Sunday, October 22, 2006 - Home Game

WON - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 23 Philadelphia Eagles 21

The Buccaneers entered week 7 against an Eagles team looking to build upon their 14–13 win over the Bengals.

The Buccaneers defense stepped up big early, particularly Ronde Barber, who returned two Donovan McNabb interceptions for touchdowns. The Bucs however blew a 17-point lead when Brian Westbrook scored on a 52-yard touchdown with 33 seconds left.

With two timeouts remaining, the Buccaneers drove to the Philadelphia 45-yard line with 4 seconds left. Kicker Matt Bryant then converted on an improbable, franchise record 62-yard field goal as time expired to give Tampa Bay a 23–21 victory. Ironically, the kick was the same distance Bengals' Shayne Graham missed from the previous week. The Bucs improved to 2–4.

The kick was one yard short of the NFL record (63 yards) and the second-longest game-winning field goal in NFL history.
