CINCINNATI -- Carson Palmer's third interception gave Tampa Bay one last chance, and Connor Barth kicked a 31-yard field goal with 1 second left, sending the upstart Buccaneers to a 24-21 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Second-year quarterback Josh Freeman set up the winning kick with a sensational pass, hitting Micheal Spurlock along the sideline for a 21-yard completion to the 13. Spurlock kept both toes inbound for a falling-down catch that was upheld on review.

It was a signature win for young Tampa Bay (3-1), which hadn't beaten a contender. With Freeman leading the way, the Buccaneers took down the defending AFC North champions.

The Bengals (2-3) had a chance for a go-ahead field goal, but Palmer's tipped pass went to safety Sabby Piscitelli, setting up Tampa Bay's winning kick.
