GAME REPORTS AND COMMENTS
Hurricane Georges kept me stuck in Clearwater watching the Bucs' loss on Monday night football to the Lions. Probably just as well I didn't fly up to the Motor City as this was a forgettable Buc performance all round. Trent threw a terrible interception, his first of the season, at the start of the second half and the Bucs had just six first downs and 133 total yards in the game.
