Tampa Bay Buccaneers 26  Cleveland Browns 23 Sunday 21 October 2018        at Raymond James Stadium
There are defeats that can be regarded as moral victories.  This felt more like a victory that was a moral defeat.   Twice leading by two touchdowns, the Bucs allowed Cleveland back into the game and after a missed 40-yard FG attempt by Chandler Catanzaro, the game went into overtime.  There the latter won it with a 59-yarder, the second-longest in team history after the Buccaneers recovered a fumbled punt.  They also won in spite of four turnovers.
