With 17 seconds to play Rayshaunstopped Amarri Jackson at the one-yard line on fourth-and-goal to give Orlando possession of the ball. But the clock ran out on the Preds following a 21-yard reception from Nick Hill to T.T. Toliver.

Orlando trailed 39-16 early in the third quarter before getting three straight defensive stops and clawing its way back into the game. Nick Hill connected with Robert Quiroga on an eight-yard touchdown following the first drive of the second half to begin the rally.

The Preds then turned the 13th interception of the season by Kizer into a touchdown pass from Nick Hill to Josh Bush early in the fourth before Toliver scored on a 29-yard pass reception with just over six minutes to play to make it 39-37.

Tampa replied with a touchdown of its own on the ensuing possession to keep the Preds at bay the reminder of the way.
