2015 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Season 40 Brief

The 2015 Tampa Bay Buccaneers season was the franchise's 40th season in the National Football League and the second under head coach Lovie Smith. The offseason was marked by the draft selection of All-American Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston first overall in the 2015 NFL Draft.

The team wore a patch to commemorate the clubs's 40th season.

By week eight, the team had already improved on their record from 2014 (2-14) by winning their third game against the Atlanta Falcons. Entering the month of December, the team found themselves mathematically in the hunt for a playoff berth with a 6-6 record. The Buccaneers lost their final four games of the season to finish 6-10 and last in the NFC South for the fifth straight year. Despite missing the playoffs, Doug Martin finished second in the league in rushing yards (just 82 yards shy of Adrian Peterson), and the franchise had their first ever season finishing in the top five in total offense.

On January 6, 2016, head coach Lovie Smith was fired after two seasons as head coach.
