Sunday, November 3, 2002 - Home Game

WON - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 38 Minnesota Vikings 24

***HISTORIC MARKER*** With the win, the Buccaneers moved to 7–2, tying the 1979 team for the best start in franchise history.

Brad Johnson returned to the lineup, throwing five touchdown passes (including three to Keyshawn Johnson for 133 yards), and a total of 313 yards, as the Buccaneers rolled 38–24 over the visiting Vikings.

Under Brad Johnson's jersey on Sunday was a flak jacket, designed to protect the two fractured ribs on his left side.

With Green Bay (6–1) playing on Monday night and New Orleans (6–2) having the week off, Tampa Bay is the first NFC team to reach seven wins. They hold a half-game edge over the Saints in the NFC South rac.
