The early Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn’t yell “future Super Bowl candidate,” and for the most part, it was true.
However, the Buccaneers went to the Super Bowl once, and won that game. This makes him one of three franchises, before Super Bowl 55, to have won his only appearance in the Super Bowl.
Tampa Bay added to that story in the 2021 playoffs. The addition of Tom Brady for the 2020 season has made the Buccaneers a level of contention rarely seen in the club’s history. With Super Bowl 55 scheduled to take place at Raymond James Stadium on February 7, 2021, the Buccaneers are now the only team to win the Super Bowl while playing at their home stadium.
