The Buccaneers became the first post-merger expansion team to win a division championship, a playoff game, and host and play in a conference championship game — accomplishing all three feats during the 1979 season.

Team History

  • In 1977, the Buccaneers switched from the AFC to the NFC conference, where they have remained ever since.  
  • In 1979, the Buccaneers reached the NFC Championship game in only their fourth season. However, they were defeated by the Los Angeles Rams, 9-0.  
  • After the 2001 season, the Buccaneers left the NFC Central division and joined the NFC South.
  • The 2002 Buccaneers won their first Super Bowl (XXXVII) when they defeated the Oakland Raiders, 48-21.
