Sunday, November 8, 1981 - Away Game

LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 10 Minnesota Vikings 25

John McKay said, "that might be the poorest game we've ever played", after the Buccaneers were able to control the ball for only 19½ of the game's 60 minutes.

A 95-yard second-quarter drive gave the Vikings a 13–0 lead and used up 9:04 worth of clock time, while keeping the ball away from the Buccaneer offense and forcing them to stand on the sideline in the freezing wind.

The Vikings rushed for 205 yards, led by Ted Brown's career-high 129 yards on 31 carries.
