The Bucs were undone by six turnovers including four lost fumbles. John McKay's take on the game:" Joe Namath is still Joe Namath, but I thought our guys were nice to him.

I notice when they knocked him down, they helped him to his feet. That was gentlemanly. I thought one stood around long enough to get his autograph."
