Jaguars Thrash Buccaneers in Final Preseason Match

TAMPA, Fla. (FNN SPORTS) – The Buccaneers hosted the Jacksonville Jaguars at Raymond James Stadium with a much scantier audience than last home game. In this final game before the season begins, neither team is using their starters, reserving them for next week. The Jags started with Cody Kessler at quarterback while the Bucs led with Ryan Griffin.

 

FIRST HALF

The Jags spent the early part of the first quarter stopping the Bucs run, causing the Bucs to lose yards in three plays in their first and second scoring series.

For the Buccaneers’ part, defensive tackle Nathan Bazata sacked Kessler in the first seven minutes of the first quarter.

The Jaguars were able to get on the board in the final minute of the first quarter with seven-play, 31-yard scoring series, ending in Josh Lambo’s 51-yard field goal, making the score 3-0 at the end of the first.

Six minutes into the second quarter, the Bucs finally got on the board with Griffin’s two-yard touchdown pass to Justin Watson, bringing the score to 7-3.

With 3:44 left in the second quarter, the Bucs made sure to score again, this time with Chandler Catanzaro’s 31-yard field goal, jumping to 10-3.

Neither team scored again in the first half.

 

SECOND HALF

At 9:46 in the third quarter, the Jags scored their first touchdown with Tim Cook’s three-yard carry. Their two-point conversion attempt failed, but despite that, they narrowed the Bucs’ lead to one point: 10-9.

Six minutes into the third quarter, on the Bucs’ third down, the Jags swamped QB Austin Allen, causing a fumble, which Jags’ Phillips recovered and carried for a second touchdown, bringing the score to 15-10. They attempted another two-point conversion, but failed again.

When the Bucs got the ball back, Allen was sacked for a ten-yard loss on the second down.

The Jags had a close call with less than three left in the third with a pass to Montay Crockett, who ran it another nine yards to the one-yard line and rolled into the end zone on a double-tackle. However, after play review, the play was ruled as a complete pass to first and one instead of a touchdown pass. The Jags then attempted to run the ball in, but the Bucs blocked on the next two downs.

On their next down, the Jags had a false start, causing them to back up five yards, but they made for it, scoring their third touchdown with ten seconds left in the third quarter, bringing the score to 22-10.

On the Bucs’ first scoring series in the fourth quarter, Allen was sacked again for a loss of eight yards.

The Jags scored on the Bucs once more with a field goal five minutes into the fourth, bringing the score to 25-10.

On the Bucs’ next drive, the Jags intercepted the ball at the Jags’ 40-yard line. They didn’t score anymore though, making the final score 25-10, Jaguars.

The Buccaneers open the season against New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome Sunday September 9, 2018 at 1pm while the Jaguars play the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium on the same day and time.
