Sunday October 31, 1993 - Away Game

WON - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31 Atlanta Falcons 24

There are streaks and there are streaks, but Bucs receiver Horace Copeland is in a zone of his own. The past four passes aimed at Copeland, the mercurial Miami rookie, have turned into touchdowns. Copeland came off the bench in the third quarter to help Tampa Bay build a 31-3 lead by catching scoring passes of 60 and 44 yards on consecutive plays from scrimmage.

At one point, the Bucs were forced to hang on for dear life as Bobby Hebert brought the Falcons back from the dead. Atlanta had the ball at the Tampa 9-yard line late in the fourth quarter, but Chidi Ahanotu batted down Hebert's fourth-down pass to preserve the buccaneers victory.
