(12-29-79) 1979 NFC Divisional - Philadelphia Eagles vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Tampa Bay's first ever playoff game! The Bucs get strong performance from their awesome Orange Pride Defense, lead by DE Lee Roy Selmon, and a terrific effort out of star RB Ricky Bell (38-142-2... an NFL Playoff Record for number of Carries) who carries them to 24-17 win over Philadelphia - Includes halftime, commercials, and post-game (Quality 9)

(01-06-80) 1979 NFC Championship - Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs LA Rams - Rams win tough defensive battle 9-0 over Bucs. Los Angeles uses a rushing attack lead by Cullen Bryant (18-106) and Wendell Tyler (28-86) to grab victory in defensive dandy.

 

1980

(10-06-80) Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Chicago Bears - MNF - Includes Halftime (Quality 8.5) - added October, 2007

(10-12-80) Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - OT - "After I missed that field goal, I definitely wanted another chance," Green Bay K Tom Birney said. He got that opportunity, but missed again as the Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers struggled through a scoreless overtime period and settled for a 14-14 tie. Birney, a substitute junior high school teacher until the Packers re-signed him last week, missed a 24-yard field goal attempt which would have won the game in regulation. He got a chance to redeem himself with five seconds to go in the overtime but again he was off the mark. Packers Coach Bart Starr released kicker Chester Marcol last week saying that an injury had left him without the ability to get much distance or hang time in his kicks. "I'm not going to second guess myself," said Starr. "Who's to say anyone else would have made those field goals. We played well, but didn't win," said Starr. "A tie leaves you with an empty feeling, especially in an overtime." Tampa Coach John McKay said it would be "an understatement of the year to say we did not play well." - Switches to game 3 mins in as first DVD starts with beginning of Giants Eagles game before switching to this game, Includes Halftime and Commercials (4 DVDs) (Quality 8.5) - Added May, 2011

(11-16-80) Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Minnesota Vikings - Doug Williams throws for 486 Yards - (Quality 8) - added August, 2011

(11-30-80) Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Green Bay Packers - A remarkable 44-yard reception by rookie Kevin House set up Johnny Davis' one-yard run with 1:58 remaining and broke a three-game losing streak for Tampa Bay. For Green Bay, a possible tie was missed when Jan Stenerud's 45-yard field goal was wide left as time expired. The Packers would begin a season-ending slide of epic proportions. Tampa Bay RB Rick Berns made his first start for the Bucs and led the team with 72 yards on the ground.. GOTW highlights, 10 minutes, ESPN classic (Quality 8.5) same disc as 12-14-69 Bears "gotw" - Added March, 2011

 

1981

(09-13-81) Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Kansas City Chiefs - Includes Halftime and commercials (3 DVDs) (Quality 8.5) - added March, 2011

(10-11-81) Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Green Bay Packers - George Cumby returned a fumble 68 yards for a touchdown, two yards shy of the Packer record at the time (70 yards - Mike Butler versus Minnesota - November 11, 1979), but Green Bay squandered an early lead for the fourth time in five games. Tampa Bay intercepted four passes, including Cecil Johnson's which set up Doug Williams' one-yard run. - added June, 2007

(11-22-81) Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - This was the then-biggest win in Tampa Bay history as the Bucs took advantage of four interceptions to race to a 27-0 half-time lead. David Whitehurst went down with a groin injury, and his replacement, Rich Campbell, was picked off four times in his first 30 professional passes. Cedric Brown returned one pick for a score for the second straight week, and Bill Capece set a then-Buccaneer record with a 51-yard field goal. Even Tampa Bay reserve QB Chuck Fusina came off the bench to throw his only TD as a Buc. Tampa RB James Owens' (16-112-1rush, 4-44rec) also had a big day. (Quality 9.0)

(10-02-83) Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Green Bay Packers - Green Bay scores an NFL Record 49 points in a half to lead 49-7 at the half. Green Bay rolled up over 500 yards of offense and scored in almost every way possible, run, pass, kick, interception return, fumble return and punt return. The Bucs were playing without three starters in their defensive secondary, both offensive guards and James Wilder, and did finally score an offensive touchdown late in the game. The Packers defense was ranked last (28th) in the National Football League at this point. After the game, Tampa Bay head coach John McKay tore into his team in a 15-second rant after the game. "I was totally disgusted by the football exhibition of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers," McKay said. "We could do nothing right against one of the great NFL defenses." When Milwaukee Sentinel reporter Bud Lea, then 54, tried to ask McKay a question, the Tampa Bay coach shouted: "Get the hell away from me before I punch you in the mouth!" (Quality 9.0)

