Bucs Vs. 49ers Halftime Score: Tampa Bay Leads 7-0 In Defensive Struggle

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are having an unexpectedly successful season. They are one of the 87 teams who are 6-3 and they have a real shot at a playoff berth under head coach Raheem Morris. They are halfway to another victory in San Francisco with a 7-0 lead in the third quarter.

They have limited the San Francisco 49ers to under 100 yards of total offense and have controlled the time of possession by keeping the ball on the ground with running backs LeGarrette Blount and Carnell “Cadillac” Williams, who’ve combined for 78 yards.

If the Bucs hang on to win, they will still be in the mix for the division title along with the current leader, the Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Saints. The unthinkable playoff appearance could come to fruition if the Bucs continue to beat the teams they should.

The Falcons lead the St. Louis Rams in their Week 11 game while the Saints are beating the Seattle Seahawks.
