Defense and special teams scores were keys to a third consecutive victory.  Adam Hayward had a blocked punt return score and Leonard Johnson added a 83-yard interception return to put the Bucs out of range early in the fourth quarter.    "We didn't quite have our fastball today," said Greg Schiano, whose team became only the fifth in franchise history to score touchdowns on offense, defense and special teams in the same game.
