SAN FRANCISCO 49ers The all-time series with the 49ers is dramatically in San Francisco‚Äôs favour although the two teams did meet in the 2002 playoffs when the Bucs came out 31-6 winners on their way to winning Super Bowl XXXVII.  The Buccaneers gained their first-ever win on the West Coast when they beat the 49ers in a 1980 encounter but it would be another 30 years before they repeated the trick at Candlestick Park.  The two teams have never met in a pre-season encounter.
