There were times in the 2003 season when the greatness of the Tampa Bay defense emerged once more to remind everyone of the Super Bowl season.  This was one of them, holding the Falcons to just 136 yards of total offense and recording four interceptions in the process.  Warren Sapp even caught a touchdown pass as he continued to play tight end in heavy formations and Michael Pittman led the ground control offense.
