Bucs quick hits

By Compiled by ERNEST HOOPER and ALEX LYNCH

-- The Bucs certainly still have a chance to make the Super Bowl, but losing at home does not bode well. Since 1996, Super Bowl teams have lost only two home games and that was in '96, when the Patriots lost twice at Foxboro Stadium.

-- With Ronde Barber's 37-yard interception return for a touchdown, the Bucs defense has forced 11 turnovers leading to 38 points.

-- Mike Alstott moved into second place on the Bucs' all-time rushing list with 3,090 yards. James Wilder had 5,957 in eight seasons.

-- Shaun King threw his first two interceptions. He also fumbled on the Bucs' last offensive play. Before Sunday, the Bucs had no turnovers. King had made 85 attempts without a pick.

-- Dave Moore had his first touchdown reception of the season. He led the team with five in 1999.

-- The Jets' 81-yard drive that set up John Hall's 27-yard field goal was the longest scoring drive given up by the Bucs this season.

-- Curtis Martin's fourth quarter, 6-yard reception was the first red zone touchdown given up by the Bucs this season. His 18-yard touchdown pass was the second.
