This game saw the Bucs begin to fall back from their high water point of the season. Warren Sapp actually scored on an interception return when a screen pass from Jeff George went awry, but the talented two-cent-head QB threw three scoring strikes of his own to put the Falcons in control. Morten Andersen kicked the eventual game- winner midway through the fourth quarter. Errict Rhett added a pair of scores on the ground for the home team.
