Buccaneers running back Mike James pulls off a rare jump pass for touchdown

The Buccaneers' third touchdown against Seattle wasn't pretty, but it was awesome.

Tampa Bay was down at the 2-yard line when they called a tricky play. The Buccaneers handed off up the middle to Mike James. It looked like a normal dive play, until James channeled Tim Tebow and stopped to throw a jump pass.

James jumped straight up right before he got to the line and pushed a pass in the direction of tight end Tom Crabtree, who was on his butt in the end zone when James jumped. The pass didn't have much rotation to it, and floated toward Crabtree. Crabtree sprung up and grabbed the pass for a touchdown. That gave the Buccaneers a shocking 21-0 lead.

Tampa Bay hasn't been very good this season, but that play was great.
