Tampa Bay Buccaneers Have Played 701 Games
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have played 701 regular season and 15 post-season games since their inception in 1976. After losing a league-record 26 consecutive games, the Buccaneers broke into the win column at New Orleans on December 11, 1977.
Two years later, Tampa Bay stunned the football world when it reached the 1979 NFC championship game in only its fourth season. The Buccaneers clinched the NFC Central title with a dramatic 3-0 win over Kansas City in a driving rainstorm and then defeated Philadelphia 24-17 in playoff action to advance to within one game of the Super Bowl. But in the NFC championship, the Los Angeles Rams prevailed with a hard-fought 9-0 victory and of-course we all remember the Super Bowl victory over the Raiders in 2002.
