31 unanswered points were bookended by a couple of Testaverde TD passes as the Cardinals completed a two-game sweep of the Bucs in 1987.

Vinny's scoring pass to Ron Hall was upheld by instant replay, the first such event in team history. Gerald Carter had the last of his 100-yard games in his eighth and final season with the Bucs in this one.
