The Philadelphia jinx struck again as the Bucs lost for the third straight season in Veterans Stadium and saw QB Brad Johnson knocked out of the game with bruised ribs.  The Bucs’ offense was held out of the endzone and the only Tampa Bay score came on yet another Derrick Brooks’ defensive touchdown, this one coming after Simeon Rice had sacked Donovan McNabb and forced a fumble.  Duce Staley ran over, around and through the Buccaneer defense all day, racking up a season-high 152 yards against Monte Kiffin’s vaunted unit.   And the question therefore remained, could the Bucs ever win in Philadelphia?
