ON THIS DAY RECAP: 10/12/1997, A day John Lynch would like to forget!

Donnie Abraham could not catch up to the great Barry Sanders On This Day.

In the late 80's and early 90's Orange days, the Bucs would more than often have an opposing running back tear them up. Heck most of Barry Sanders highlight tapes are of him scooting through orange clad defenders. But this was 1997, a New Day in Tampa Bay! The Bucs had beaten Detroit earlier in week 3, and Warrick Dunn out Barry-ed Barry! Well Sanders got his revenge. Lynch talks about this day when he fondly remembers his nemesis, as Barry Sanders put in another day at the office; 24 carries for 215 yards. 

Fortunately, the Bucs remembered 2 months later when they faced him in the playoffs!
