Buccaneers have lead at halftime
By Pat Yasinskas
DETROIT -- Consider this an upset alert out of Ford Field.
At halftime, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are leading the Detroit Lions 17-14. That lead came after cornerback Leonard Johnson picked off Matthew Stafford and returned the ball 48 yards for a touchdown with 50 seconds left in the first half.
The Bucs, who have yet to win on the road this season, have been playing well on defense. Gerald McCoy had pressure on Stafford on the interception and Darrelle Revis has been doing a nice job on Calvin Johnson.
Offensively, quarterback Mike Glennon led one nice touchdown drive. The Lions appear to be loading up to stop the run, so that means there’s room for Glennon and the passing game to do more in the second half.
I’ll be back with full coverage after the game.
