SCORING TB 12:17-1Q Gramatica FG45 BUF 9:42-2Q Linton 4 pass from Johnson (Christie kick) TB 3:34-2Q King 2 run (Gramatica kick) TB 11:38-4Q Dunn 6 run (Gramatica kick) BUF 8:56-4Q Moulds 19 pass from Johnson (Christie kick) TB 5:52-4Q Williams 73 punt return (Gramatica kick) BUF 2:27-4Q Christie FG28 TB 2:08-4Q Dunn 39 run (Gramatica kick)
The truth really hurts. Karl Williams had another punt return for a score and Warrick Dunn rushed for over 100 yards in the absence of the injured Mike Alstott, and the Bucs returned to winning ways.   Warren Sapp added a pair of sacks and even though the Bucs gained less than 200 yards in total offense, it was enough to win another Buc ball game.
