Rick Stroud's lead story from Soldier Field
Calls or no cals, Bucs should have won
Questionable calls collect a toll
For the third straight week, the Buc defense held a road opponent to exactly 13 points, but Tampa Bay was again unable to turn that effort into a victory. The Bucs were outdueled by Bear RBs Raymont Harris and Rashaan Salaam, who combined for 172 yards on 35 carries.

Yet again, the Buccaneer defense was nearly immovable in the second half, allowing just 69 total yards, but a disputed Errict Rhett fumble gave Chicago a first down at Tampa Bay’s 10-yard line early in the third quarter. Harris scored on a one-yard run a few plays later.
