successful franchises Youth Customized Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jerseys , the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have found plenty of success on Monday Night Football. The Bucs are 11-10 all-time on Monday nights, with their most recent appearance ending in a 24-21 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in 2017. Tampa Bay has played host in 13 of those games, holding a 9-4 record - which is a good omen for tonight’s game. There have been plenty of memorable moments, but which ones stand out the most? Check out the Bucs’ top five moments on Monday Night Football below.5. The Bucs steal the spotlight - Tampa Bay 24, Green Bay 22The 1998 season gave Tampa Bay their first Monday Night Football game in 15 years. What better opportunity for the remade franchise to strut their stuff against the defending NFC Champion Green Bay Packers?Two early touchdown passes from Trent Dilfer and eight sacks - and eight forced fumbles, two were recovered - from the defense gave the Bucs a two-point victory and helped spark the team’s resurgence under Tony Dungy. 4. The eventual Super Bowl champs go down - Tampa Bay 22, Baltimore 10Everyone knows about the Ravens’ incredible defense during the 2001 season. They are arguably one of the best defenses of all-time. But when the Ravens came to Raymond James Stadium that year, it was the Bucs’ defense that showed up when it mattered most between the two eventual world champions. Ray Lewis and the Ravens’ defense were one of the best of all-timePhoto by Patrick Smith/Getty ImagesTampa Bay sacked Elvis Grbac five times, forced three turnovers, and held the Ravens to 4-of-17 on third down. Brad Johnson passed for just 90 yards on the day, but a 32-yard run by Mike Alstott in the fourth quarter sealed the deal and gave the Bucs a huge win. 3. Warner throws four picks - Tampa Bay 26 www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com , St. Louis 14The 2002 season was a magical one and it was kick-started by the Bucs’ gigantic win over Kurt Warner and the St. Louis Rams on Monday night. The defense sacked Warner five times and picked him off four times. They held Marshall Faulk to just 36 yards and a touchdown on eight touches. It all came to fruition as the future 2002 Defensive Player of the Year Derrick Brooks picked off Warner and it took it to the house to end any hope of a Rams’ comeback. It was Jon Gruden’s first win at Raymond James Stadium and a special one at that. 2. Losers in the Linc - Tampa Bay 17, Philadelphia 0 Fresh off of their Super Bowl victory, the Bucs looked like they hadn’t skipped a beat after demolishing the rival Eagles in the season opener. Tampa Bay had previously shut down the Vet after Ronde Barber’s pick-six on Donovan McNabb punched the Bucs’ ticket to the Super Bowl and this time it was two amazing catches by Joe Jurevicius that helped win the game. The defense smothered McNabb and the Eagles to the tune of just 245 total yards, two turnovers, and a 2-for-11 conversion rate on third down. The Bucs also dominated in terms of time of possession, outpacing the Eagles by 15 minutes. Unfortunately for the Bucs, the rest of the 2003 season didn’t fare so well, but opening week was one to remember. 1. The comeback - Tampa Bay 38, St. Louis 35The Bucs and Rams have a pretty intense history on Monday Night Football and this game was the perfect example. Tampa Bay was up 24-14 at halftime before a 27-yard touchdown pass from Warner to Faulk brought the Rams back within three, 24-21.Warrick Dunn took a swing pass 52 yards to the house to put the Bucs up by 10, but it wasn’t enough to stop the Rams. Warner led a furious rally that saw St. Louis take the lead on a 72-yard touchdown pass to Torry Holt that gave the Rams a 35-31 lead with just over five minutes left to play. If you know your Bucs history Tampa Bay Buccaneers Womens T-Shirt , then I’m sure you are quite aware of what happens next. Facing a 2nd-and-10 from their own 34-yard line, Shaun King tried to dump it off to Dunn, only to see him corralled in the backfield by the Rams’ Kevin Carter. Just as it looked like Dunn was about to go down, he famously lateraled it back to King, who then avoided about seven different Rams in spectacular fashion as he ran for a 15-yard gain to give the Bucs a first down. It was one of the more electric plays in franchise history and catapulted the Bucs to victory as Dunn punched it in from one yard out a few plays later.Arguably the most exciting regular-season victory, it was one that all fans will remember for a very long time.Buccaneers vs Bears Recap: Bucs Get Mauled In Chicago, 48-10 If you took the Bears this week at (-3.5), kudos to you.What was thought to