TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 26 (UPI) -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers gained a small measure of revenge Sunday, beating the Dallas Cowboys, 16-0.
It was the second shutout of the season for the Bucs (4-3), who held the Cowboys to nine first downs and 178 total yards, forced three turnovers, and sacked Dallas quarterback Quincy Carter four times.
The loss snapped a five-game winning streak for Dallas (5-2), which is in first place in the NFC East. When Tampa Bay fired Tony Dungy as its coach after the 2001 season, owner Malcolm Glazer offered the job to Bill Parcells, who coached the New York Giants to Super Bowl titles in 1986 and '90.
At the last minute, he decided to stay retired.
The Buccaneers then hired Jon Gruden away from Oakland, and he led them to a Super Bowl title last season. At 39, he became the youngest coach to win a Super Bowl.
Martin Gramatica kicked three field goals for the winners.
