LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 03 Philadelphia Eagles 21

POST-SEASON: NFC Divisional Wild-Card Game

The Eagles defense held Tampa Bay to only 199 total yards and 11 first downs.

The Buccaneers scored first early in the second quarter with Martin Gramatica's 29-yard field goal. But late in the period, the Eagles' Hugh Douglas forced Tampa Bay quarterback Shaun King to fumble, and Mike Mamula recovered the loose ball at the Buccaneers 15-yard line. The turnover set up Philadelphia quarterback Donovan McNabb's 5-yard touchdown run. Tampa Bay then punted on their next possession and the Eagles marched 69 yards on 8 plays to take a 14–3 on Na Brown's 5-yard touchdown reception with 12 seconds left in the half.

Philadelphia then shut out the Buccaneers in the second half, while McNabb threw a 2-yard pass to Jeff Thomason with less than a minute left in the game to seal the victory. The Eagle's victory meant for the 35th consecutive year that the team hosting the Super Bowl would not be playing in it.
