The biggest Monday Night Football comeback ever.  Tony Dungy returned to Tampa but saw his Colts down by 21 points with less than five minutes left.  And then it all turned round as an injury-ravaged Buccaneer defense gave up play after play to allow the Colts to take the game to overtime.  Which was where the Colts missed a fieldgoal only for Simeon Rice to be called for a leaping penalty and Mike Vanderjagt booted the second attempt through.
