1998 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Season 23 Brief

The bucs finished 8-8 and missed the playoffs since 1996, following their breakthrough 1997 season. It was their first season in Raymond James Stadium.

They were the only team to beat the Minnesota Vikings during the regular season. In Week 16, they recorded the biggest road win in their history against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The season was marked by close losses in which touchdowns had been called back due to referee error.
