Scott Hutchinson only played one season for the Bucs, but the back-up DE made the play of the game when he deflected Mick Luckhurst's 45-yard fieldgoal with four seconds remaining and preserved the narrow Tampa Bay victory.,|
The lead changed hands five times in the game but Doug Williams' 336 yards passing including a 71-yard scoring strike to Kevin House with 10 minutes remaining proved decisive.
