Morris 1 run (Schubert kick)
Giles 1 pass from DeBerg (Igwebuike kick)
For the fifth time in nine games, the Bucs had the lead at half-time, but for the ninth time in nine games, they
lost. The Bucs did drive to midfield inside the final minute but a completion to Adger Armstrong to the Giants'
38 was called back for holding and they got no closer. Jerry Bell's season-ending knee injury curtailed his
best-ever NFL season, one in which he was leading all NFC tight ends with 43 receptions at the time. "Some
guy in Newark threw the flag from the airport" said guard Sean Farrell on the key penalty. "The guy never
takes the flag out of his pocket unless the game is on the line and he has got money on it."
