GAME REPORTS AND COMMENTS
The Bucs fell behind early to the Lions, but came back strongly as Mike Shula opened up the offense for Shaun King and the rookie responded with two TD passes and was just shy of a 300-yard passing game. It also put the Bucs into the lead in the NFC Central with this win over their division rivals.

"We've always been confident, but as you get momentum going and get on a winning streak, you feel like you can't be beat," Mike Alstott said. "We're in a great situation right now."
