The Broncos, 11 point favourites against the spread, tallied 38 points in the second half to bounce back from an uninspiring first half which saw the score tied at 10-10 at the interval.

Two scores in a minute, Steve Ramsey's 71-yard scoring strike to Haven Moses and Randy Gradishar's interception return of a Steve Spurrier pass, put the Denver victory in motion, although the Bucs' best chance in the second half, a Calvin Peterson interception, went to naught when the linebacker's knee gave way whilst returning Ramsey's pass down the left sideline.

John McKay's take on the game:" I think they wanted to show me that I'm really a college coach."
