Quarterback Josh Freeman hit wide receiver Arrelious Benn for a 65-yard touchdown that will surely make it on any highlight video from week 6 in the NFL. Speaking of the highlight video, here is video of Benn’s second quarter catch.
Benn’s touchdown gave Tampa Bay a 10-7 lead over the New Orleans Saints. Benn has two catches for a total of 70 yards in the game so far. Tampa has a nearly five minute edge in time of possession over the Saints, a key to beating one of the league’s most prolific offenses.
Tampa Bay is looking to get their season on track after a blowout loss to the red hot San Francisco 49ers last week. Last year Josh Freeman and the Buccaneers gave the league a mild surprise with successful, inspired play from a team used to struggling. Things have been more mixed this season.
Prior to this game, Benn had just 12 receptions on the season for 160 yards and one touchdown.
