With Martin Gramatica converting a fourth-quarter fumble into a 51-yard field goal, the Bucs have 86 points off 22 turnovers. Last season, they scored 90 off 31 turnovers.

The Bucs have won three straight at home against Green Bay for the first time. The Bucs have won eight of their past nine home division games and are 16-5 at Raymond James Stadium since it opened in 1998.

The Bucs are averaging 128.7 yards running in this three-game winning streak. In three prior losses, they averaged 81.3.

The Bucs failed to score in the first quarter for the first time since Week 2.

For the first time since Week 1, kick returner Aaron Stecker was inactive. Karl Williams returned kicks. Center Kevin Dogins and cornerback Floyd Young also were declared inactive before the game.

Fullback Charles Kirby was active for the first time in his Bucs career. He played on kick return and kick coverage units.

Keyshawn Johnson has four touchdown receptions in the past three games.

The Bucs' past nine offensive touchdowns have come on Shaun King passes. The last time the offense scored on a run was King's 11-yard scamper against Minnesota in Week 6.

Reidel Anthony has scored on 40 percent of his receptions four touchdowns in 10 catches.

With his 42-yard field goal in the third quarter, Ryan Longwell became the most accurate kicker in NFL history. He needed 100 field goals to qualify and has made 101 of 119 attempts, a percentage of 84.9. Olindo Mare of Miami is second at 83.3 percent (105 of 126).

For the second time this season, the Bucs did not score in the third quarter (vs. Washington, Week 5).

With his 54-field goal, Martin Gramatica set a team season record with his fourth field goal of 50 or more yards. Gramatica, who added a 51-yarder, has five beyond 50 yards.

Mike Alstott rushed 83 times for 299 yards (3.6 a carry) in the first five games, but 41 times for 154 yards (3.76) in the past five.

For the third time this season, the Bucs did not allow a sack.
