Adrian McPherson threw for eight touchdowns and former Storm quarterback Brian Zbydniewski threw three picks in Tampa Bay's 69-47 win over Cleveland Saturday at the Forum.
Zbydniewski also had a critical fumbled snap in the fourth quarter. Two plays after McPherson coughed it up with the Gladiators within 49-41, Cleveland gave it right back.
Tampa Bay scored the next two touchdowns in the game for a 62-41 advantage, around Zybydniewski overthrowing a wide-open receiver in the end zone.
McPherson finished 25 of 38 for 362 yards and also ran for two touchdowns, the last a 14-yarder to provide the final margin.
Chris Smith had two of the Storm's interceptions. And 330-pound offensive lineman Alfred McCullough caught a 17-yard screen that put the Storm up 42-34.
Two key changes of events took place in the first half. Joe Hills -- who had 10 catches for 155 yards and three scores -- was stripped of the ball and Cleveland had it with a 13-7 lead ad the Tampa Bay 5. That's when Smith made his first pick.
Late in the half after going up 28-27 the Storm recovered an onsides kick, and made it 35-27 at the break on an 18-yard reception by Mike Lindsey with just seven seconds left.
