Sunday November 29, 1987 - Away Game

LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 03 Los Angeles Rams 35

Rams running back Charles White rushed for 137 yards and two touchdowns, while quarterback Jim Everett threw for 208 yards and another two touchdowns.

The Buccaneers only entered Rams territory twice. According to coach Perkins, "The only guy who played with guts was Steve DeBerg".

With two starting defensive linemen injured, the Buccaneers were forced to use three rookies, two of whom were making their NFL debuts. Early in the second quarter, a Mel Owens interception return set the Rams up for their second score, a run by White. White scored the Rams' third touchdown shortly afterward. After a Donald Igwebuike field goal early in the second half, the Buccaneers attempted an onside kick, but failed to gain possession. They never again crossed midfield.

Sacked three times, DeBerg suffered a hyperextended back that resulted in his being replaced by Vinny Testaverde with 10:44 to play. "Beginning next week, we'll start making preparations for next year", Perkins said following the loss.
