The Bucs and The Rams: A Well Matched Rivalry
On Nov. 20, the Rams beat the Bucs, with a final score of 27-24. They then went on to win the Superbowl, so to say this rivalry is an exciting one is a huge understatement. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Los Angeles Rams have met a fair few times over the years, starting in 1977- the Bucs second season.
Starting running back Ricky Bell and back-up Anthony Davis played their hardest under coach John McKay, but it didn’t come close to defeating the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams won 31-0, and the stage was set for a fierce rivalry.
In 1979, the Bucs bit back, with a final score of 21-6 in week four of the playoffs. Between 1984-97, the Rams and Bucs met annually, but the Bucs were deep into a losing streak and couldn’t catch a break. It wasn’t until 1994 that the Bucs managed another win, with 24-14 (secured by Charles Wilson with two excellent touchdown receptions).
The NFL changed it’s post season format during 2021, with 14 teams rather than 12 coming from the 2021 post season. Seven teams from the AFC and the NFC were included in the postseason.
