Sunday, December 9, 2001 - Home Game

WON - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 15 Detroit Lions 12

The Lions came into the game 0–11 and were led by rookie quarterback Mike McMahon. The Lions never managed to reach the endzone, however, Tampa Bay's offense struggled all day and found themselves trailing 12–7.

With just over a minute to go, the Buccaneers faced 4th & 8 at the Detroit 28-yard line. Brad Johnson completed a 15-yard pass to Keyshawn Johnson to keep the drive alive. With 45 seconds to go, the Johnson and Johnson duo connected again, this time for a game-winning touchdown pass.
