Sunday, September 4, 1988 - Home Game

LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 14 Philadelphia Eagles 41

The cheers that greeted Vinny Testaverde as he took the field turned to boos after his first three passes, all incompletions.

The Philadelphia Eagles took a 34–0 halftime lead, aided by Testaverde's three interceptions, to which he added two more in the second half. Randall Cunningham scored two touchdowns passing and one rushing before sitting out the second half, along with Anthony Toney, Mike Quick, Reggie White, and Keith Byars. Quick and Keith Jackson caught touchdown passes, while Toney rushed for one and Terry Hoage added to his two interceptions by scoring on a fake punt.

It was the Eagles' highest point total since 1981.
