Sunday November 10, 1985 - Home Game

WON - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 16 St. Louis Cardinals 00

Donald Igwebuike kicked three field goals as the Buccaneers recorded their first victory under Leeman Bennett.

James Wilder rushed for 120 yards, while Steve DeBerg passed for 196 yards and a touchdown to Adger Armstrong. The Cardinals' offense was ineffective without injured starters Ottis Anderson and Roy Green. It was the Buccaneers' first shutout since their division-clinching 3–0 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Dec. 16, 1979.

The game was attended by a crowd of 34,736, the third-smallest in team history. Players afterward expressed relief, rather than joy, at getting their first win. Igwebuike, Wilder, and David Logan were presented with game balls after the game, the first ever awarded by the Buccaneers.
