Behind the combination of Walter Payton and Mike Tomczak, the Bears easily disposed of the Bucs at Tampa Stadium to send the Bucs to 2-8 on the season.   Payton was playing on a dislocated toe that he had suffered the previous week in the loss to the Rams, yet still torched the Tampa defense for 139 yards on the ground and another 69 in the air.
