Record: 2-12
Head coach: John McKay

During the 1976 and 1977 seasons, the Buccaneers lost 26 consecutive games. They went 0-14 in 1976 (more on that later) and then lost their first 12 games in 1977. In '77, they were pitiful on offense, scoring just six touchdowns the entire season and setting a league record by getting shut out in six of their 14 games. They did finally win a game in Week 13—a 33-14 victory over the New Orleans Saints that earned them a celebration back in Tampa the following day that featured more than 8,000 fans welcoming them home—but it wasn't enough to save them from cementing their legacy as one of the worst NFL teams ever.
