Sunday, November 4, 1984 - Away Game

LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24 Minnesota Vikings 27

***HISTORIC MARKER*** This was the game leading into coach John McKay announcing his retirement after feauding with Buccaneers owner Hugh Culverhouse over the cost of signing Stenerud in the pre-season.

The Buccaneers could not defeat a struggling Vikings team, despite James Wilder's 146 rushing and 46 receiving yards, and a Steve DeBerg touchdown pass to Kevin House that tied the score with 1:03 remaining in the game.

The Vikings were held to an incompletion on fourth-and-nine on their ensuing possession, but a pass-interference penalty on Chris Washington allowed the Vikings to retain possession, and set up Jan Stenerud's game-winning field goal with 2 seconds left.