(12-12-83) Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - OT - Crucially important division clash on MNF has Green Bay pulling out 12-9 win in OT to keep their Playoff hopes alive! Most people remember this game either for Jan Stenerud setting an NFL record for most field goals in a career, or for it being Howard Cosell's last game on Monday Night Football. Bill Capece missed a 35-yard field goal in the fourth quarter and a key extra point. After the game, John McKay remarked that "Capece is Kaput" and sure enough, he never played again for the Buccaneers. Stenerud tied the game with 28 seconds left with his third field goal of the game, and the Packers then drove 65 yards on the ground in overtime to allow the veteran kicker to win it 4:07 into the extra period. (Quality 9.0)

(09-30-84) Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - With six minutes left, nose tackle David Logan intercepted a screen pass and took it back for a touchdown that gave Tampa Bay a 27-20 lead. The Packers then launched a late drive that ended with 21 seconds remaining when Lynn Dickey hit James Lofton who ran the hook and ladder play to Gerry Ellis who scored from 36 yards out. The Bucs then held Green Bay twice in overtime before Obed Ariri kicked the game winner with 4:22 to play in the extra period. James Wilder set an NFL record by carrying the ball 43 times in one game breaking his own record set the previous year in Pittsburgh. (Quality 7.5)

(12-02-84) Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Green Bay Packers - Pre-game snow created a wet, muddy, windy and cold day that the Buccaneers adapted to faster than the Packers on their way to a 14-0 halftime lead. After the half the Packers would adapt and score 4 times to pull off the comeback win. Tampa Bay's star RB James Wilder shines (27-88 & 11-48rec) and gets the NFL records of most Rushing Attempts and Most Combined Attempts from Scrimmage in a season. Wilder would also throw a TD pass on a halfback option. The Bucs picked off three Lynn Dickey passes, but four Tampa Bay fumbles proved too much to overcome. (Quality 9.0)

(12-01-85) Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Green Bay Packers - "The Snow Bowl" This was probably the worst conditions that an NFL game has ever been played in. A foot of snow was on the field at kickoff time and another four inches fell DURING the game itself, in total 18 inches of snow would fall on this day. Temperature at kickoff was 30 degrees with wind from the north-northeast at 25 miles per hour, gusting to 35 miles per hour. Tampa Bay wore white uniforms, and Steve Young couldn't even see his receivers at times through the blizzard. The Bucs were out gained 512-65 which makes the final 21 point margin seem amazingly small. Lynn Dickey completed 22 of 36 passes for 299 yards to his receivers with James Lofton catching six for 106 yards. Buc quarterback Steve Young, playing in his second NFL game, completed just 8 of 17 passes for 53 yards. The Bucs would end up with 23 net yards on the day of offense. Less than 20,000 actually made it to the game with over 45,000 no-shows at Lambeau Field, as many roads were impassable. Eddie Lee Ivery ran for 109 yards, and Gerry Ellis added 101, in the snow. (Quality 9.5)

(12-22-85) Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Tampa Bay's QB Steve Young (277yds, 1td, 40 yds rush) has good game to end dismal Buc season, who lose again 20-17 to the Pack when K Donald Igwebuike’s 48-yard game tying field goal missed with 2:58 left. Randy Wright replaced QB Jim Zorn in the second half, and led the Packers to their go-ahead touchdown midway through the final period. Four turnovers and another earlier miss by Igwebuike didn't help the Buccaneer cause either. (Quality 9)

(11-16-86) Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Green Bay Packers - In a battle of NFC Central cellar dwellers, any hopes of a Tampa Bay victory went out of the window in the first quarter when James Wilder left the game through injury. Replacement Ron Springs was only a shadow of the great man, and in spite of a monster day by Gerald Carter (7 catches for 143 yards), the Bucs only got on the scoreboard with three minutes left in the game and the result beyond doubt. The Packers took the lead on a Randy Wright to Phillip Epps pass on their second offensive play of the game, and their defense forced six sacks of Steve Young and two interceptions. - (Quality 9) (3 discs)

