Eight Straight Wins At Home

November 22nd, 2021

Once upon a Lovie, the Bucs lost every home game in a season (2014) and didn’t have a winning home record in a season for 11 consecutive years.

Things have changed.

The Bucs are now riding an eight-game home winning streak, including the Super Bowl.

It’s not a coincidence and Bucco Bruce Arians talked about the delicious home cooking after tonight’s thrashing of the hapless Giants.

Of those eight straight wins, most have been blowouts and the only close game was on opening night of this season, a 31-29 beating of Dallas.

Finally, finally, finally, the Bucs have figured out their home turf and ended the incredibly long suffering of Bucs fans. It’s a beautiful thing.

The Bucs have three home games remaining, against the Bills, Saints and Panthers. Winning those three should wrap up Tampa Bay’s first NFC South crown since 2007. And the four left to play on the road? Only one is against a winning team, Sunday in Indianapolis.

Yes, the Bucs are well positioned to finish with 12 or 13 wins. And Joe believes the latter will be enough to secure the No. 1 or 2 seed in the NFC.

    So if the playoffs started tomorrow, it would be Bucs vs. Vikings in Tampa. That seems less daunting than facing the Rams round 1.

    Having been at every game for that 0 and 8 season at Home, this run is so very sweet! Normally obnoxious ny fan only had the one gifted touch down to celebrate, sent home with their tails between those legs!

    Super stoked for all the fans that live there and have been able to attend games.

    For a long, long time we had no homegirls advantage whatsoever. Soak it in Bucs fans!

    I’m sorry but tonight wasn’t a good win. Once again Tom threw a stupid Int a lot of checkdowns and the offense did nothing in the second half against an awful team. This is not a good football team something is broken. I think we’re looking at a 1st rd exit straight in the eye. I think Brady will play another terrible game against the colts

    Cbg I understand why you feel this way but to be devils advocate.
    The bucs scored over 30 points and held the giant’s offense in check they scored on a crappy pick n a trick play.
    Are the giant’s real deal nope…but we took care of business at home on prime time game. You take this win n measure up next week vs colts.
    If ab ..davis..vea..marpet..are back next week then poor colts will get it in a bad way…

    Cgb did we watch the same game? I didn’t see Brady throe any interception. I saw a receiver tip it up in the air for the defense who later had a good game. I see a giants offense that without a gift couldn’t get more than a fg and I think even that was helped by unnecessary pass interference and an offense that could have scored more i lf they hadn’t let foot off the gas but still got 30

    Lol at “Tom threw another bad interception”.

    Nah, Evans bobbled a perfect pass straight into the DB. But you were close, lol.
