Leading 13-10, the Bucs had seen the Saints drive to their own 20-yard line inside the final minute. But then a holding penalty and a Dave Stalls sack pushed them back leading to Morten Andersen to attempt a 60-yard fieldgoal to tie. It missed just wide right. Bill Capece kicked two fieldgoals of his own, while three recovered New Orleans fumbles, two of them by Neal Colzie proved the ultimate difference. |
Colzie had a second straight monster game from his safety position, adding a sack and 10 tackles to the performance. Doug Williams hit on his best completion percentage of the season including a 34-yard scoring strike to Kevin House whilst under a heavy pass rush.
