Leading 17-3 inside the final two minutes, the Bucs looked like that had this battle of the unbeatens. But then ex- Buc Vinny Testaverde hit Curtis Martin with a score and after a Mike Alstott fumble, Martin himself lofted a half- back option pass to Wayne Chrebet for the game winner at a watery Raymond James Stadium.  This was Vinny's first game back in Tampa and also the game in which Keyshawn only caught one ball, a shovel pass for a single solitary yard.
