Tampa Falls Short in 24-23 Loss to Jags

Buccaneers quarterback Jeff Garcia picks himself up from the turf during the third quarter

The Buccaneers came up short yesterday at home as the Jacksonville Jaguars pulled out a 24-23 victory at Raymond James Stadium.  Bucs quarterback Jeff Garcia was picked off three times, including Aaron Glenn’s 28-yard interception return for a touchdown in the second quarter.  Michael Bennett scored his first touchdown in a Bucs uniform with a 19-yard run.  Joey Galloway hauled in six catches for 115 yards and a touchdown.  Jaguars quarterback Quinn Gray made his first NFL start and overcame a rocky beginning to throw an eight-yard touchdown pass to Matt Jones that gave the Jaguars the 24-23 lead in the fourth quarter.  The Bucs tried to drive down the field with less than a minute left, but Garcia was picked off by Reggie Nelson to end the game.  Jacksonville improved to 5-and-2 while the Bucs fell to 4-and-4.  Tampa Bay is home against Arizona next week.
