Garo Yepremian's 32-yard fieldgoal was blocked by Alan Page with 40 seconds remaining and hence cost the Bucs a final victory.

Doug Williams threw for over 300 yards for the fourth time this season, 138 of them to rookie Kevin House who finished the season in tremendous form.

But again turnovers killed the Bucs, three fumbles being lost in Bear territory, two of them by Tampa receivers when in fieldgoal range.
