Tougher Than a Concrete Wall, Packers Defeat Buccaneers for Share of First
Nov. 28, 1993 – Offensively without a pulse for three-and-a-half quarters, the Packers come to life on a 15-play, 75-yard drive to edge the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 13-10 at Lambeau Field and claim a share of first place in the NFC Central Division along with the Detroit Lions. Brett Favre finds Sterling Sharpe with a 2-yard TD pass with one minute, 16 seconds remaining. Favre’s throw comes one snap after he absorbs a vicious shot from safety Barney Bussey. “He’s tough as nails; tougher than a concrete wall,” Packers receiver Mark Clayton says of his quarterback. “He’s so damn tough I can’t even think of adjectives to describe him.” Nearly half (79) of Favre’s 159 passing yards come on that scoring drive as he completes eight of 11 passes including three on third down.
