Monday, September 28, 1998 - Away Game

LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 06 Detroit Lions 27

On Monday Night Football, Tampa Bay faced Detroit at the Silverdome.

Despite clinging to a 6–3 deficit at halftime, Tampa Bay's sputtering offense and defensive miscues cost any chance at victory. Barry Sanders rushed for 131 yards, Bryant Westbrook returned an interception 34 yards for a touchdown, and Terry Fair returned a Lions record 105-yard kickoff return touchdown.

Two apparent touchdown passes by Trent Dilfer were called back for penalty, and Tampa Bay fell 27–6.
