SCORING TB 6:13-1Q Igwebuike FG33 GB 8:22-1Q Epps 30 run (Del Greco kick) TB 6:09-2Q Wilder 1 run (Igwebuike kick) GB 14:44-2Q Del Greco FG29 GB 12:16-3Q Del Greco FG40 TB 1:44-4Q Giles 3 pass from Young (Igwebuike kick) GB 7:57-4Q Clark 6 run (Del Greco kick)
The 1985 season ended with another loss when Donald Igwebuike's 48-yard fieldgoal that would have tied the scores, missed with 2:58 remaining.   Randy Wright replaced future Buc strike QB Jim Zorn in the second half, and led the Packers to their go-ahead touchdown midway through the final period.   Four turnovers and another earlier miss by Igwebuike didn't help the Buccaneer cause either.
