Sunday, October 3, 1993 - Home Game

WON - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27 Detroit Lions 10

The Buccaneers lost momentum and fell behind by a touchdown and a field goal, with a third quarter rally Tampa Bay scored three touchdowns as the pirate ship sailed to a 27-10 victory over the Lions before 40,794 fanitacal BuccaneersFans in Tampa Stadium.

It was a surprise comeback for the Buccaneers (1-3), who overcame a turnover, the costly reversal of an official's call, during a 10-0 Lions lead.

Buccaneers Fans will remember this was the Tampa Bays' first victory since 1987 with a starting quarterback other than Testaverde. "I've been around here four years, and we've been waiting for the game to get us over the hump," Cobb said. "Maybe this is the one. We had every situation imaginable. We were down. Taking the lead. Having to protect it. There were so many different scenarios, and we rose to every challenge."
