SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS The all-time series with the 49ers is dramatically in San Francisco’s 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 the pre-season.
