The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Have Never Been An Unstoppable Scoring Machine


Since their arrival in the NFL in 1976, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had an up and down existence. The team went winless in their first season in the league, finishing with a record of 0-14. But in just their 4th year, the Buccaneers made it one game away from the Super Bowl, losing to the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game. The Bucs would then have a long drought before returning to respectability in the late 1990s and then winning the Super Bowl in 2002 over the Oakland Raiders.

During all this time though, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have never been accurately described as having an unstoppable scoring offense. In fact, the highest the Buccaneers have ever finished at the end of the season in points scored is 6th place, this happened in the 2000 season. That sixth place finish is the only time in their entire team history that the Buccaneers have finished among the top ten scoring teams in the league. Their next highest finish came in 1984, when they ended up being ranked 14th in total points scored.
