Sunday, January 2, 2000 - Away Game

WON - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20 Chicago Bears 06

Tampa Bay traveled to Soldier Field to take on the Bears, with a division title on the line.

Tampa Bay easlily handled the 6–9 Bears, and won their first NFC Central title since 1981. Shaun King threw for 178 yards, and one touchdown. Mike Alstott scored one touchdown run.

The Buccaneers earned a first-round bye for the playoffs. Longtime Buccaneer player Paul Gruber suffered a broken leg, and missed the rest of the season, and it would ultimately be his final NFL game.
