Doug Martin ran the show for the Buccaneers, clocking up a total of 214 yards, 135 rushing and 79 receiving, in a superb exhibition to give Tampa an unfancied away win against the Vikings.

The form of Minnesota coming into the game suggested the Bucs would be up against it. That form book never materialized as Martin ripped the Viking defence apart on a regular basis also contributing with 2 touchdowns.

Josh Freeman was also at the heart of everything that was good about the Tampa performance, no turnovers, 3 touchdowns and 262 yards.
Christian Ponder who wasnt expected to start, did, however was picked off and sacked on 3 occasions. Adrian Foster who would have been in the thoughts of the Bucs coaching staff coming into the game, tried his best to get the home team back in the game with another 100 yard game finishing with 123 yards on 15 carries.
It was a celebration night for the Tampa fans, an away win that sees them move into 2nd in the NFC South, while the Vikings remain in 2nd in the NFC North.Dont forget to place your bets on 2BET2 for all your NFL Sunday action.
