Five of the first six contests between the two teams were decided by seven points or less, while the last four meetings have all been decided by double-digit margins, with Tampa also winning in 2000, 31-17, and in 2005, 19-3. The Buccaneers made their first trip to Buffalo in 2009, losing 33-20. In 1991, Buffalo broke a four-game losing streak with a 17-10 win in Tampa. The two teams first met in 1976, with Buffalo claiming a 14-9 victory. The Bucs won each of the next four meetings, starting with a 31-10 win in 1978. Tampa Bay also posted wins in 1982 (24-23), 1986 (34-28) and 1988 (10-5). Tampa Bay’s .700 winning percentage against the Bills is tied for their best against any opponent.
