Bucs go up 24-10 with sensational TD catch

Posted Sep 2, 2010

The Bucs extended their lead to 24-10 with 7:28 left in the fourth quarter. Here's how it happened:

The drive: 6 plays, 90 yards, 3:18. Ended with a 21-yard touchdown pass from Rudy Carpenter to Arrelious Benn. Connor Barth made the extra point.

The score: On first-and-10 from the Texans' 21-yard line, Carpenter lobbed a deep pass to the left for Benn. With Jacques Reeves in tight coverage, Benn made a sensational grab, seemingly prying the ball off Reeves' helmet with one arm, for the score.

The set-up: Carpenter started the drive off with two passes for 50 yards, one to wide receiver Preston Parker and one to tight end Ryan Purvis. Those plays were sandwiched around a five-yard neutral zone infraction penalty on DelJuan Robinson. Robinson, who also stuffed running back Clifton Smith for a two-yard loss on the drive. Carpenter also had a 16-yard pass to Parker one play before the touchdown.

The big play: Carpenter to Parker for 29 yards on the first play of the drive. It was a deep pass to the left sideline. Reeves was in coverage.
