GAME REPORTS AND COMMENTS
This game was live on Sky Sports in the UK and after interceptions galore by both sides in the first half, Buc ball took over in the second half and the Bucs were back on the winning track for the post-season.

The key defensive effort came in the fourth quarter when John Lynch stopped Tyrone Wheatley on 4th and 1, and despite another later New York drive reaching Buc territory, the Tampa ground game ran out the final five minutes to preserve the victory.
