And then it began to turn around for Raheem Morris’ team.  After a four-game losing streak took their record to 1-11, the Bucs gave up an early score on the road in Seattle and then hit back with 24 unanswered points and a road victory that surprised many around the NFL.   The defense forced four inteceptions and allowed a balanced offense to take it from there. "(Committing to) the run really helped," said Josh Freeman, who bounced back from two shaky outings and a shaky start. “We were running the ball so well that they had the end crashing down on us every time. You really have to take your hat off to the line and the backs because we were running so well."
