Buccaneers quick hits

Compiled by Times staff writer

© St. Petersburg Times, published October 9, 2000

Bucs are making their first of two appearances this season on Monday Night Football, with Al, Dan and Dennis slated to visit Tampa for the Dec. 18 game against the St. Louis Rams. Tampa Bay is 3-3 on Monday night, 3-1 at home and 0-2 on the road.

Tampa Bay leads the league with 22 sacks and is on pace for 70, which would shatter the team mark of 44 set in 1997.

Bucs' 127 points through five games are the most to open a season in franchise history.

Vikings lead series 29-15. Teams have split the season series since '93. Bucs have not won in the Metrodome since '97.

Bucs have not dropped three games in a row since 1988 (Nov. 8-22) when they lost to the Titans, Jaguars and Lions.
