The great part about the sporting world is that it has moments no one expects. After the Rays reached their summit on Friday night in clinching a playoff spot, only a few expected the Bucs to do big things against the Rams.
In Los Angeles, where the Bucs played their first ever game in 1976 – the Buccaneers made history with a 55-40 win over the previous season’s NFC champs. The odd thing about Tampa’s scoring spree is that it could have easily have been more, despite breaking their all time single game scoring record of 48.
If the Bucs can find some maturity on defense, the future for Tampa Bay’s NFL franchise may get here sooner than anyone expected. Their game this Sunday against New Orleans could be a indicator of how far they already have come.
