One of the most dramatic wins in franchise history as the Bucs pulled to within a point on Chris Simms’ TD pass to Edell Shepherd and then coach Jon Gruden passed up the PAT to tie the score to go for a two-point conversion to win it.  Mike Alstott was adjudged to have broken the plane on his dive although the jury remains out on that one.  Either way, the Bucs took the win in spectacular style.
