Buccaneers 23 Cardinals 7
September 6, 1992
Sam Wyche began his Tampa Bay coaching career with a comfortable home win over the then-Phoenix Cardinals thanks to a ball-control offense that did not have a turnover and a stifling defense that thwarted three different opposition quarterbacks.
RB Reggie Cobb and TE Ron Hall both scored from a yard out, the latter on a touchdown pass from QB Vinny Testaverde and three K Ken Willis field goals were all the points the Buccaneers would need on the day.
Former Bucs QB Chris Chandler saw some playing time for the Cardinals in relief of QB Timm Rosenbach but neither was effective with Tampa Bay rookie DE Santana Dotson starting his bid for the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Month with a pair of sacks on his professional debut.
Rushing: Cobb 18-70, Anderson 8-41, Highsmith 5-15, Testaverde 2-2.
Passing: Testaverde 25-14-167-0-1.
Receiving: Dawsey 6-76, G.Anderson 2-31, Hall 2-16, Highsmith 2-14, Drewrey 1-21, Hawkins 1-9.