(12-14-86) Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - In a battle for last place in the NFC Central, just over 30,000 showed up for Leeman Bennett's last home game as Tampa Bay head coach and watched the Packers stroll to an easy win over the 2-12 Bucs. Seven sacks and two interceptions was the Bucs' offensive total as Green Bay only allowed a late consolation score to Calvin Magee for the few home supporters left in the stadium to cheer. - (Quality 9.5) (3 discs)

 

1987

(11-01-87) Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Green Bay Packers - After moving out to a 20-0 lead for the second straight week, it was nearly deja vu all over again for Tampa Bay as they hold off a late rally by the Packers to move to 4-3 on the season. The Green Bay recovery started when Randy Wright replaced Don Majkowski (who went 4-for-14 for 43 yards) and drove the home side to two fourth quarter scores. However Steve DeBerg and Calvin Magee twice connected on third down passes to use up the final 3:45 on the clock and preserve the Buccaneer victory. (Quality 8.5)

(11-08-87) WK 8 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ St. Louis Cardinals - Includes NFL Today pregame, Halftime, and NFL Today post-game (Quality 8.5) - named one of the greatest comebacks in NFL history - added August, 2011

(12-20-87) St. Louis Cardinals @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - added March, 2009

 

1988

(09-11-88) Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Green Bay Packers - Tampa Bay's nine-game losing streak dating back to 1987 came to an end at Lambeau Field thanks to the littlest guy on the Buc roster. Donald Igwebuike's 28-yarder with three seconds left marked a comeback from an early 10-0 deficit, thanks in no part to the Nigerian kicker who booted a 53-yarder just before half-time. - added June 2007

(10-02-88) Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - For the second time in a month, Donald Igwebuike beat the Packers with a late fieldgoal, this one coming after an eight-play, 72-yard drive that ended with Vinny Testaverde hitting Bruce Hill for the tying score just inside the two minute warning. Testaverde did throw four picks including one for a score that negated his 300-yard passing day. - added January 2008

 

1989

(09-10-89) Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Green Bay Packers - Vinny Testaverde won the NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors with an almost flawless performance in the season-opening win in Lambeau Field. Mark Robinson's second pick of the game ended a Packer drive at the Tampa 16-yard line with 5:32 to play, and the Bucs managed to run out the rest of the clock with four consecutive first downs. Includes commercials and halftime (Quality 9)

(12-03-89) Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - It was another one-point game for the Buccaneers, the first time in NFL history any team had played three of them in a row. Green Bay got a break when the Tampa Bay was called for a dubious penalty on fourth down that set up the winning kick, one that crept over the crossbar into a strong wind. And the Packers had lined up in an illegal formation on that fourth down play that didn't get called. It was that kind of season for Green Bay. (Quality 9)

 

1990

(10-14-90) Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Vinny Testaverde passed for a season-high 292 yards and Wayne Haddix scored from 45 yards out with one of five interceptions by Tampa Bay. Testaverde completed 17 of 29 passes, including a 14-yard scoring shot to Ron Hall, giving him eight TDs passes against only two interceptions. Don Majkowski, who has struggled since ending a long contract holdout, threw for 355 yards and one touchdown for Green Bay. But the interceptions, among six turnovers by the Packers, helped Tampa Bay build a 26-7 lead. - added June 2007

(11-25-90) Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Green Bay Packers - Anthony Dilweg, filling in for the injured Don Majkowski, threw two touchdown passes as the Green Bay Packers beat Tampa Bay 20-10, sending the Buccaneers to their sixth straight loss. Green Bay won its third straight and is over the .500 mark for the first time since defeating the Los Angeles Rams in its season opener behind Dilweg. Tampa Bay has not won since beating the Packers in mid-October, and not even the return of quarterback Vinny Testaverde could shake the Bucs out of their losing streak. Dilweg, now 2-1 as a starter this season, got the call Sunday because Majkowski had a bruised shoulder. He also started the first two games this season after Majkowski ended a 45-day holdout. Dilweg flipped a 2-yard touchdown pass to Michael Haddix on the sixth play of the third quarter, putting the Packers ahead 14-3. The score came after Tampa Bay's Reggie Cobb fumbled on the Bucs' second play of the half and Scott Stephen recovered at the Tampa Bay 18. Chris Jacke's 25-yard field goal increased the Green Bay lead to 17-3 with 4:12 to go in the quarter. Testaverde, benched the previous two weeks because of ineffective play, then moved the Bucs 75 yards in just seven plays with five pass completions, including an 11-yard touchdown pass to Bruce Hill with 53 seconds to go in the third quarter. Dilweg then hit Sterling Sharpe with a 30-yard pass and Darrell Thompson broke loose on a 37-yard run to the Bucs 15. But again the Packers couldn't get a touchdown and Jacke hit another 25-yarder, making it 20-10 with 11:23 remaining. - added June 2007

