How does the all time series stack up between the Bucs and the Rams?

As the Buccaneers and Rams set to take on one another in Los Angeles, we take a look back at the history between these two teams.

Of course, the most famous match-up was the 1999 NFC Championship and the now infamous “Bert Emanuel” catch/no catch. The Bucs would end up losing to the “Greatest Show On Turf” on their way to a Super Bowl victory over the Tennessee Titans - holding one of the most prolific offenses in NFL history to a stunning eleven points.

These two teams met up in an NFC Championship twenty years earlier where the Doug Williams and Lee Roy Selmon led creamsicles lost 9-0.

All time, the Rams lead the series 16-8 including winning the last five games. The two have only met once since the Rams moved back to Los Angeles, a 37-32 Rams victory in 2016.

Against the Rams, Jameis Winston has 768 passing yards, five touchdowns, and two interceptions in two games with a 60.2% completion rate. Mike Evans has 23 receptions for 338 and one touchdown in three contests.

Rams’ quarterback Jared Goff is making his first career start against the Bucs while Todd Gurley is facing them for the second time. In those two games, Gurley has 133 rushing yards on 48 carries along with three touchdowns.

As head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, Bruce Arians went 5-5 against the Rams, including 0-2 in his final season.

The Rams are favored by 9.5 points at home. The Bucs and Rams will kick off at 4:05 p.m. est at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
