Bucs quick hits

By Compiled by ERNEST HOOPER

© St. Petersburg Times, published September 18, 2000

Shaun King's 6-yard touchdown run in the first quarter was the Bucs' first in the opening period since Donnie Abraham returned a Jeff George interception 55 yards against the Vikings in Week 13 last season. It was the Bucs' first offensive touchdown in the first quarter since Jacquez Green caught a 62-yard pass from Trent Dilfer in Week 9 against New Orleans last season.

King has not thrown an interception this season. This is the fourth time in team history a quarterback has done so. The other quarterbacks to accomplish that feat were Dilfer in '98, Craig Erickson in '94 and Vinny Testaverde in '92.

The Bucs have seven rushing touchdowns through three games. They had seven last season.

Of Keyshawn Johnson's 14 receptions, 12 have gone for first downs, including the 38-yarder against Detroit. Johnson's first nine receptions as a Buc all went for first downs, including one touchdown.

The Bucs' 21 first-half points were the most they scored in a first half since a 28-point effort against Cincinnati in the 1998 season finale.

John Lynch's fourth-quarter interception was the Bucs' first against Detroit quarterback Charlie Batch. Batch also suffered his first loss in four starts against Tampa Bay.
