Close Losses Adding Up for Inconsistent Bucs

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are running out of explanations for their inability to win close games.

The Bucs (2-4) fell short again Sunday, falling 35-28 to the New Orleans Saints after nearly scoring the tying touchdown on the final two plays of the game.

Josh Freeman had a career day passing, however his effort to get his team into overtime ended in disappointment when his third-down throw was grabbed by a leaping receiver who landed out of bounds and a fourth-down attempt was caught in the end zone only to be nullified by a penalty for illegal touching.

After four losses by a total of 22 points, coach Greg Schiano and his players are growing weary of questions about what it'll take to get over the hump.
