Jets vs Buccaneers Second Half Thread

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New York Jets Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

The first half of the New York Jets game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is in the books, and the Jets are leading the Buccaneers 17 - 10.

The Jets began the game on offense and quickly took the lead. A 57 yard run by Michael Carter got the Jets offense going early and Braxton Berrios finished off the opening drive with a one yard touchdown run and an early 7 - 0 lead.

The Buccaneers answered with a long, methodical touchdown drive to even the score at 7 - 7.

The Jets immediately responded with a long, methodical drive of their won, culminating in another Braxton Berrios touchdown and a surprising 14 - 7 lead early in the 2nd quarter.

The Buccaneers struck back with a field goal drive, cutting the Jets lead to 14 - 10 as neither defense was able to stop the opposing offense from scoring in the early going.

The defenses then settled down and the teams exchanged a few punts as the 2nd quarter wound down. The Buccaneers got the ball with about a minute left, but the Jets intercepted a Tom Brady pass and returned it to midfield. A couple of plays later the Jets kicked a field goal to take a wildly unlikely 17 - 10 lead into the locker room.

Enjoy the second half everyone.
