Tampa Bay Buccaneers snap five game losing streak against New York Jets

He won't win a lot of games on the field playing on a bad team, but this week McCown makes an excellent waiver wire addition in deep leagues.

The Jets would tie the game before halftime, marching down the field 51 yards for a 47-yard field goal by Chandler Catanzaro.

"It's very ironic", the veteran told reporters of making his first start for Tampa Bay against the most recent of his six former clubs. It was the key to fending off the rally from McCown, who racked up over 100 passing yards and a touchdown after having just over 100 passing yards through three and a half quarters.

With 28 second remaining, all hope was lost when Chris Godwin recovered the onside kick handing the Jets another loss.

Overall, the Jets defense didn't get off the field quick enough; they gave up two scoring drives lasting 7:56 and 7:25. Tampa came into the season with high expectations as they brought in some big pieces for their offense and already had some game breakers on defense but things haven't gone to plan this season and now with Jameis Winston potentially out for the season and Evans out for this one they could be in trouble if the Jets defense is ready to feast.

Buccaneers: At Miami next Sunday, beginning stretch of three consecutive road games.
