TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren't taking solace in giving the NFC-best Seattle Seahawks one of their toughest games of the season.

The reality is the Bucs (0-8) found yet another way to lose Sunday, blowing a three-touchdown lead and wasting an efficient performance by rookie quarterback Mike Glennon in a 27-24 overtime loss on the road.

Tampa Bay has led four games in the fourth quarter and lost all of them in the final 89 seconds of regulation or overtime, falling to 0-7 in games decided by three points or less under embattled second-year coach Greg Schiano.

That made for a long, cross-country flight home, one that provided lots of time to watch tape of the game and mull over another missed opportunity.
