Team Drive Started Drive Ended Plays Yards Result
Florida 15:00 1st Quarter 10:05 1st Quarter 8 Plays 45 Yards Mcnair 10 yd. TD pass to Ceaser (PAT good).

Andrew's Analysis: The Bobcats go with a San Wyche-esque no-huddle offense.

Tampa Bay 10:05 Quarter 7:02 1st Quarter 4 Plays 24 Yards Willis 4-yd. pass to LaFrance (Nittmo kick).

Andrew's Analysis: LaFrance sets them up with a 30-yd. kickoff return and then knocks them down with a diving catch in the corner of the endzone.

Florida 7:02 1st Quarter 4:31 1st Quarter 4 Plays -6 Yards Huerta 53-yd. FG attempt short.

Andrew's Analysis: Storm starts turning up their patented pass rush.

Tampa Bay 4:31 1st Quarter 1:21 1st Quarter 4 Plays 35 Yards Willis 4-yd TD pass to Samuels (kick).

Andrew's Analysis: It would have been a touchdown on the first play if not for pass interference by Tony Wells.

Florida 1:21 1st Quarter 13:46 2nd Quarter 4 Plays 10 Yards McNair pass intercepted by Rowland.

Andrew's Analysis: Another big play by Rowland.

Andrew's Analysis: The fumbled snap---the problem that just won't go away.

Florida 13:23 2nd Quarter 10:48 2nd Quarter 4 Plays 3 Yards Huerta 58-yd FG attempt short.

Andrew's Analysis: A good defensive stop manages to cover the offense's ass.

Tampa Bay 10:48 2nd Quarter 8:16 2nd Quarter 4 Plays -6 Yards Nittmo 65-yd FG attempt short.

Andrew's Analysis: The Storm's offense is dysfunctional right now.

Florida 8:16 2nd Quarter 2:12 2nd Quarter 9 Plays 32 Yards Huerta 23-yd FG.

Andrew's Analysis: Storm gives this drive away with penalties.

Tampa Bay 2:12 2nd Quarter 0:22 2nd Quarter 6 Plays 45 Yards Willis 9-yd TD pass to LaFrance (Nittmo kick).

Andrew's Analysis: The Storm's sleep-walking offense finally woke up.

Florida 0:22 2nd Quarter 0:00 2nd Quarter 3 Plays 7 Yards END OF HALF.

Andrew's Analysis: Mercifully, perhaps the Storm's most lethargic half has come to an end.

Tampa Bay 15:00 3rd Quarter 11:10 3rd Quarter 4 Plays 40 Yards Willis 28-yd TD pass to Walker (kick).

Andrew's Analysis: Maybe that'll wake up the crowd.

Florida 11:10 3rd Quarter 9:41 3rd Quarter 2 Plays 8 Yards Fumble recovered by Bowden.

Andrew's Analysis: Bobcats seem to be as asleep at the wheel as the Storm is.

Tampa Bay 9:41 3rd Quarter 7:10 3rd Quarter 4 Plays 7 Yards Nittmo 22-yd FG.

Andrew's Analysis: At least we got something out of the turnover.

Florida 7:10 3rd Quarter 4:08 3rd Quarter 5 Plays -2 Yards Huerta 55-yd FG attempt short.

Andrew's Analysis: Johnnie Harris stupidly got himself ejected by shoving an official to the ground, but it may have woken up the crowd.

Tampa Bay 4:08 3rd Quarter 0:00 3rd Quarter 6 Plays 36 Yards Willis 8-yd TD pass to Samuels (Nittmo kick).

Andrew's Analysis: P.T. spreads the ball around to four different receivers.

Florida 15:00 4th Quarter 10:35 4th Quarter 5 Plays 41 Yards D'Augustino 2-yd TD run (McNair pass).

Andrew's Analysis: Bobcats find momentum when Perkins goes after the ball instead of a tackle, allowing a 33-ys pass.

Tampa Bay 10:35 4th Quarter 4:12 4th Quarter 8 Plays 45 Yards Willis 8-yd TD pass to Thomas (Nittmo kick).

Andrew's Analysis: Storm goes on their most time-consuming drive of the day to finish off Bobcats.

Tampa Bay 4:12 4th Quarter 2:24 4th Quarter 2 Plays 7 Yards Adams 7-yd TD pass to Samuels (Nittmo kick).

Andrew's Analysis: Might as well pour it on.

Tampa Bay 2:24 4th Quarter 1:15 4th Quarter 0 Plays 0 Yards Woods recovers fumble for TD (Nittmo kick).

Andrew's Analysis: This team is a lethal weapon and should be declared illegal.

Tampa Bay 1:15 4th Quarter 0:00 4th Quarter 5 Plays 12 Yards END OF GAME.

Andrew's Analysis: Another old-fashioned ass-whipping by the Storm.
