Sunday, December 8, 1996 - Home Game

WON - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24 Washington Redskins 10

Tampa Bay Buccaneer Paul Gruber, appearing in his team-record 133rd game, celebrated with the Buccaneers as they dominated the Redskins for their fourth win in five weeks.

The Buccaneers defense set up the first score, as Martin Mayhew’s interception of a Gus Frerotte pass on the 39 yard line. During the third quarter, the wind hit our sails on the first two possessions. After a 19-yard field goal, Mike Alstott powered the A-Train fora 67-yard drive by handling the ball on five of nine plays, the final being a 13-yard blast around Gruber’s end for the touchdown.
