TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- With rookie Doug Martin running wild and Josh Freeman re-establishing himself as one of the NFL's up and coming quarterbacks, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are lighting up the scoreboard like never before.

A team that traditionally has been known for playing stingy defense and embracing low-scoring matchups has gone offensive, averaging 477 yards and nearly 38 points over the past four games.

The Bucs (4-4) have won three of those contests to climb to .500 midway through their first season under coach Greg Schiano, including Sunday's 42-32 win over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

Martin rushed for a club-record 251 yards and four touchdowns to overshadow another strong performance by Freeman, who's thrown for 11 TDs and just one interception during the surge.