 

1991

(09-15-91) Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Green Bay Packers - Don Majkowski filtered out the boos and led Green Bay to its first victory, his late game passing and Chris Jacke's 22-yard field goal with 22 seconds to go producing a victory over winless Tampa Bay. The Packers ended a seven-game skid dating to November, when they last beat the Buccaneers. Tampa Bay lost its third consecutive tough decision under coach Richard Williamson. The Bucs took a 13-5 lead with 3:59 left when Willie Drewery grabbed a tipped pass from Vinny Testaverde and raced 87 yards for a touchdown. Majkowski, the object of fan displeasure all afternoon, moved the Packers 76 yards in seven plays, throwing an 8-yard touchdown pass to Vince Workman with 2:03 left. Majkowski completed five passes for 65 yards and the Buccaneers were assessed a personal foul during the drive. - added June 2007

(09-29-91) Wk 5 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Detroit Lions - Barry Sanders rushes for 160 yards and 3 TDs including a 69 yard TD run which was the longest of his career up to that point. (QUALITY = 8) - Added June, 2011

(10-27-91) Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - If only the Green Bay Packers could play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers every week. The Packers, 3-0 against Tampa Bay but 0-11 against the rest of the NFL in their last 14 games, climbed out of last place in the NFC Central with a 27-0 victory over the hapless Bucs. Green Bay's defense forced eight turnovers, had six sacks and also scored on Brian Noble's fumble recovery to pace the triumph before a crowd of 40,275, the smallest of the season at Tampa Stadium. Tampa Bay fell to 2-9 under coach Richard Williamson, who in a move of desperation yanked Chris Chandler early in the second quarter and placed the offense in the hands of Jeff Carlson, normally the team's third-string quarterback. - added June 2007

 

1992

(09-13-92) Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Favre plays in first regular season game as a Packer and his first completion would be to himself! Vinny Testaverde shrugged off the flu to play the game of his career, leading host Tampa Bay over the Green Bay Packers 31-3 for the Buccaneers' first 2-0 start in 12 years. The often-criticized quarterback became the Bucs' career passing leader while completing 22 of 25 attempts for 363 yards and two touchdowns. He also scored on a 2-yard run, hitting Adrian White at the goal line and spiking the ball in the safety's face after forcing his way into the end zone. The Bucs' no-huddle offense wasn't the whole story, though. Tampa Bay's defense played well for the second straight week, limiting the Packers to Chris Jacke's 33-yard field goal.

(10-24-93) Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - This game was all about the uncoverable All-Pro WR Sterling Sharpe. The Green Bay Packers found another way for Sterling Sharpe to attack a defense. Sharpe caught four touchdown passes in a 37 14 victory over the host Tampa Bay Buccaneers and also lined up at quarterback for two plays - running for 5 yards on one and completing the only pass he's thrown during his career on the other. Sharpe, who set a NFL single season record with 108 receptions last year, finished with 10 catches for 147 yards, the 21st 100-yard game of his career and his third against NFC Central rival Tampa Bay. Brett Favre completed 20 of 35 passes for 268 yards for Green Bay, which forced three turnovers and held the Bucs to 65 yards total offense in the opening half.

Terrell Buckley and LeRoy Butler each had interceptions off Enckson in the opening quarter, and Johnny Holland snatched a Steve DeBerg pass and returned it 30 yards to set up Green Bay's third touchdown. Sharp began that drive at quarterback, lining up in shotgun formation and breaking up the middle for 5 yards on first down. He threw to Mark Clayton for 1 yard on second down before Favre, who had been watching from the sideline, returned. The Green Bay quarterback threw 6 yards to Sharpe on third-and-4, and the Packers continued marching with Sharp gaining 20 yards on a pass from Favre. On second-and-6 from the Tampa Bay 10, Sharpe broke free in the end zone for his third touchdown reception. (Quality 8.5)

The Green Bay defense would force 3 turnovers in the game as well to help the offense. Not all the ex-Packers had a good time at Green Bay's annual homecoming game. Chris Jacke kicked three field goals as Green Bay routed Tampa Bay 30-3, spoiling the return of ex-Packers Jackie Harris, Vince Workman and Charles Wilson. Sixty former Green Bay players, including four Hall of Famers and six who played on the 1944 championship team, were at Lambeau Field for the reunion.

