Cardinals vs. Buccaneers Score Update: Buccaneers lead 10-0 at halftime

New, comments

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are leading the Arizona Cardinals in a close defensive contest, a Mike Williams touchdown catch making the difference.

The Bucs are outplaying the Cardinals by quite a bit this game, on both sides of the ball.

The Arizona Cardinals are stacking the box and blitzing on every play, forcing Mike Glennon to beat them. With Doug Martin rushing for just 27 yards on 16 attempts, Glennon has found himself in a lot of long-yardage situations and has not managed to convert many. Glennon is currently 15/24 for 87 yards and one touchdown, which was set up by a Rashard Mendenhall fumble. Glennon finished the half with an outstanding two-minute drive to get the Buccaneers three points, however.

The Arizona Cardinals are spinning their wheels on offense too, however, with Palmer managing just 54 yards in the first half. The Bucs offense is dominating and if they can keep that up, the Bucs are looking at their first win of the season. Gerald McCoy is leading that charge with s sack, a pass defensed and a fumble recovery.