be a very winnable game turned out to be the exact opposite as the Bucs allowed 38 points in the first half on the way to a blowout loss. It was the second straight week that the defense gave up 30 or more points in the first half, but the story of the day was Mitchell Trubisky. He torched the Bucs, going 19/26 for 354 yards and six touchdowns.The Bears came out using a lot of misdirection and play-action in order to take advantage of an aggressive Bucs defense. The game couldn’t have gotten off to a better start for Trubisky and the offense as they drove right down the field and scored after Trubisky found a wide open Trey Burton for a 39-yard touchdown to give the Bears their first lead of the game, 7-0.Tampa Bay took the field and went three-and-out on their first offensive possession. The defense was able to sack Trubisky on the Bears’ next offensive drive Tampa Bay Buccaneers Hats , but that was basically the only thing they’d do right for the remainder of the game. An offensive holding penalty on O.J. Howard stalled the Bucs’ next drive and Chicago drove 73 yards in seven plays as Trubisky threw a dime to Allen Robinson II in the back corner of the endzone to increase the Bears’ lead to two touchdowns, 14-0.Ryan Fitzpatrick finally got the offense rolling when he hit DeSean Jackson over the middle of the field. The 48-yard pass brought the Bucs to the Bears’ 17. But Tampa Bay’s red zone woes continued and the Bucs had to settle for a field goal to cut the Bears’ lead to 11, 14-3. Chicago responded right back, except with a left hook rather than a jab. Get ready to hear this a lot - Trubisky found Tarik Cohen six plays later over the middle for a 9-yard touchdown to put the Bears up 21-3 with no intentions of looking back.And they didn’t. Khalil Mack sacked Fitzpatrick on the next play, killing the Bucs’ chance at an answer. This time, it took Trubisky and co. just five plays to score on the next drive thanks to back-to-back blown coverages by the Bucs. Josh Bellamy was wide open for a 20-yard touchdown pass and now the Bears led, 28-3.The explosive plays kept coming for the Bears and there was absolutely nothing the Bucs’ defense could do to stop them. Jason Pierre-Paul and other leaders of the defense were seen on the sidelines visibly upset and frustrated with the lack of effective play. Their frustrations continued after another Bears touchdown pass from Trubisky - this time to Taylor Gabriel - piled it on, 35-3. The rout was on as Dirk Koetter watched helplessly from the sidelines. The 2-0 start to the season was now a distant memory and the Bucs’ issues were starting to show through in the worst way. Just to show that they weren’t done, Cody Parky hit a 50-yard field goal to send the Bears into halftime with a five touchdown lead, 38-3.The Bears recorded eight plays of 20 yards or more of the first half. Trubisky finished the half with a perfect 158.3 passer rating after completing 14 of 18 passes for 289 yards and five touchdowns. The second half saw Jameis Winston replacing Ryan Fitzpatrick, but it was to no avail. The smothering Bears defense aka Mack Tampa Bay Buccaneers Womens Hoodie , hit Winston as he was throwing the ball which led to an interception by linebacker Danny Trevathan. Chicago took advantage of the short field and a defensive pass interference call on Ryan Smith helped take them to the Bucs’ 31. Trubisky had all day to throw on the next play and found Cohen again down the sideline for a 28-yard pass. Gabriel caught his second touchdown pass of the day off of a jet sweep from Trubisky and extended the already insurmountable lead to 45-3. The Bucs were able to finally get in the endzone in the fourth quarter. Winston found Cameron Brate for his second touchdown in as many weeks and the lead was back to only five touchdowns, 45-10.Parkey added more insult to injury, nailing his 46-yard attempt late in the fourth quarter as the Bears were running out the clock to make the score 48-10.The Bucs now head into their bye week at 2-2 on the season. While that would’ve been considered a victory before the season started, it has to be a disappointment considering how the season started out. Stats from the game:The Bucs were bad in the red zone again. It’s becoming one of this team’s staples. They went just 1-3 when inside the 20. Every possession - except the final one - that the Bears scored on lasted no longer than three minutes, 34 seconds. DeSean Jackson finished with 112 yards on five receptions and now has three 100 yard games on the season.Tampa Bay allowed over 450 yards of total offense, exceeding their yearly allowance of 430 yards per game. Khalil Mack recorded yet another strip-sack and he now has one in every game this season.
