Sunday November 26, 2000 - Home Game

WON - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31 Buffalo Bills 17

Tampa Bay Buccaneers gained less than 200 yards of offense and allowed 7 sacks, but so-called "Buc Ball" still prevailed over the visiting Bills.

Warrick Dunn scored two rushing touchdowns, Karl "The Truth" Williams scored a 73-yard punt return touchdown, and Derrick Brooks had an outstanding day with 20 tackles.

The game proved more competitive than the final score indicated. The score was 10-7 at the end of three quarters.

Dunn's first touchdown made the score 17-7, when the Bills responded when future Buccaneers backup quarterback Rob Johnson threw a touchdown to Eric Moulds. Williams's punt return made the score 24-14 late. On the ensuing possession for the Bills, Brooks wrapped up Johnson and violently threw him to the ground with a hit that knocked him out of the game, but miraculously, Johnson flipped the ball to Shawn Bryson and a sure sack became a 15 yard gain to set up a field goal to make it 24-17 with about 2:30 to go.

The Bills attempted an onside kick, but the Bucs recovered. Dunn's game clinching touchdown run came two plays later.
