Sunday, October 18, 1981 - Away Game

LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 16 Oakland Raiders 18

The Raiders entered the game having set a postwar NFL record of three consecutive games without scoring.

Breakdowns on Buccaneers special teams helped the Raiders to take a 15–0 halftime lead, and eventually to win the game.

The Buccaneers could not manage even a first down on offense until Doug Williams' 77-yard touchdown pass to Kevin House in the third quarter. They took the lead on a Jimmie Giles touchdown reception and a Bill Capece field goal.

After the Raiders answered with a Chris Bahr field goal, Tampa Bay drove to the Raider 14-yard line, where Ted Hendricks deflected Capece's potentially game-winning last-minute field goal attempt.

The loss dropped the Buccaneers out of their first-place tie with the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Central.
