LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 06 Cleveland Browns 22

Former quarterback Vinny Testaverde, now with the Cleveland Browns, was ready for revenge in his first game and win against his former Buccaneers.

Offensively, Tampa Bay found the scoreboard just once - on a fourth-quarter 2-yard run by Errict Rhett (23 carries for 89 yards) - but the Buccaneers did move the football, not producing points, between the 20s with 78 and 66 yard drives that produced a blocked field goal and an end zone interception by cornerback Don Griffin. After a 10-play 80-yard drive, that included a couple sacks, Dilfer was confronted to convert a third-and-35 situation with a 38-yard pass to Courtney Hawkins to move the chains. The Buccaneers played well on third downs, converting 8 of 14 (57 percent).

the Buccaneers special teams failed against the Browns. A botched punt snap by long snapper Ed Brady set up the Browns' second 23 yard field goal by Matt Stover. Burnett block a Michael Husted 22-yard field-goal attempt costing Tampa Bay much needed points and moral boost. McCardell's second touchdown, a 32-yarder that came with 16 seconds remaining in the first half made it 19-0. McCardell (six catches for 79 yards).
