Most people remember this game either for Jan Stenerud setting an NFL record for most fieldgoals in a career, or for it being Howard Cosell's last game on Monday Night Football. For me, it was staying up until past 5am in the morning to listen to a crap signal on Armed Forces Radio and hearing the Bucs lose again.

Bill Capece missed a 35-yard fieldgoal in the fourth quarter and a key extra point and hence cost us another game. After the game, John McKay remarked that "Capece is Kaput" and sure enough, he never played again for the Buccaneers.

Stenerud tied the game with 28 seconds left with his third fieldgoal of the game, and the Packers then drove 65 yards on the ground in overtime to allow the veteran kicker to win it 4:07 into the extra period.
