Very few things went right for Tampa Bay’s offense during its 31-14 loss to the New Orleans Saints Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.
But there was one bright spot. Bucs wide receiver Joey Galloway helped the Bucs offense end their dreadful streak of being held out of the end zone for 10 straight quarters by hauling in four passes for 97 yards and scoring two touchdowns on Sunday.
Both of Galloway’s touchdown grabs came in the second quarter against Saints cornerback Fred Thomas, whom he has now scored six touchdowns against over their past three meetings.
Unfortunately for the Bucs, Galloway proved to be Tampa Bay’s only offense of the game with his 44-yard and 27-yard touchdown receptions from rookie quarterback Bruce Gradkowski. The Bucs offensed produced just 226 yards on Sunday.
Galloway now has a team-leading 29 catches for 475 yards and four touchdowns through eight regular season games this season.
He’s been Tampa Bay’s offensive MVP this season, and Galloway’s performance on Sunday was enough to earn him Pewter Report MVP honors.
