Bucs rookie misses short FG, 2 extra points in narrow loss

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Tampa Bay's kicking woes cost the Buccaneers another game.

Rookie Matt Gay's 34-yard field goal attempt sailed right wide as time expired Sunday, leaving the Bucs on the short end of a 32-31 loss to the New York Giants. The sixth-round draft pick also missed an extra point and had another blocked.

"I've got to make that every single time," said Gay, who placed the blame on himself even though Tampa Bay's defense allowed Giants rookie quarterback Daniel Jones to lead four long touchdown drives - 75, 75, 80 and 75 yards - in his first start for New York.
