2018 saw a second straight 5-11 finish for the Buccaneers and ultimately another change in head coach as Dirk Koetter was released hours after the season finale.   The offense ranked as one of the best in the NFL and the best in franchise history but both quarterbacks had a propensity for turnovers and the performance of the defense over the first half of the season meant a lot of high-scoring losses.   Kicking woes, an off-season suspension for Jameis Winston and the firing of defensive co-ordinator Mike Smith at mid-season were all part of the events that surrounded another losing season in Tampa and a 11th consecutive year out of the post-season.
