Aqib Talib's interceptions help Bucs beat Arizona 38-35Posted: Updated:
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Aqib Talib intercepted two passes, returning one 45 yards for a touchdown and saving the game with the other, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers rallied from a fourth-quarter deficit for the fourth time this season to beat the Arizona Cardinals 38-35.
The Bucs (5-2) won their fifth consecutive game on the road dating to last season and moved into a tie with idle Atlanta for first in the NFC South.
Derek Anderson, who replaced Max Hall after the Cardinals rookie had two early interceptions returned for scores, rallied Arizona (3-4) from a 17-point deficit to take a 35-31 lead with 9:41 to play.
Josh Freeman's 45-yard pass to rookie Arrelious Benn set up LaGarrette Blount's 1-yard run for what proved to be the winning score with 5:13 to play.
