Sunday, November 1, 1998 - Home Game

WON - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27 Minnesota Vikings 24

***HISTORIC MARKER*** Second time in Buccaneers history they didn't have to punt.

The Vikings entered week 9 at Tampa Bay undefeated at 7–0 and the Buccaneers would become the only team to beat them in the 15-1 season.

Derrick Brooks intercepted Randal Cunningham, setting up Warrick Dunn's first touchdown run. A back and forth game saw the score tied 17–17 at halftime.

Minnesota took a 24–17 lead in the third quarter, but Tampa Bay came back in the fourth. A field goal followed by a Mike Alstott touchdown run with just under six minutes remaining gave the Bucs a 27–24 lead.

The Buccaneers had two rushers over 100 yards: Alstott (128) and Dunn (115), with Alstott sealing the game late with a rush of 38 yards.

Tampa Bay defeated Minnesota 27–24, the Vikings' first (and only) loss of the regular season. The Bucs remained at 0.500, improving to 4–4, and were now 4–0 at Raymond James Stadium.
