The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were the first team in Super Bowl LV to generate a turnover, with Antoine Winfield Jr. intercepting a tipped Patrick Mahomes pass in the third quarter. The Buccaneers are now leading the Kansas City Chiefs, 28-9.

Tampa Bay is now a 17.5-point favorite with -5000 odds on the Bucs' moneyline after the play.

Winning the turnover battle is essential to postseason success, and this is play has the Bucs in scoring position, looking to add to a 19-point lead.

If Tampa Bay can come away with a field goal or a touchdown here, it's really tough to envision the Chiefs climbing out of this hole. Of course, Patrick Mahomes is more than capable of erasing a lead of this magnitude, so fans will have to settle in for what could be a roller coaster of a fourth quarter.

His Chiefs did put up 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter of last year's Super Bowl, after all.
