Boyd’s 1997 Replay – Game 57

Tampa Bay rallies to beat the Cards and stay undefeated!

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers finished the 1996 season winning five of their last seven games. Head Coach Tony Dungy has duplicated that success early in the 1997 campaign. In front of a sell-out crowd at Houlihan’s Stadium, Bucs rookie running back Warrick Dunn had the fans on their feet with an exciting 73-yard break-away touchdown run to put the Buccaneers ahead for the first time in the game 15-14 with 5 minutes to play. Errict Rhett ran in the two-point conversion and the Bucs took a 17-10 lead. The defense shut the Cardinals down the rest of the way. The Bucs are now 5-0 and will travel to Lambeau Field next week to take on the World Champion Packers. The Cards fell to 0-4.
