NFL Scores Week 14, Buccaneers Vs. Jaguars: Jacksonville Stomps In-State Rival, 41-14

Jacksonville preyed on the turnover-prone Buccaneers to claim a measure of superiority in the Sunshine State.


VIDEO: Nate Collins Recovers Josh Freeman Fumble For A Touchdown

It’s a thrilling battle of competence in Jacksonville, where the Jaguars are looking for their first win of the post Jack Del Rio era. Right now, they lead the disappointing Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a score of 21-14. Two of Jacksonville’s touchdowns have come from fumble recoveries.

Tight end Colin Cloherty recovered a fumble on a Tampa Bay return that he turnaround for an 8-yard touchdown. The Jaguars struck again later in the second quarter when defensive tackle Nate Collins recovered a Josh Freeman fumble in the end zone.

Check out the video of Collins’ fumble return right here.

Linebacker Daryl Smith forced Freeman’s fumble. The Bucs quarterback is struggling after his team took a 14-0 lead. Following Collins’ touchdown, Freeman was picked off by Tampa Bay on the next drive.

Jacksonville used three second quarter touchdowns, the two turnovers and a Maurice Jones-Drew rushing touchdown, to erase Tampa’s lead and go up by seven of their own.


VIDEO: Josh Freeman Touchdown Run Doubles Bucs Lead

Don’t look now, but here come the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After scoring a first quarter touchdown run by LeGarrette Blount, the team’s first offensive touchdown in the first quarter all season, Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman added a touchdown of his own on a 13-yard scramble through the middle.

Check out Freeman’s scoring run in this video:

That was Freeman’s third rushing touchdown of the season.


Tampa Bay Buccaneers Score First Quarter Touchdown For First Time In 2011 NFL Season

Remember when Josh Freeman was leading an up-and-coming Buccaneers team that had a go-to running back in LeGarrette Blount, a bunch of young receivers and a coach on the rise in Raheem Morris? That myth has been dispelled in the 2011 NFL season, as the Bucs have struggled to score all year, especially early.

They finally got their first touchdown in the first quarter of the season this Sunday against the Jaguars, according to the St. Petersburg Times' Rick Stroud, and did it the hard way:

Bucs record their first offensive touchdown in the first quarter this season by going 80-yards, converting on two third downs and 4th-and1

Good news for Tampa Bay: more play like that and the 4-8 Bucs might just get back to .500 on the season! Of course, not every opponent can be the equally moribund Jaguars.
