Sunday September 21, 2003 - Away Game

WON - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31 Atlanta Falcons 10

Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was sidelined due to an injury in the preseason. Doug Johnson took over, and the Buccaneers dominated. They held Doug Johnson to only 95 passing yards, and three interceptions. His fourth quarter replacement, Kurt Kittner did not fare any better.

The Tampa Bay offense rebounded with Warren Sapp playing tight end and scoring his first career offensive touchdown catch. Mike Alstott put the game well out of reach with two third-quarter touchdown runs.
