Jerry Rice used to own the Bucs when he played for San Francisco. This one was a three-TD game - he had a four-TD game later in his career but this was all the Niners needed to win. The Bucs had an early 10-7 first quarter lead after Ray Isom's interception set up DeBerg's TD strike to James Wilder.

But trailing 17-10 entering the fourth period, a Buc fumble set up the final San Francisco TD and a late drive was halted at the 49ers' 3-yard line when DeBerg was intercepted in the endzone.
