Sunday October 14, 1979 - Home Game

LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 14 New Orleans Saints 42

Archie Manning, who entered the game leading the NFL in passing yardage, went 11 of 14 with a touchdown each rushing and passing. Mike Strachan rushed for two touchdowns.

No other team in 1979 scored more than three TDs on the Bucs, yet New Orleans somehow doubled that number in one half. The Saints gained over 230 yards rushing on the day
