|Click here for what the Bucs thought about that decisive flag |
Another one-point game, the first time in NFL history any team had played three of them in a row. This game was broadcast on Armed Forces Radio and I remember the signal fading out just before Chris Jacke's winning fieldgoal.
The Packers got an amazing break when the Bucs were called for a dubious penalty on fourth down that set up the winning kick, one that crept over the crossbar into a strong wind.
And the Packers had lined up in an illegal formation on that fourth down play that didn't get called.
