COMMENTARY CREW Tim Ryan and Johnny Morris
And then it was five. The Bucs had the best record in the NFL thanks to a 54-yard, 10-play drive in the fourth quarter that ended with Doug Williams 8-yard scoring pass to Isaac Hagins with 5:07 remaining.  Interceptions by Jeris White and Cedric Brown stopped the final two Chicago drives to secure a win that proved decisive in tie-breaker scenarios at the end of the season.
