Kordell Stewart and the Steelers were the rejuvenated Bucs' third victim in a row as Pittsburgh were held to just 168 yards of total offense and Buc ball triumphed in a wet Raymond James Stadium. Three times out of four, the Bucs converted on fourth down and the Buc defense picked off four passes, three by Stewart and another by his replacement, Mike Tomczak.
