Sunday, October 26, 2003 - Away Game

WON - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 10 Dallas Cowboys 06

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Ryan Leaf experiment ended about as fast as it started. The Buccaneers signed the troubled quarterback during the offseason. The franchise was intrigued by his physical talent and planned to develop his abilities more slowly by having him watch and learn. However, Leaf's wrist still had not healed, and he refused to have surgery despite doctors' strong recommendations. After mediocre performances in the Buccaneers' four preseason games, the club asked Leaf to accept a lower salary. He refused, and the club released him just five days before the start of the 2001 season.

Brad Johnson started his first game for the Buccaneers, and led them to a 10–6 victory. Despite holding a poor Cowboys club to only 127 yards, a fourth-quarter touchdown run by Johnson was needed to seal the victory. It was the Bucs' first ever victory in Dallas.
