GAME REPORTS AND COMMENTS
Every year the Vikings come to town when the Bucs are struggling. Every year, the Bucs turn them over and play like world-beaters. This was the only loss the Vikings had in the 1998 regular season, going 15-1 and only losing to Atlanta in the Championship game. The offense was fantastic and the Bucs didn't have to punt once, only the second time in team history this had happened.
