The Bucs got really conservative and let Mike Alstott run all over the Broncos to victory. Trent completed over 80% of his passes and outplayed a young Brian Griese to take the Bucs to 2-1 on the season.   "A win is a win. I don't care if it's a Picasso or I drew it," said Warren Sapp. "Elway could not have got them down the field. They were going to lose this ball game. It came down a situation where they needed 85 yards to beat us. No, not today."