After being held to just 37 yards rushing in the first two quarters, Sanders exploded for 200 yards in the second half. And despite yielding 343 total net yards and allowing the Tampa Bay offense to penetrate into field goal range five times, the Lions' defensive troops escaped by allowing only three Michael Husted (from 20, 41 and 34 yards) field goals. Trailing 3-0 at half-time, Detroit marched 83 yards on nine plays to begin the second half, with Derrick Moore capping the drive with a 1-yard TD plunge. Husted's 41-yarder cut the Lion lead to 7-6, but a Dave Krieg (5-of-13 for 99 yards and 1 TD) scoring strike to Herman Moore on the subsequent drive pushed the Detroit cushion to 14-6 heading into the fourth quarter. Husted's 34-yarder at the beginning of the fourth quarter chopped Detroit's lead to 14-9. The Lions were forced to punt, but on the ensuing drive, linebacker Tracy Scroggins came up big, sacking Tampa Bay's Craig Erickson (16-of-23 for 243 yards) on consecutive plays, forcing a punt, which resulted in Sanders and the Lions' ground attack running out the clock to ensure Detroit's third win in its last four games.

(12-24-94) Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Tampa Bay was trying to avoid another ten-loss season and win their fifth straight. The Packers were trying to make the playoffs. Green Bay rolled up a 433-214 yardage advantage to complete a season sweep. Sterling Sharpe always killed the Bucs when he played against them and 132 yards and two touchdowns was probably less than his usual performance. It was Sharpe's last game as a Packer, as he missed the playoffs and had off-season neck surgery in hopes of returning to the playing field, but chose instead to retire and pursue a career in broadcasting. The victory combined with Chicago's loss to New England assured the Packers of no worse than the second of three wild-card spots. The victory also kept their hopes of winning the Central Division alive, but those were extinguished when Minnesota won on Monday night. Brett Favre completed 24 of 36 passes for 291 yards and three TDs (all to Sterling Sharpe). Edgar Bennett would also run for a 39-yard TD to start the scoring in the game. (Quality 9)

The teams had never before met when both had winning records. A Tampa Bay victory would have put the Buccaneers in a tie for the NFC Central lead this late in the season for the first time since 1980. But Errict Rhett, the NFC's third leading rusher, was held to minus 1 yard on 13 carries and the Bucs lost for the fourth time in five games.

Trent Dilfer and Brett Favre put up similar numbers, but Edgar Bennett ran for 93 yards as the home team held the rushing advantage 129 yards to 57. Green Bay took a 13-0 lead into the intermission, a margin that could have been wider but for the efforts of John Lynch, who had seven tackles, one interception and two passes defended in the first two quarters. Though Tampa Bay did not crack the end zone at hostile Lambeau field until midway through the final period on an 11-yard TD catch by TE Dave Moore, the Bucs still held the ball in the final minutes with a chance to pull off a significant upset. but the visitors’ final comeback shot ended when Dilfer was sacked for a nine-yard loss on fourth-and-six. - (Quality 9)

(10-05-97) Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Sapp and Favre get into it - The Green Bay Packers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are both back to their old ways. Barely. The reeling Packers halted their slide and thwarted Tampa's equally astonishing ascent with a 21-16 victory, their 22nd straight at Lambeau Field on Sunday. It wasn't easy. The Packers survived a second-half scare when Trent Dilfer misfired twice to Warrick Dunn from the Green Bay 42 with less than two minutes left. The Bucs, trying for their first 6-0 start, got one more shot. But with no timeouts and 38 seconds left, the game ended with Tampa Bay at its 46 after a 4-yard pass to Dunn. Tampa Bay has not had a winning season in 15 years. Dilfer led the Bucs on scoring drives of 63 and 90 yards following Hardy Nickerson's block of Ryan Longwell's 47-yard field goal attempt in the third quarter. Sparked by Nickerson's big play, the Buccaneers roared back from a 21-3 deficit, but couldn't pull off their first win in Green Bay since 1989. Dilfer drove the Buccaneers 63 yards in seven plays, with Mike Alstott leaping in from the 1 to pull Tampa Bay to 21-10 with three minutes left in the third quarter.

