The Bucs actually had their third-highest offensive output in team history in this one - problem was, the Bengals were in full no-huddle flow and scored 42 unanswered points to flatten the Bucs.

Ray Perkins famously gave his players two days off after this loss stating "that he just didn't want to see them again".
