Sunday, December 2, 2001 - Away Game

WON - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 16 Cincinnati Bengals 13

Following the short week, Buccaneers traveled to Cincinnati to take on the less-than-mediocre Bengals. Despite the poor opposition, Tampa Bay's only touchdown came from a blocked punt. Martin Gramatica scored two field goals, and the Buccaneers held a 13–6 lead, With 8 seconds left in regulation, Jon Kitna connected with Corey Dillon for a game-tying 6-yard touchdown pass, and forced overtime.

In the overtime period, Tampa Bay won the toss and received. They drove to the Cincinnati 35-yard line, where they punted. Punter Mark Royals pinned the Bengals at their own 4-yard line.

On the first play of the Bengals drive, Dillon fumbled the ball, and it was recovered by John Lynch at the 3-yard line. Without hesitation, Gramatica came on to the field, and kicked a chip-shot 21-yard field goal to win the game.
