The Bucs only ever tie came courtesy of Green Bay kicker Tom Birney who missed a 24-yard FG with 1:05 remaining in regulation, and a 36-yarder as time expired in overtime.   Lynn Dickey set an opposition passing record against the Bucs by throwing for 418 yards, three different receivers gaining over 100 yards.   But the interception that he threw to Richard "Batman" Wood proved decisive as the Bucs' linebacker returned it 55 yards for a score.
