The Bucs lost more than a game in Cleveland as they also lost star running back James Wilder for the season when he broke a pair of ribs on a third quarter run.   This was also another game in which the kicking game let them down as trailing 10-0, the Bucs had a nine-minute 2nd quarter drive stall inside the Brown's five-yard line only for Bill Capece to miss the fieldgoal wide right.   A few minutes after, he missed another from 31 yards and the Bucs never threatened to score again.
