Monday Night Football came back to Tampa for the second time in a season and this one was a lot better than the disaster against the Colts.  Keyshawn Johnson had been suspended in the days leading up to the game so there were more story lines but it was his replacement, Charles Lee, who had the big touchdown of the night as the Buccaneers gave themselves a brief hope of still taking a wild-card berth at the end of the year.
