Quick hits

Andre Hastings made his regular-season debut in a Bucs uniform, returning punts and entering the game when the Bucs used four-receiver sets.

The Vikings' first punt came at 6:23 of the third quarter.

The Bucs' 19-play, 71-yard drive in the second quarter tied a season mark for most plays in a scoring drive.

Entering Week 6, Bucs receivers were fifth in the league in yards per reception at 13.1.

Vikings coach Dennis Green recruited John Lynch to Stanford when he was coach of the Cardinals in 1989.

The Bucs got their initial first down at 8:14 of the first quarter on a 13-yard run by Warrick Dunn on their third possession.

Vikings running back Robert Smith moved into second place on the Vikings' all-time rushing list with a four-yard run in the third quarter and has 5,784 for his career. Bill Brown had held second with 5,757 yards. Chuck Foreman, who played from 1973-79, had 5,879.
