Sunday October 9, 1994 - Away Game

LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 13 Atlanta Falcons 34

The Falcons quickly jumped into a 24-0 lead, Trent threw his first NFL interception and followed it up with two more in quick succession as both teams played fast and loose with the football. For the Buccaneers it was a three quarterback roulette game each saw time but the result was long decided before third-stringer Casey Weldon got his turn behind center.

Meanwhile, the Buccaneers defense was no match for the high-flying Falcons receivers and reborn quarterback Jeff George, who threw for 269 yards and two touchdowns. Playing defense without a true linebacker and seven defensive backs, the Buccaneers also had trouble slowing 265-pound running back Craig "Ironhead" Heyward, who rushed for 87 yards and two touchdowns.
