TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -It took 32 seasons and 1,865 tries, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have finally scored on a kickoff return.
Micheal Spurlock returned a first-quarter kick 90 yards for a TD for a 14-3 lead against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. He fielded the kick from Morten Andersen at his 10, burst through a huge opening in the middle of the field and cut up the right sideline to the end zone untouched.
A total of 141 players have returned kickoffs since Tampa Bay's inaugural season in 1976.
