NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS The all-time series with the Patriots is now led by the AFC team 7-3 after the Bucs win in October 2021. The 2009 game was a Tampa home game but was played in London, England as part of the NFL’s International Series. The first meeting came in the final game of the Buccaneers’ expansion season and completed their winless campaign. The two teams have also met 11 times in the pre-season with the Bucs holding an 8-3 series lead. The 1990 game was played in Jacksonville’s Gator Bowl rather than at Tampa Stadium.
