A decisive win that took the Bucs to 9-3, the best record in the NFC. Ricky Bell had 100 yards in the first half alone and two Doug Williams to Larry Mucker strikes were the aerial part of the Buc attack.

Cecil Johnson forced a fumble that David Lewis returned for a score, as the defense held their opponents without a touchdown for the third time that season.
