Fans say the Saints are the Buccaneers biggest rival

The two have faced each other often.

Saints V Buccaneers

Many Buccaneers fans remember the days Tampa Bay was in the NFC Central. The always memorable black and blue division featured the likes of the Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings, Green Bay Packers, and Detroit Lions. The Bucs had many memorable matchups against those teams.

However, in today’s NFL world, they have had to grow to hate a different set of teams after the realignment of 2002 placed them in the NFC South with the New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Falcons, and Carolina Panthers.

With that said, SB Nation asked fans to vote on who they feel are their team’s biggest rival. So as you can see below, many feel the Saints are Tampa Bay’s rival.

The Bucs have faced the Saints 53 times which is fifth most among teams they have played against. They have a 21-32 record against New Orleans.

And the four teams the Bucs have played more are of course the Bears, Vikings, Packers, and Lions.

Note: Eagles were placed in the FanPulse poll because, well, they’re still mad with Tampa Bay after Ronde shut The Vet down.


Who do you think the Bucs’ top rival is?
