Sunday December 27, 2009 - Away Game

WON - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20 New Orleans Saints 17

Buccaneers home game loss to division rivals New Orleans.

The Saints dominated the first quarter and entered halftime riding on a 17–3 lead.

Tampa Bay scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, including a 77-yard kick return by Micheal Spurlock, to tie the game at 17. As time expired, Garrett Hartley attempted a 37-yard field goal that would have salvaged the game for the Saints, but the kick hooked left.

In overtime, Buccaneers won the coin toss, received the kickoff, and drove down the field to win the game with a field goal, for a final score of 20–17.

This was the first time in franchise history that the Buccaneers defeated the eventual Super Bowl champions.
