Tampa Bay just got a second FG from Connor Barth (the former UNC kicker) to cut Carolina's lead to 10-6 midway through the second quarter.
The Bucs could have tied the game when Josh Freeman threw a beautiful deep ball to TE Kellen Winslow on third-and-18 from the 28. Winslow had his hands on the ball in the end zone. But, while single-covered by Charles Godfrey, he couldn't pull it in. Godfrey got his left hand in there to break it up.
That left Tampa with the field goal and a 10-6 deficit. The turnover that set that field goal up? Matt Moore's first interception of the day. Will there be more?
