It was a nationally-televised Sunday Night game in the States and Eric Zeier was making his first start in place of the benched Trent Dilfer.   The Bucs' best offensive drive was halted when an apparent TD pass to Warrick Dunn was called back after video review, but only after the Bucs were called for delay-of-game on the extra point. Mike Alstott then fumbled at the Detroit 1-yard line and Tampa Bay never threatened again.
