LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 13 Green Bay Packers 20
The longtime rival Green Bay Packers came to town in November, and Tampa Bay appeared to be poised for a win. A 17-play, 98-yard fourth-quarter touchdown drive by the Packers wore out a tired Buccaneer defense, and Tampa Bay lost to Green Bay for the first time at Raymond James Stadium. The loss dropped Tampa Bay to 4–6, and severely hampered their playoff chances.
During the game, Martin Gramatica became the franchise's all-time scoring leader. One distinction came to an end, however. The Tampa Bay defense had, one week earlier, set the all-time NFL record for consecutive game with a quarterback sack. They achieved no sacks in this game, and the streak ended at 69 games.
Wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson finished the game with only three catches for 34 yards. He was also heckled and booed by fans during the game. The following day, after several weeks of growing intra-team tension, Johnson was deactivated with pay from the playing roster for the balance of the season.
