Monday Night Football returned to Tampa and the Bucs gained a little revenge for their 2003 defeat in a similar meeting.  LeGarrette Blount led the way on the ground including the clinching touchdown with 3:15 remaining.   The Bucs had 106 yards in penalties and gave away at least 13 potential points. Arrelious Benn also had a 62- yard TD reception nullified because he went out of bounds before coming back in to catch the ball.
