The Bucs could have been within one, but Bucs kicker Connor Barth plunked one off the left upright, in what might best symbolize this game.
Matt Moore's playing OK, 8-of-14 for 61 yards and an interception (rating 38.1). They're not letting him do much, but he's taken a few errant shots downfield.
All in all, it's kind of a meh game, and there's another half to go.
