ON THIS DAY IN BUC HISTORY13 Nov 2005 The two-point gamble gameTampa Bay Bucs 36 Washington Redskins 35Click here for more details on this gameOne of the most dramatic wins in franchise history as the Bucs pulled to within a point on Chris Simms’ TD pass to Edell Shepherd and then coach Jon Gruden passed up the PAT to tie the score to go for a two-point conversion to win it. Mike Alstott was adjudged to have broken the plane on his dive although the jury remains out on that one. Either way, the Bucs took the win in spectacular style.

THE BEST BUCCANEER WIDE RECEIVER DUOSMuch of the talk around the NFL this season about the Buccaneers has been the receiving combination of Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Both are within striking distance of reaching 1,000 yards with seven games to go and Mike's 1,524 yard franchise record could be in serious jeopardy from one or both of them come the end of December.Passing yardages cannot really compared across the 44-year history of the franchise because the NFL has changed so much in that time.
