Instant Analysis: Bucs hang on for a crucial win vs. Jets

Josh McCown, also facing one of his former teams, was 23 of 39 for 263 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Ryan Fitzpatrick didn't get a lot of wins in games involving the Jets while playing for them during the 2016 season, but he got one playing against them this Sunday.

The 34-year-old Fitzpatrick, one of just four players in National Football League history to throw TD passes for seven different teams, led a seven-minute drive that produced a field goal in the first quarter.

They were able to generate pressure, getting a season-high six sacks from newcomers Will Clarke and Darryl Tapp and Robert Ayers, Gerald McCoy, Clinton McDonald and linebacker Kendell Beckwith, whose role standing up at the line of scrimmage - something the Bucs unveiled against the Buffalo Bills - is starting to make an impact.

The Jets would tie the game before halftime, marching down the field 51 yards for a 47-yard field goal by Chandler Catanzaro. Since his first game against the Arizona Cardinals, Murray has converted all five of his extra point attempts and made four field goals in five attempts, two of which were from 50 yards. His lone touchdown came on a screen pass to Charles Sims.

Stabbing at Mall of America, suspect arrested
One of those men was also stabbed before they were able to disarm the suspect, police said during a media briefing Sunday evening. At least two people were reportedly stabbed at the first floor Macy's in the Mall of America in Minnesota Sunday night.

With the score 15-10, the Jets needed to recover an onside kick for any hope to win the game.

Brent Grimes celebrates an interception. Overall, the Jets defense didn't get off the field quick enough; they gave up two scoring drives lasting 7:56 and 7:25.

Lavonte David led the Bucs with eight tackles, two tackles for a loss and a fumble recovery against the Jets. There was pressure on the quarterback, with six quarterback hits and one sack, but the secondary missed cornerback Morris Claiborne (sore right foot) in the second half.

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