 57 yards from scrimmage already, and the big play on the last drive was a 40-yard pass to Mike Williams. As they've done repeatedly this season, the Bucs managed to beat the opposing secondary deep, setting up an 11-yard Dallas Clark touchdown. Clark, of course, spent the first nine years of his career catching passes from Peyton Manning. But Josh Freeman's feeding him the ball just fine, as he now has four touchdowns on the season.

The Bucs lead 10-7, but can their pass defense hold up against one of the best quarterbacks in the league?
