Click here for how the Bucs got mauled by the Viking defense
The Bucs managed to allow seven sacks of Vinny Testaverde but still fought back from an early deficit to within a score in the fourth quarter.

Then a 76-yard, 13-play drive resulted in Herschel Walker's clinching score with 5:40 remaining in the game. James Wilder started his 100th game in this one, the fifth Buc to reach that milestone.
