The NFC champion Eagles gained revenge for their 1979 playoff defeat by taking advantage of three Buc turnovers in the fourth quarter to overturn a 10-7 Tampa Bay lead.   None of the Philadelphia scoring drives started in their own territory, and the strong rushing attack of Wilbert Montgomery allowed the home side to control the clock.
