Bucs snap losing streak with 15-10 win over Jets

Halftime Report: Jets vs. Buccaneers

Halftime Report: Jets vs. Buccaneers

He won't win a lot of games on the field playing on a bad team, but this week McCown makes an excellent waiver wire addition in deep leagues.

The Jets have silenced their critics this season and have gone from a team expected to win very few if any football games this season to a group that has not only been competitive nearly every week but has pulled off some impressive wins including last Thursday's domination of the Buffalo Bills.

Despite finishing with 275 yards to Tampa Bay's 271, the Jets failed to move the ball with any consistency for more than three quarters.

One reason the Buccaneers were able to snap their five-game losing streak was because Charles Sims caught a six-yard touchdown pass from Fitzpatrick with six minutes left in the game.

On the other side was Josh McCown, who once the starting quarterback for Buccaneers in 2014.

With the score 15-10, the Jets needed to recover an onside kick for any hope to win the game. Then, after Grimes' interception, Fitzpatrick threw it back into the Jets' hands with a pick of his own. They will return to the field November 26 against the Carolina Panthers.

ABOUT THE JETS (4-5): Jordan Jenkins put forth a strong performance against the Bills, recording a pair of sacks - including one that forced a fumble. There was pressure on the quarterback, with six quarterback hits and one sack, but the secondary missed cornerback Morris Claiborne (sore right foot) in the second half. Tampa came into the season with high expectations as they brought in some big pieces for their offense and already had some game breakers on defense but things haven't gone to plan this season and now with Jameis Winston potentially out for the season and Evans out for this one they could be in trouble if the Jets defense is ready to feast.

The Bucs will start their three-game road stretch next week as they take on the Miami Dolphins.
