We talked about this last week, what really turned around the Bucs under Dungy. This game was the second win of the season, and this game started the winning streak. While most consider that the win over San Diego was the start of it all because it ended a terrible streak of poor performances on the west coast. I tend to agree, but it all started here the week before, when Cole Ford missed a FG that would have won it for the Raiders in regulation.
The Bucs had held the last several teams to under or at 13 points, so the signs were there for a turn around. As I said, this 2009 team is not quite there defensively, we dont have all the pieces like that '96 team did.
But one way or another, the change started, On this day.
