There were errors and a few ugly reads, but Glennon's best quality was evident: He isn't afraid to get rid of the ball. Glennon rolled away from the rush, checked down to second and third options and capably built a 10-0 halftime lead before throwing it away with two interceptions in the final four minutes.
Here's what else we learned:
1. Glennon's best friend -- for three quarters -- was Tampa Bay's stingy defense. Lavonte David and Mason Foster are two of the NFL's better coverage linebackers, and the Bucs' loaded secondary was stellar before losing safety Mark Barron to injury.
2. For three quarters, Darrelle Revis won his battle with Larry Fitzgerald, who went into halftime without a catch. Revis didn't key on Fitzgerald exclusively -- sometimes pushing him into zone coverage -- but their matchup should be a Game Rewind sensation this week. Revis had a pick on a pass intended for Fitzgerald, but the All-Pro wideout roared back with six catches and the game's key touchdown.
3. Nice win by the Cardinals, but their offensive line is a problem. The Bucs were held to one sack but controlled the line of scrimmage. Carson Palmer is a dead man walking until offensive tackle Levi Brown and friends get this fixed.
5. More trouble for Bucs safety Dashon Goldson:

Insult to insult: Bucs blowing it late at home, Goldson just flagged for hitting helmet-to-helmet. That could be suspension.â Rich Eisen (@richeisen) September 29, 2013
