Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20  Green Bay Packers 21 Sunday 4 November 2001 at Lambeau Field
SCORING GB 9:11-1Q Freeman 21 pass from Favre (Longwell kick) TB 10:57-2Q Gramatica FG33 TB 2:02-2Q Moore 11 pass from Johnson (Gramatica kick) TB 9:53-3Q Alstott 19 pass from Johnson (Gramatica kick) GB 4:40-3Q Green 63 run (Longwell kick) TB 6:42-4Q Gramatica FG49 GB 3:03-4Q Rossum 55 punt return (Longwell kick)
This was the chance to put the Lambeau Field hoodoo to rest. The Bucs led by 10 but gave up a long touchdown run to Ahman Green and then a punt return score to Allan Rossum that proved the margin of victory. Then again, they were lucky to be that close as all 20 of their points came from the result of Packer turnovers.
