2021 The defense of the Super Bowl trophy was a valiant one but came up short with a home loss to the Rams in the Divisional Round. The breaks that had gone the Bucs’ way the previous year in terms of health and big plays were not present this time round and key injuries hurt the team down the stretch and into the playoffs. Tom Brady led the Bucs to 13 wins, the most in their franchise history albeit with an extra game added to the schedule. He also led the NFL in passing yardage and touchdowns at the age of 44. His supporting cast was depleted at times and the walkout of Antonio Brown in the middle of the Jets’ game did not help. And then Brady finally rode into the sunset, retiring two weeks after the Bucs’ playoff loss.
