Rookie Doug Martin looked really good and so did LeGarrette Blount. Martin ran for 21 yards and a touchdown with Blount going 30 yards and a touchdown. Deciding on a starter will be a tough decision if they both keep playing so well.
Quarterback Josh Freeman did not throw a touchdown or interception and looked to be getting back to his old form. He was 4/5 for 41 yards.
Rookie Mark Barron did not play in the first game due to a sore toe but should be good to go this Friday when the Bucs face the Tennessee Titans at home.
The breakout star at training camp and that night was Tiquan Underwood. He had three catches for 76 yards. Coach Schiano said the key for Underwood to make the team is consistency.
Coach Schiano said that the team played hard but were to many mistakes.
