In a game shown live on British TV, the Bills jumped out to an early 17-0 lead and then were able to withstand the Bucs’ attempts to claw their way back into contention as Byron Leftwich’s near 300-yard game was countered by his two early crucial interceptions.  The defense also allowed Fred Jackson to rush for 163 yards and they gave up over 200 on the ground in all.  "You can't win in this league if you can't stop the run," Barrett Ruud said.  The Bucs were also penalised 13 times including no less that four face-mask penalties as they fell to 0-2 on the season.  Leftwich did throw three touchdown passes but the early hole that the team just left them too much to do later in the game.
