Sunday, October 15, 1989 - Home Game

LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 16 Detroit Lions 17

Buccaneers quarterback Testaverde missed the game due to an injury sustained at the end of the Bears game and back-up Joe Ferguson failed to bring the Buccaneers over 200 yards in total offense.

The Tampa Bay defense carrys the blame for allowing the final 76-yard drive in eight plays allowing Peete to win it for the Lions. Rodney Peete's TD scramble with 23 seconds left sealed the Buccaneers loss.
