The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have taken a lead into the final minute of regulation in each of their first two games this season. They are 0-2 for their efforts.
It's been that kind of start for Greg Schiano's team, which lost a 16-14 heartbreaker to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday in Tampa. Garrett Hartley kicked a 27-yard field goal for the Saints as time expired, just minutes after Bucs counterpart Rian Lindell missed a 47-yard attempt that would have given Tampa Bay a four-point lead with 1:10 to play.
The loss will obscure an otherwise impressive performance by the Bucs' defense, which consistently pressured Brees and kept the Saints' offense in check for most of the afternoon.
