COMMENTARY CREW Sam Rosen and Bill Maas
This was more like the Buccaneers that the fans remembered from the Tony Dungy era.  A stifling defense, a bunch of turnovers, some special teams plays and just enough offense to get the job done.  The Bucs did not reach 300 yards in total offense and failed to reach the endzone behind Jon Gruden’s scheme and their contribution was three Martin Gramatica fieldgoals.  But a Karl Williams punt return late in the first quarter and Derrick Brooks’ interception return late on was easily enough to outscore the toothless Ravens.  Brooks’ score was the second-longest scoring play in franchise history after Shelton Quarles’ 98-yard play against Green Bay the previous year.
