The Tampa Bay Buccaneers open up the 2021 NFL season at Raymond James Stadium as they take on the Dallas Cowboys tonight on NBC. Tampa has become the title town as the city has claimed 3 major championships, with the Lightning winning back-to-back Stanley Cups (2020, 2021) and the Bucs winning the Super Bowl in between–all within the last calendar year.

With Tom Brady on their side, the Buccaneers could potentially become the first team to repeat as Super Bowl champions since the New England Patriots (2003 and 2004). Brady was the last quarterback to pull off that endeavor which is something that has only been accomplished 8 times in NFL history.  See below for the list of repeat Super Bowl winners.

List of all-time repeat Super Bowl Winners:

  • Packers -1966 and 1967
  • Dolphins -1972 and 1973

  • Steelers -1978 and 1979
  • 49ers – 1988 and 1989
