GAME REPORTS AND COMMENTS
Just 94 seconds into the game, Charles Mincy picked off Danny Kanell and on a day when the Bucs outgained the Giants 230-135, enough points were on the board to last forever in this defensive slugfest. Mike Alstott finally sealed the win inside the two minute warning, and Ceri Dovey had to jump in the fountain in Trafalgar Square when we got home to London for losing a bet made some four months before!
