ABOUT

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers joined the NFL as an expansion team in 1976. The Buccaneers switched to their present league in 1977 after spending their inaugural season in the American Football Conference (AFC). The team's losing run persisted in the NFC, and their 26-game loss is still an NFL record for the Super Bowl era. Tampa Bay did not earn its first victory in club history until December 1977. After a series of dismal seasons since 1983, Tampa Bay’s luck turned around in the 1990s when they built one of the best defenses in the league. Tampa Bay is the first post-merger expansion club to secure a division title, win a playoff game, and host a conference championship; achievements they completed by their fourth season in 1979. This is in spite of their early difficulties. By the time the club won its first title in 2002 (the first for a franchise formed during the merger) their reputation had improved, but they wouldn't win another playoff game until their second Super Bowl victory season in 2020. In addition to having little success outside of winning Super Bowls, the Buccaneers have the lowest winning percentage in the NFL (.404). The franchise is currently valued at $3.67 billion according to a Forbes listing.

The majority of the Buccaneers' postseason appearances were in the 2000s and later. The last time the Buccaneers won the Super Bowl was in 2020 after a 12 year hiatus from the playoffs. They won Super Bowl LV in 2021, by defeating the Kansas City Chiefs in a blowout manner. The game ended 31-9 at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. The Chiefs failed to score even one touchdown and even conceded 11 penalties to the Buccaneers. Tom Brady was named the Super Bowl MVP.
