Another appearance on Channel 4, but seeing as The Vicious Boys were "presenting" the show at that time, probably no-one in the UK even watched it.

His 369-yard passing performance was the most in NFL history by a debutant and Mark Carrier's 212-yard receiving day was an all-time Buc record too. Vinny's first two possessions ended on fumbles that gave the Saints a 14-0 advantage and the result was never really in doubt.
