The Bucs led 13-10 with the Saints back at their own 12-yard line at the two-minute warning and no timeouts left. Hokie Gajan then took a swing pass from Richard Todd and sped down the sideline for 51 yards to set up his own game-winner with a minute left. Jack Thompson was sacked seven times, but the Bucs did not turn the ball over in the entire game.

"We have got all these veterans out there making all this money and then you get a back trying to crawl out of bounds and we just kiss him" said a disgusted John McKay after the game. "Go talk to the players, they played the game. We lost because of my clever coaching."
