The Bucs won their fifth game in a row at a scorching hot Raymond James Stadium with the Browns being the latest NFL opponent to be held to under 250 yards of total offense by the No.1 defense in the league.  Mike Alstott had one of his best career rushing days including a highlight-reel run that saw him bounce off no less than seven defenders before finally being taken down.  Warren Sapp twice took down Browns’ QB Tim Couch who looked nothing like the first overall pick of the 1999 draft and Jon Gruden’s team improved to 5-1 on the season before heading to Philadelphia for their first real test of the season.
