The Seattle Seahawks began Sunday in a deep slumber. They woke up just in time to stave off embarrassment.
Here's what else we took away from the game:
- Looking for silver linings for the Bucs? Mike Glennon had his moments, including a 20-yard touchdown pass to Tiquan Underwood that showed some nice footwork and touch. Running back Mike Jones rushed for a season-high 158 yards and threw a Tebow-style touchdown pass. Doug Martin never looked that good when healthy this season. Safety Mark Barron was all over the field.
- The Bucs' offense went into a shell in the second half after looking genuinely frisky over the first two quarters. You're not going to run away and hide when playing at CenturyLink Field, and Greg Schiano should have known that. The events of Sunday don't help Schiano's chances of making it to January.
- Seattle has given up 398 yards on the ground in the past two weeks. Run defense is the weak link in an otherwise stout defense.
