Peyton Manning can't be held down, takes 14-10 lead

Well, that was just a matter of time. The Tampa Bay defense has been surprisingly stout this game, but it broke on this latest defensive drive as Peyton Manning found Demaryius Thomas in the endzone to take the lead, 14-10.

Undrafted rookie cornerback Leonard Johnson was beat repeatedly on that drive, which should be no surprise. He's a mismatch for Demaryius Thomas, and so is everyone else on the roster. The Bucs can't keep Peyton Manning down forever, and they need to find a way to score points themselves.
