GAME REPORTS AND COMMENTS
This was a strange game as the result had absolutely no bearing on anything as the two teams would meet the following weekend in Philadelphia in a wild card game.

So both teams rested everyone important and it took the air of a meaningless pre-season game.

So why the hell did most of the Bucs UK stay up until 5.30am in the morning watching it live on Channel 5?
