GAME REPORTS AND COMMENTS
Shaun King pulled a rabbit out of the hat with his TD pass to Reidel Anthony just before half-time when he faked a spike and then lofted a ball to the corner of the endzone for the score.

The Bucs led 21-3 before Terry Glenn's score with just over three minutes left and had the ball at the Tampa 22-yard line with 14 seconds remaining, but heavy pressure forced four straight Bledsoe incompletions.
