The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are dominating the Philadelphia Eagles after one half, leading 28-14.

Doug Martin is having the best game of his career, with 12 carries for 177 yards in the first  half, including an 84-yard run and a 58-yarder. Those two runs set up two Jameis Winston touchdowns to Mike Evans and Russell Shepard respectively. Vincent Jackson grabbed the Bucs' third touchdown after a drive that featured several big-time Winston throws, while the final touchdown went to Charles Sims on a two-minute drive.

Outside of one or two throws, Jameis Winston has looked outstanding, completing 13 of 18 passes for 147 yards and four touchdowns, with no turnovers and just one sack. He's gotten solid protection and is picking apart the Eagles, with Mike Evans, Vincent Jackson and Adam Humphries stepping up to help him out.

Meanwhile, the Bucs defense has been pretty good at stopping the Eagles but the high tempo is still giving the team problems, and a horrible display of tackling and some blatant holding gave the Eagles two touchdowns. Still, Lavonte David grabbed his first interception of the season at the end of the year and overall, the Bucs look like the best team by far.