(10-12-97) Detroit Lions @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Running back Barry Sanders (24 att., 215 yds., 2 TDs) became the first player in NFL history to have two touchdown runs of 80 yards or longer in the same game. Sanders, whose 215 yards represent the third-highest total in team history, gave the Lions a 7-3 lead on an 80-yard run, which was to that point the longest TD run of his career. On that play, Sanders passed Jim Brown (12,312 yards) to move into fourth place on the NFL's all-time rushing list; Sanders finished the day with 12,513 career rushing yards. Sanders' also rambled 82 yards for a TD, topping his career-best TD run set earlier in the game. Sanders added his third TD, on a seven-yard catch from Scott Mitchell (20 att., 16 comp., 222 yds., 1 TD) to close out the scoring. - Added March, 2009

(12-07-97) Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Green Bay Packers - The Favre Sapp rivalry continues - This win assured the Packers their 3rd straight Central Division title and a first round bye in the playoffs - The Green Bay Packers aren't ready to relinquish supremacy in the NFC Central. The defending Super Bowl champions clinched their third straight division title, as well as a first-round bye in the playoffs, with a 17-6 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. With the second-place Bucs needing a victory to earn their first playoff berth since 1982, the game was billed as Tampa Bay's biggest since the franchise appeared in the 1979 NFC title game. The crowd of 73,523 at Houlihan's Stadium was the largest ever to watch a Bucs home game and saw Brett Favre throw two touchdown passes to become the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for 30 TDs in four consecutive seasons. Favre, the two-time league MVP, threw 43 yards to Robert Brooks and 8 yards to Dorsey Levens for scores before leading an 88-yard field goal drive that lasted more than 10 minutes to put the game out of reach with 6:24 to go. Tampa Bay's offense sputtered all day, but especially after Trent Dilfer sprained his right ankle late in the first half. The Bucs quarterback was not effective when he returned in the third quarter and eventually was replaced by Steve Walsh. The Packers, coming off emotional victories over Dallas and Minnesota the previous two weeks, beat Tampa Bay for the ninth time in 10 meetings. Favre completed 25 of 33 passes for 280 yards and was intercepted once. Dilfer was 6-of-l 7 for 67 yards and was injured when Reggie White dropped him for a 6-yard loss on one of Green Bay's four sacks. The Bucs, who outplayed the Packers during a 21-16 loss at Lambeau Field on Oct 5, can still clinch a playoff berth by winning one of their remaining two games against the New York Jets and Chicago Bears. - Includes commercials and halftime (Quality 8.5)

(01-04-98) 1997 NFC Divisional Playoffs - Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Green Bay Packers - Favre and Sapp really show their "love" for each other in this game - In a contest more than slightly reminiscent of two earlier regular-season encounters, the resourceful Packers outlasted the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 21-7, in their divisional playoff - the first postseason meeting between the teams. The Packers, defeating the Bucs for the third time this season in a tightfisted, defensive struggle, had bested Tampa Bay, 21-16, in the Floridians' first visit of the season to Lambeau Field (October 5) and subsequently repeated that success with 17-6 win at Tampa's Houlihan's Stadium December 7. The Green and Gold, holding a 13-0 lead at halftime on this occasion, appeared in position to put the game away at the start of the third quarter when Antonio Freeman returned the second half kickoff 90 yards for what appeared to be a touchdown, but Darren Sharper drew a 10-yard holding penalty en route and the Packers found themselves beginning their third period exertions from their own 11-yard line. Favre, undeterred by the "setback," quickly maneuvered the Green and Gold into scoring position, directing a march that carried them to a first down at the Tampa Bay 25-yard line. On the eighth play of the drive, however, the Bucs' Donnie Abraham put an abrupt end to it, waylaying a Favre pass at the 6-yard line. The Buccaneers, taking advantage of the contretemps, then drove 94 yards in 8 plays for their only touchdown of the game, fullback Mike Alstott sweeping left end from 6 yards out for the score, and at 13-7, it briefly was a new game. Two exchanges later, the Packers decided it was time to settle the issue and they moved 54 yards in 9 plays for their final TD of the afternoon, Dorsey Levens bolting over left guard from the 2 for the score. QB Brett Favre then provided one of the afternoon's more titillating moments, scoring a 2-point conversion on a quarterback draw which saw him exuberantly attempt to "dunk" the football over the crossbar after charging into the end zone. Levens was a key factor in the winning process, setting a new Packer postseason single-game rushing record, 112 yards in 25 carries, to play a major role in both controlling and advancing the football. He also caught 4 passes for 29 yards to close out the day with 141 yards of total offense. Favre, meanwhile, had a productive afternoon despite heavy pressure from the Bucs' defense, weathering 4 sacks to completed 15 of 28 passes for 190 yards and one touchdown - the 19th postseason TD of his remarkable career. FS Eugene Robinson, mounting one of his best efforts, paced a miserly defense with 10 tackles (4 solos and 6 assists), fellow S LeRoy Butler and Keith McKenzie weighing in with key sacks and CB Tyrone Williams and S Mike Prior with interceptions. DT Bob Kuberski also authored one of the day's biggest plays, knocking snapper Dave Moore back from the line of scrimmage and blocking Michael Husted's 43-yard field goal attempt, which would have provided the first points of the game. The statistics reflect the tenor of the contest, the Packers finishing with 289 yards to the Bucs' 263, the visitors with 66 offensive plays to the Green and Gold's 64. The Packers, however, did manage to emerge with an edge in time of possession, 32 minutes, 3 seconds to the Buccaneers' 27 minutes, 57 seconds.

