In front of the lowest crowd ever at Tampa Stadium, Kevin Walker was named the NFC's Defensive Player of the Week for his two interceptions, one of which went back for a score, but this award was for the whole defense.  The Bucs forced seven sacks including a franchise record-tying three by Calvin Turner, and four interceptions. Arthur Wells recovered a fumble in the endzone to put the Bucs 10-3 up early in the third quarter, and after Adams had thrown a TD pass to tie the scores, Walker's second interception of the game put the Bucs ahead to stay.
