LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 00 Cincinnati Bengals 21

With four defensive starters out with injuries, the Buccaneers spotted the Cincinnati Bengals a 14–0 first-quarter lead.

The defense came together for the last three quarters, with the only points coming from Tommy Casanova’s 25-yard fumble return for a touchdown. Ken Anderson, the AFC’s leading passer, was held to 98 yards passing.

Lacking healthy linebackers, the Buccaneers abandoned their 3–4 defense in favor of a 4–3.

The Buccaneers held a 191–174 yardage advantage over the AFC Central-leading Bengals in the final 45 minutes.

The Bengals declined to hand out game balls to any of their players after the win.

"It was just a ball game" shrugged coach Bill Johnson and John McKay's take on the game:" We get penalised every five seconds. I think we played better than we have been playing."
