How Michelle Kaufman of the St.Petersburg Times saw the game
Vinny passed for the second-highest yardage total in Buc history as Tampa Bay came back with three fourth quarter touchdowns, but they could get no closer than the Colt 43-yard line on their last desperate drive and the comeback came up four points short.

Ron Hall had a career-high receiving day, but two earlier interceptions and a dominant Indianapolis team in the first half proved to be too much for the Bucs to overcome.
