Four weeks into the new National Football League season and already there are a number of surprises. First and foremost among them is the performance of the 3-1 Tampa Bay Bucs, who last Sunday won their first road game after 15 straight losses. The much maligned Sam Wyche seems to have his team going fairly well so far, especially the previously disappointing Vinny Testaverde, who seemed to be suffering from secondary illiteracy until the last few weeks. Before you go out and buy playoff tickets, or even a pair of orange pants, you might note that the Bucs victims are a combined three wins and eight losses, and the only team they played with a winning record, the Minnesota Vikings, beat them.
