GAME REPORTS AND COMMENTS
It was under 40 degrees and the Bucs just froze up offensively. The underdog Eagles used a strong running game, mobile QB and pressure defense to win - hang on, that's Tampa Bay's script isn't it?

"We regressed, or whatever you want to call it," said Warren Sapp summing up the disappointing end to the season. "This was a big step backwards. Everybody in here better look hard in the mirror the next six months."
