In December, 1979, Tampa Bay played against Philadelphia in its first-ever playoff game. Who were the starting quarterbacks on that day?


Doug Williams and Ron Jaworski. The Eagles finished with a better record (11-5) in the regular season, but the Bucs hosted, having won the NFC Central. Tampa Bay won the game 24-17 but lost in the conference championship game the next week. The teams were coached by John McKay and Dick Vermeil, who oddly a few seasons earlier were college coaches in the same city (McKay at Southern Cal, Vermeil at UCLA).
