GAME REPORTS AND COMMENTS
They had to win to keep their slim post-season hopes alive and for the first time in nine years, the Bucs left Soldier Field with a win. Brice Hunter caught the only TD pass of his career on a Hail Mary pass as the first half expired.

"Call it what you want" said Warren Sapp." But I call it a win and we've got that good feeling back."
