Found November 27, 2011 on Shutdown Corner:
There were way more ugly plays than pretty plays in Sunday's Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Tennessee Titans game. Because we're nice people, here's one of the pretty ones. The set-up and handoff are by Marc Mariani, a second-round receiver out of Montana. The touchdown and the ridiculous speed are by Tommie Campbell, a rookie defensive back and former California University of Pennsylvania Vulcan. Outside of that, the game was largely a mess. The Titans made some clutch plays down the stretch to get the win, but also turned the ball over four times -- two interceptions and two fumbles. The good news was that the Bucs turned it over five times. One interception by Josh Freeman, and four lost fumbles. The win keeps the Titans two games back of the Houston Texans in the AFC South, which is significant, because it looks like the Texans will be playing the rest of the season with T.J. Yates as their quarterback. The AFC South has still not been won.

For the Bucs, it's about finishing

One of Bucs coach Raheem Morris' biggest points of emphasis this season was finishing games.

But one of the main problems for the Bucs (4-7) this year has been finishing, with Morris saying they've had three games this year where...
