Monday, December 7, 1998 - Home Game

WON - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24 Green Bay Packers 22

Tampa Bay hosted Green Bay in their first Monday Night Football home game since 1982.

The Buccaneers forced 8 fumbles, and sacked Brett Favre 8 times. Late in the first quarter, Trent Dilfer connected to Jacquez Green for a 64-yard touchdown pass. Minutes later, at the beginning of the second quarter, Dilfer passed to Bert Emanuel in a nearly identical 62-yard touchdown pass.

Leading 17–15 in the fourth quarter, Dilfer scrambled through the middle of the Packers defensive line to score a 6-yard touchdown, and a 24–15 lead. Green bay would trim the deficit to 24–22, but the Buccaneers held on to win.

Tampa Bay improved to 6–7 on the season.
