This was the Bucs' second appearance on British TV, but it was seen from an Atlanta standpoint as the show focused on Mick Luckhurst who won the game for the Falcons in overtime. Both starting DEs, Ron Holmes and John Cannon, were lost to injury on the same play, and the Bucs lost a 20-7 half-time lead. David Archer completed a miracle 4th down pass on the final FG-tying drive and even that kick was partially deflected by Tyrone Keys.
