Keyshawn Johnson's first-quarter touchdown was the first by the Bucs offense in eight quarters. It also was the first Tampa Bay scored on its first possession this season.
Derrick Brooks' 34-yard touchdown return was the first of his NFL career. He had three at Florida State.
The Bucs' time of possession on their first drive in the third quarter (8:35) was longer than their time of possession in the first half (8:07).
Bucs running back Aaron Stecker had the first reception of his career, a 15-yarder in the fourth quarter.
The Bucs had two sacks, giving them 37. The team is on pace to eclipse the NFL single-season mark (72, 1984 Bears).
Tampa Bay has forced 17 turnovers leading to 73 points, with three turnovers leading to touchdowns against Minnesota. In the previous three games, it had three turnovers leading to 14 points.
The Bucs gained 413 yards in total offense, surpassing the 400-yard mark for the first time since gaining 428 yards in a November 1998 game against Detroit.
The Bucs and Vikings have split the past eight season series.
Tampa Bay has won seven of its past nine NFC Central games.
