Tampa Bay's Title

That the Buccaneers won their first Super Bowl last season wasn't entirely shocking. It was how they did it that was most impressive: a three-game playoff run that saw them beat the NFL's best teams by 25, 17 and 27 points. Yes, Tampa had great talent — especially on defense — but such lopsided scores are a result of masterful gameplans and near-flawless execution.
