I was there for this one and sitting right behind the Buc bench, got to hear all the abuse the home fans were directing Sam Wyche's way. At one point, Casey Weldon even looked at me and shook his head to stop me getting involved. The only highlights were Vernon Turner returning a kick 77 yards and almost scoring too, and watching Trent Dilfer's first NFL touchdown pass right at the end of the game.
