Sunday, October 27, 1985 - Home Game

LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 14 New England Patriots 32

The Buccaneers took a 14–0 lead on a 1-yard James Wilder run, but barely crossed midfield for the rest of the game. Wilder's touchdown was his 33rd and gave him 198 career points, which made him the franchise scoring leader ahead of Bill Capece, with 196.

Injuries were again a problem, with starting linebackers Brantley and Davis leaving the game for the second week in a row, along with starting tackle George Yarno and kick returner Leon Bright. Bright's knee injury required surgery. Injured guard Sean Farrell did not play at all.

The game eliminated the Buccaneers from the NFC Central Division race, and had the second-smallest home attendance in team history, 34,661.
