Tampa Bay Buccaneers News



The Bucs are 1-5 all time against the Raiders in the regular season, but they will trade that record for their 1-0 mark against the Raiders in the Super Bowl. A look at the seven meetings between the teams:

Nov. 28, 1976

The inaugural Bucs fall to 0-12 (on their way to 0-14) with a 49-16 loss at Oakland.

Oct. 18, 1981

Chris Bahr kicks a late field goal to give the Raiders an 18-16 victory at Oakland.

Dec. 19, 1993

The Bucs' lone game in Los Angeles against the Raiders - a 27-20 loss despite a 57-yard field goal by Michael Husted, right.

Nov. 10, 1996

The Bucs' only regular-season win against the Raiders comes in Tampa on Michael Husted's overtime field goal.

Dec. 19, 1999

The worst loss in Bucs history as Oakland wins 45-0, but the Bucs win the next three to reachthe NFC Championship Game.

Jan. 26, 2002

The greatest victory in franchise history as the Bucs beat the Raiders 48-21 to win Super Bowl XXXVII.

Sept. 26, 2004

The Bucs fall behind 30-6 and lose 30-20 for a third straight loss to open season. They finish 5-11.

Inside the numbers

1Punts needed by Josh Bidwell to become the Bucs' franchise leader with 415 punts. He is tied with Mark Royals.

4Points needed by Bucs KMatt Bryant to set the franchise mark for most points in a season. Martin Gramatica, who had 128 points in 2002, holds the record.

1-8Raiders' record in the Eastern time zone in their past nine games.

2-5Bucs' record against teams from the AFC since the start of last season.

29Yards needed by Bucs WR Antonio Bryant to become the fourth receiver in team history to reach 1,200 yards in a season. The others: Mark Carrier (1,422) in 1989, Joey Galloway (1,287) in 2005 and Keyshawn Johnson (1,266) in 2001.

148.3Average passing yards per game by the Raiders, the worst in the NFL this season.

What they're saying

Rich Gannon, the Raiders and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last were in the same stadium the night Buccaneers linebacker Derrick Brooks delivered a career-ending hit to Gannon in 2004.

Two seasons before, Brooks recorded one of five interceptions of Gannon in a 48-21 Tampa Bay rout of the Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII.

The Raiders haven't won more than five games in any of the six seasons since that Super Bowl loss. Gannon retired four seasons ago. And the Buccaneers and Brooks are back playing at a high level under coach Jon Gruden, while the Raiders operate under their fifth coach during that span.

(Today), Gannon will be in the broadcast booth for CBS-TV providing analysis of the Raiders-Buccaneers regular-season finale and making sense for the viewers of the numerous subplots that transcend the game itself.

If hating (Jon) Gruden isn't convenient, go ahead and focus on Bucs defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin - known in these parts as the man who dared to help bring Lane Kiffin into this world.

This is Monte's last game before joining his son at the University of Tennessee. Gruden said that the Kiffin-(Al)Davis feud seems to be the talk in the Tampa area.

More than a few Raiders would love to have Monte pass along a message to his son, whom Davis fired with cause four games into this season.

"Anything to help the Raiders get back at the Kiffin family, I'm all for it," left tackle Mario Henderson said.

David White, San Francisco Chronicle

The picks

Ronde Barber is mad. Derrick Brooks is mad. Monte Kiffin, who doesn't have a mad bone in his body, is mad. The last game in the proud pro coaching history of Kiffin will not go like the past three. Bucs, 30-0.

Peter King, Sports Illustrated

Raiders QB JaMarcus Russell hopes to have success against a Buccaneers defense that had trouble pressuring Chargers QB Philip Rivers, who threw four touchdown passes. Bucs RBs Warrick Dunn and Cadillac Williams will test a Raiders defense that held Texans RB Steve Slaton to 66 yards on 18 carries. Slaton gained at least 100 yards in each of his previous three games. Bucs, 24-12.

The Harmon Forecast, CBSportsline

Just as they hoped, the Raiders end their season in Tampa, albeit five weeks shy of the Super Bowl there. Sorry, Raider Nation, the Crystal Ball didn't mean to rub it in by bringing up the term "Super Bowl" anywhere near you, Jon Gruden and the Buccaneers. Bucs, 23-0.
