If that is the case, the Buccaneers will turn to
With Josh McCown going down in the second quarter, Glennon got a chance to show what he could do. Glennon entered down 35 points, however, so it was basically a lost performance. He completed 17 of 24 attempts, picking up 121 yards and a score. Glennon managed to pick up his only touchdown in the final quarter. With the Bucs trailing 56-0, he found Vincent Jackson on a 3 yard strike.
McCown was awful before being pulled from the game. It's unclear if the team will consider starting Glennon even if McCown proves to be healthy enough to play.
Tampa will take on the Steelers Week 4.
Glennon relieved McCown in the second quarter and compiled 77 yards through the air while completing 6 of 12 passes. 43 of those 77 yards came on a short pass to Mike Evans. Evans bounced off a tackler and took it 43 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. Unfortunately for Glennon, Evans fumbled the ball before crossing the end zone, and had the touchdown overturned after a replay by the officials.
Glennon was sacked twice and finished with a 70.5 passer rating.
Glennon hooked up with Tommy Streeter for a 6-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. He completed 11 of 19 pass attempts for 140 yards, with one touchdown and no interceptions.
"The three things — and [coach Lovie [Smith] and I were in complete agreement on this — are toughness, intelligence and accuracy," general manager Jason Licht said on Sirius XM NFL Radio. "And then arm strength is a distant fourth.
“Mike showed during this process that he has those three things and he scored very high on those three things. Also, he’s an unassuming type of guy but guys around the building really look up to him and really follow him. So that’s what it came down to."
Glennon threw 19 touchdown passes and nine interceptions as a rookie.
