For the third straight week, the Bucs could not clinch their NFC Central Division title as five more Doug WIlliams interceptions stalled the offense on the West Coast.

This game was notable for it being OJ Simpson's final home game in the NFL and several tributes were paid to the star running back at the end of the game.
