TAMPA (FootballStL) -- Coming off his third 300-yard passing game in 2012, Sam Bradford completed just 50 percent of his passes for 96 yards and a touchdown in the first half against the Buccaneers on Sunday.

The first half was miserable for Bradford after he threw an interception in the Buccaneers end zone to a heavily-covered Danny Amendola.  It appeared to be “that kind of game” for Bradford at Rams at the time.

Janoris Jenkins bailed out the anemic Rams offense with a 41-yard interception returned for a touchdown to give the Rams a 7-3 lead early in the second quarter.  The Rams would score another touchdown before the end of the half on a touchdown from Steven Jackson.

Bradford finished the half 8-for-16 passing with 96 yards and an interception thrown.

On the first offensive play in the second half, Bradford connected with Kendricks down the middle for an 80-yard touchdown and led 21-6.

Bradford would throw another touchdown a short time late to Austin Pettis for a 28-6 lead in the third quarter.

His finishing numbers were not that attractive though.  He completed 13-of-27 passes for 196 yards.

If you wipe away the 80-yard touchdown pass, Bradford only threw 116 yards which is not impressive no matter how you look at.
