Sunday, October 1, 1989 - Away Game

LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 03 Minnesota Vikings 17

It was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense that maintained a respectable losing score as the 54,817 Viking fans were hoping for a blow-out.

The Buccaneers rushed for six yards or less within nine of twelve offensive drives as well as ending three other possessions with a fumble, punt and missed field goal.

Asked whether he saw anything good in the game, Bucs coach Ray Perkins replied, “No, but I missed the halftime show.”
