Michael Vick never seemed to have good days in Tampa and this was one when he was well and truly shut out.  New kicker Jay Taylor kicked a pair of fieldgoals including a 50-yarder to open his Buccaneer account and the rest of the offense weighed in for a comfortable home victory taking the Bucs to 5-7 on the season.