(09-13-98) Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Green Bay Packers - In a strong defensive performance, the Packers limited the Buccaneers to 211 net yards and sacked Tampa QB Trent Dilfer 6 times - 3 courtesy of defensive end Reggie White. The game was a costly one, however, as RB Dorsey Levens broke his leg in the fourth quarter. Levens, still finding himself after sitting out training camp and the preseason, had to be content with 43 hard-earned yards in 18 carries, a 2.4-yard average, in the face of a tightfisted Tampa Bay defense. Brett Favre closed out a typically productive afternoon with 22 completions in 33 attempts for 237 yards and 2 touchdowns - the 185th and 186th of his seven-year Packers career - with, for the second week in a row, no interceptions. Green Bay's defense limited the Buccaneers to 211 net yards and sacked quarterback Trent Dilfer 6 times for 50 yards in losses, Reggie White posting three, Keith McKenzie two and Santana Dotson one of them.

Bryant Westbrook scored his second career interception for touchdown (34 yards) to end Tampa Bay's first drive of the half. Moments later, Batch scored his first career touchdown, a one-yard sneak on fourth-and-goal to increase the Lions' advantage to 20-3 midway through the third quarter. Rookie Terry Fair would return a kickoff for a team-record 105 yards, his second kickoff return score of the year. Barry Sanders chipped in with 131 yards in 27 carries to record the 70th 100-yard outing of his career, and the Lions' defense sacked Bucs' QB Trent Dilfer four times and held Tampa Bay to 48 yards of offense in the second half. - Added March, 2009

The winning pass capped a six-play, 73-yard drive Favre directed in 40 seconds against the Buccaneers' top-ranked defense.

(11-12-00) Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - The determined, emotional and well-prepared Packers carried a stirring upset bid deep into the second half before bobbles and blunders led to their undoing, 20-15, at the hands of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This time, Ahman Green's fumble and Antonio Freeman's inexcusable lack of judgment cost the Packers dearly. The Packers outpointed the Buccaneers by a slight margin in just about every statistical category and actually had the lead, 15-14, early in the fourth quarter on Matt Hasselbeck's 27-yard touchdown pass off a fake field goal to Bubba Franks. But then Santana Dotson blew containment on scrambling Shaun King, enabling Martin Gramatica to attempt, and make, a field goal from 54 yards. When Green fumbled three plays later, Gramatica was true again, this time from 51 yards, and the Packers were finished. Warren Sapp's sack of Favre on third-and-9 in the third quarter left Favre in pain when his left foot got caught under the falling 303-pound defensive tackle. He would not return to the game.

St. Louis, which outlasted the Saints, 26-21, claimed the sixth and final berth in the NFC playoffs that would have gone to Green Bay if the Rams had lost. The Packers needed both the Rams and Detroit Lions to lose. The Lions choked, 23-20, in the Silverdome against the Chicago Bears, but the defending Super Bowl champions took care of business at the Superdome. Buccaneers kicker Martin Gramatica could have provided his team victory with 14 seconds to play in the game, but instead he sent a 40-yard field goal wide right. The Packers won the overtime coin toss and took possession at their own 38-yard line following Allen Rossum's 29-yard kickoff return. A first-down catch by fullback William Henderson and two runs by Ahman Green placed the Packers on the Tampa Bay 45-yard line with a third-and-4. But Green, who already had rushed for 74 yards and 2 touchdowns, then was forced to leave the playing field after being kicked in the ankle. Backup De'Mond Parker entered and quickly made a dramatic impact, catching a six-yard pass from Brett Favre to gain a first down.

