Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman led the Bucs to a 10-7 halftime lead over the Denver Broncos. Freeman is 8-for-16 with 121 yards passing and one touchdown, he also has one rush for two yards.
After failing to throw a touchdown for the first time this season last week, Freeman found Dallas Clark in the end zone at the end of the first quarter to put the Bucs ahead. Freeman's top receiver has been Mike Williams, who has three receptions for 46 yards.
Freeman had been on fire prior to his zero touchdown performance last week. In the previous six weeks he had thrown for multiple touchdowns each game. The Broncos defense has proved a challenge for Freeman, limiting him to a 50% completion percentage.
Freeman will have to improve his stats in the second half if the Bucs hope to win this game. The Broncos have taken a 14-10 lead in the third quarter.
