This one was 42-0 in the fourth quarter and the Bucs only got on the board when the Bears picked off a Steve Young pass and started lateralling it around amongst themselves. Vince Heflin picked up the fumble and got Tampa Bay on the board.

This was the culmination of a five-game losing streak in which the Bucs were outscored by an average of 26 points a game, probably the lowest point in franchise history. And Leeman Bennett wonders why he got fired?
