Sunday, October 8, 1989 - Home Game

WON - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 42 Chicago Bears 35

After thirteen consecutive losses against the Bears the Buccaneers, in full sail offensively, sailed to victory. The offensive attack was not without errors, a fumbled snap on the extra point didn't lose our wind and as Commentator Dick Stockton described the Buccaneers "they could do no wrong".
