Bucs hit 3 years without being above .500

The .500 drought

The Bucs were 25 minutes away from having a winning record before collapsing Sunday against the Colts. How big of a deal is that? Well, it means Tampa Bay will go more than three years without being above .500 at any point in a season. Surprisingly, this is the second-longest streak of being .500 or below in franchise history. On the bright side, the Bucs don't own the NFL's longest current streak. Jacksonville claims that at 74 consecutive games.

Longest streaks in Tampa Bay without ever being above .500:

Years Gms W-L Coach(es)

1983-86 64 12-52 McKay, Bennett

2012-15 47 12-35 Schiano, Smith

1976-79 44 7-37 McKay

1992-94 43 13-30 Wyche
