He was whistled for an illegal forward pass on the next play, but the mistakes were erased by his second touchdown pass to Brate on third-and-11 for a 20-17 lead with 6:02 left in regulation.

Bucs running back Peyton Barber had 23 carries for 102 yards and four catches for 41 yards. But the defense couldn't hold up in overtime for the last-place Buccaneers (4-8).
