LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 07 Minnesota Vikings 26

***HISTORIC MARKER*** #32 James Wilder became the first Buccaneer to pass the 4,000-yard offensive rushing mark.

An attempted rally from a 19–0 deficit died when a holding penalty called back a Kevin House pass reception at the Vikings' 3-yard line. The Buccaneers committed 10 penalties in all, for a total of 76 yards.

In a 1:42 stretch of the third quarter, the two teams combined for five turnovers in nine plays, with James Wilder afterward fumbling on his next possession. Kick returner Phil Freeman broke a wrist and linebacker Dennis Johnson bruised a shoulder, both while making tackles. Craig Curry suffered an eye injury, and Scot Brantley injured a shoulder.
