Buccaneers MVP. The Tru Beautè Med Spa Buccaneers MVP is

Tampa Bay’s 24-21 upset win at Detroit, there is a tie for the Tru Beaute`
Med Spa Bucs MVP for the second straight week with both wide receiver Tiquan Underwood and cornerback Leonard Johnson claiming the honors.
Underwood, a sixth-year player who has been previously cut by Tampa Bay twice, had a career game against the Lions, catching three passes for 108 yards and a career-high two touchdowns. The speedy 6-foot-2, 180-pound receiver showed some muscle in fending off cornerback Rashean Mathis for a 7-yard touchdown on a quick slant. Then in the fourth quarter, Underwood hauled in a career-long 85-yard touchdown to give Tampa Bay a 24-21 lead it would not relinquish.
Johnson, who has not had an interception all season after recording three last year as a rookie, stepped in front of Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew right before halftime and picked off quarterback Matthew Stafford. Johnson, who is playing nickel cornerback for the first time in his career, anticipated the throw, caught the ball in stride, juked Stafford and returned the ball 48 yards for a critical touchdown. That score gave the Bucs a 17-14 lead at halftime.
their efforts, Underwood and Johnson will receive a certificate for a
complimentary one-hour massage at Tru Beautè Med Spa in Tampa. WEEK 12 BUCCANEERS CO-MVP: WR TIQUAN UNDERWOOD – 3 rec., 108 yards, 2 TDs
