I remember analysing the stats of this game with Phil Carter at Plough Lane watching Wimbledon play Manchester United of all places!

It was the coldest home game in Buc history with the game temperature at just 39 degrees leading to a crowd of less than 30,000 showing up.

Mark Carrier had his fourth straigth 100-yard game, one again missed by Vinny due to his ankle injury.
