GAME REPORTS AND COMMENTS
A classic Monday night encounter in which the Bucs went for trickery on fourth down from midfield trailing 26-23 with Mike Alstott lofting an incomplete pass towards rookie TE Todd Yoder.

The ball went over on downs to the Vikings who iced the game on Gary Anderson's third fieldgoal of the night.
