Sunday, September 20, 1987 - Away Game

LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 03 Chicago Bears 20

The Buccaneers forced four turnovers and held Bears running back Walter Payton to 24 yards on 15 carries, but the offense, who also committed four turnovers, was ineffective.

One of Payton's runs was a 1-yard touchdown that broke Jim Brown's all-time record of 106 touchdowns. Payton also caught a 9-yard touchdown pass that clinched the game with 3:20 remaining.

The Buccaneers had only a field goal to show for four possessions inside the Bears' 30-yard line. Vinny Testaverde made his NFL debut after Steve DeBerg left the game in the fourth quarter with a sprained medial collateral ligament
