Somewhere, Tim Tebow is smiling.

The Buccaneers put together a first half that nobody saw coming in Seattle on Sunday. After scoring twice and then recovering a Seahawks fumble on a kickoff return, the Bucs were in position to do damage on first-and-goal.

So what came next? How about a jump pass? That's right, quarterback Mike Glennon handed the ball off to Mike James, who then took a step forward, leaped in the air and floated the ball to Tom Crabtree in the end zone.

Touchdown, Tampa Bay!

Consider this: The Buccaneers came into this game having scored just nine offensive touchdowns all season. They scored three in the first half alone to take an amazing 21-0 lead.

Of course, that ended up being irrelevant as the Seahawks came roaring back in the second half and won 27-24 in overtime.
