The Tampa Bay Buccaneers got ahead early and held on through a hard-fought fourth quarter to beat the Seattle Seahawks 21-16 in Week 10.

The win gives Tom Brady & Co. a massive boost to their playoff hopes. The 6-4 Seahawks will remain atop the NFC West until at least next week.

Offensive spotlight: Despite the result, Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith had himself yet another impressive game, going 23-of-33 for 275 yards and two scores. He added three big-time throws to his season total and picked up 114 yards from passes thrown 10 or more yards downfield.

If PFF's first-run grading holds, it will be yet another 80.0-plus PFF grade for the veteran quarterback.

Defensive spotlight: Bucs linebacker Devin White racked up six defensive stops against the Seahawks in Week 10, three against the run and three against the pass.

Rookie spotlight: Tariq Woolen was targeted six times in coverage today, and he gave up four catches for 57 yards and two touchdowns. However, the 23-year-old rookie was unsurprisingly able to beat 45-year-old Tom Brady to a jump ball on a trick play, which gifted him his fifth interception of the year.

Offensive line spotlight: Brady's offensive line held strong in this one, as they gave up just four hurries from 30 pass-blocking snaps on first review.
