GAME REPORTS AND COMMENTS
The Bucs made it three in a row with a typical Tampa Bay win, tons of defense and a strong running attack. Even guard Randall McDaniel got in the act catching a TD pass on a tackle eligible play for the first time in his 13-year NFL career. "It's been in the playbook since training camp" he explained afterwards.
