A typical start for the Buccaneers
The 1994 season opened with a whimper rather than a bang as the Bucs moved the ball well between the 20-yard lines and outgained the Bucs.

But the Bears turned their possessions into three touchdowns whilst the Bucs had to rely on three Michael Husted fieldgoals for their scoring.
