The Bucs' first-ever appearance on Monday Night Football was a disappointing one as they were shut out by the Bears at Soldier Field.

An apparent TD pass to Jimmie Giles was nullified by a penalty and a subsequent fieldgoal attempt was blocked ensuring the Bucs were kept off the scoreboard.

Walter Payton gained 122 of his 134 rushing yards in the second half and the four Bear sacks of Doug Williams were the most he had sustained in a single game.
