GAME REPORTS AND COMMENTS
10 sacks which tied a Steeler team record and 143 yards rushing to Jerome Bettis - not exactly what the Buccaneer fans at RJS hoped for in this inter-conference match-up with Pittsburgh.

The Steeler 3-4 defense gave the Tampa OL fits all day and the result wasn't even as close as the scoreline might indicate as the Bucs only scored in the final 30 seconds.