Cornerback Donnie Abraham intercepted Favre's first pass on the Packers' opening drive. Early in the second quarter Green Bay was poised to take the first lead of the game when Shelton Quarles intercepted a Favre pass and ran it back 98-yards for a touchdown. It was the longest interception return in Tampa Bay history. Green Bay would eventually answer midway through the second quarter when Bill Schroeder hauled in a 67-yard touchdown reception from Favre. That would be Favre's only touchdown pass of the day going 20-35 for 258 yards and three interceptions. Tampa Bay's Brad Johnson completed 23 of 29 attempts for 184 yards. - added June, 2007

However, it was a diminutive, 5-foot-8 kick returner who stole the show. Allen Rossum's 55-yard punt return for a touchdown with three minutes left propelled Green Bay to a 21-20 win over Tampa Bay. Tampa Bay still had not won in Wisconsin since 1989 and will not visit Lambeau Field in the regular season again until 2005 because of realignment. The teams split the season series with each winning at home. The Buccaneers converted all three Packer turnovers into points en route to a 17-7 third-quarter lead.

(11-24-02) Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - If the Green Bay Packers have to come back to Tampa Bay later this season, it sure will be a heated game. The Buccaneers intercepted four of Brett Favre's passes and beat the Packers 21-7 in a meeting Sunday of the teams with the NFL's best records. The superb effort was overshadowed by an obscenity-laced exchange between Packers coach Mike Sherman and Tampa Bay defensive lineman Warren Sapp as they walked off the field. Sherman was angry about a block Sapp put on Chad Clifton during Brian Kelly's interception return in the third quarter that set up the Bucs' go-ahead touchdown. Sherman thought the hit was questionable and felt Sapp made it worse by standing over Clifton. "I just don't think there's any place in the game for that," Sherman said. "Maybe 1 overreacted to the hit. But what I saw looked kind of cheap. But who knows?" Clifton, who was not near Kelly, was knocked out of the game with a right hip injury. Sapp was unapologetic. "I didn't clip him from behind or block him below the waist. I didn't hit him in the head. I didn't hit the quarterback. I didn't rough anybody," Sapp said. "I didn't pick him up and slam him. What's the problem here?" Brad Johnson threw two second-half touchdown passes as the Bucs (9-2) improved on their best start ever and thrust themselves into position to make a run for home-field advantage in the playoffs. Favre was sacked three times and the Packers (8-3) didn't score after the first quarter. "We realized what was at stake and realized it was another brick in the road to the Super Bowl that has to come through Tampa," Sapp said.

(09-28-08) Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Derrick Brooks hasn't been himself this season. A sore hamstring has seen to that, feeding the perception that the 10-time Pro Bowl linebacker and Tampa Bay's aging defense are slowing down. Aaron Rodgers will tell you otherwise. Brooks had one of three interceptions off Green Bay's young quarterback and also forced a fumble that Jermaine Phillips returned 38 yards for a touchdown, helping the Bucs beat the Packers. Rogers threw for two touchdowns to Greg Jennings, who had six receptions for 109 yards, but was sacked three times and left the game for one series with a shoulder injury midway through the fourth quarter. The fourth-year pro returned briefly after Green Bay fell behind 23-21 on Matt Bryant's third field goal of the game. But he was hit from the blindside as he launched a pass on second down, and the ball was picked off by Gaines Adams with just over two minutes to go. Earnest Graham put away Tampa Bay's third straight victory with Brian Griese at quarterback, breaking a 47-yard run to the Packers 1 and then scoring on the next play to make it 30-21. He finished with 111 yards rushing on 20 carries. Matt Flynn was 2-of-5 for 6 yards on the two possessions he replaced Rodgers. The Packers finished with 181 yards total offense and just eight first downs - one in the second half, on Rodgers' long TD throw to Jennings. Rodgers had gone 157 pass attempts without throwing an interception -- the third longest streak in team history -- before tossing the first of his three on Sunday. Griese posted a passer rating of 36.0 in the victory. The Packers' Charles Woodson returned a pick for a touchdown for the sixth time in his career and the second time this season. On a good note I was at the Brewers Cubs game this day as the Crew won its way into the playoffs!
