Overtime proved elusive for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and painful for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Thats the Week 7 Florida NFL roundup in a nutshell.
The Bucs lost to the New Orleans Saints 35-28 after appearing to have scored a game-tying touchdown as time expired.
Unfortunately for Tampa Bay, receiver Mike Williams was pushed out of bounds before re-entering the end zone to catch what would have been a game-tying score.
The Jags lost a 26-23 OT decision and two key starters at Oakland.
Running back Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) and quarterback Blaine Gabbert (non-throwing shoulder) both exited with first-half injuries.
Jones-Drew has been ruled out for this weeks game at Green Bay and could be sidelined longer. Gabbert might be able to play against the Packers.
The Miami Dolphins didnt lose a game or any players they were on their bye week.

I picked the Buccaneers last week, so obviously I was pissed about that. That and Vincent Jackson going for [...]

The Tampa Bay Offense. The Saints won? Oh right, like you had any doubt. You expect the New Orleans offense to fire on all cylinders. Tampa Bay on the other hand, not so much. Free Agent acquisition Vincent Jackson goes for 216...
