If the win in Seattle the previous week had been a surprise, this road victory over the 13-1 Saints stunned everybody.  The Bucs trailed 17-0 just before half-time, fought back to within seven and then watched as Micheal Spurlock took a punt back for a touchdown to tie the scores with just over two minutes left.  And then in overtime, the Bucs turned to Cadillac Williams, who sandwiched 40 yards of rushing gains around an 8-yard scramble by Josh Freeman on a third-and-5 play to set up Connor Barth's 47-yard winning field goal. “It was a well-fought game by a really proud football team," Morris said. "I always knew they had this in them and I've felt all along that they were getting better."
