Sunday, November 11, 1984 - Home Game

WON - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20 New York Giants 17

The Buccaneers shocked a Giants team that had taken a share of the NFC East lead by beating the Cowboys and Redskins in the two previous weeks.

Inspired by a team meeting in which the players resolved to fight to maintain their respectability as a team, the Buccaneers shut down the Giants' deep passing game and held Lawrence Taylor in check, producing a win that only appeared close because of a last-minute Giants touchdown.

James Wilder's 99 yards on 34 carries gave him 1,062 for the season, making him only the second 1,000-yard rusher in Buccaneer history. Steve DeBerg threw for 238 yards, including a 10-yard touchdown pass to Kevin House.

Giants players refused to admit to having suffered a letdown, instead crediting the Buccaneers with having played a better game.
