The Buccaneers defense has held the Jets to three points through the first 50 minutes of play, which leaves the end of their five-game losing streak in sight.

They’ll need to get to the finish line without the help of cornerback Vernon Hargreaves. Hargreaves is done for the rest of the day with a hamstring injury with the Bucs leading 9-3.

It was 3-3 at halftime, but Tampa was able to drive for a field goal to open the second half and then turned a Bilal Powell fumble into another Patrick Murray make.
