Seattle Doubled Up By Tampa Bay, 20-10

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA BAY, Fla. -- Jeff Garcia was a Pro Bowl quarterback last
season. He played like one again Sunday night.
      Garcia completed 26 of 37 passes for 310 yards, including a
47-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Bryant on Tampa Bay's opening
drive, and the Buccaneers beat the struggling Seattle Seahawks
20-10 on Sunday night.
      Making his second straight start in place of Brian Griese,
Garcia helped the NFC South-leading Bucs (5-2) improve to 4-0 at
      Garcia clearly outplayed fellow backup-turned-starter Seneca
Wallace, the Seahawks' third quarterback in three weeks. Garcia was
14-of-17 by halftime, helping the Bucs take a 17-0 lead, and the
outcome wasn't ever in doubt.
      Wallace, meanwhile, never got rolling. He finished 12-of-23 for
73 yards, with a 2-yard touchdown pass to John Carlson with 1:55
left, and had two turnovers in the second quarter. Maurice Morris
ran for 56 yards for Seattle (1-5) in its third straight loss.
