Week 1: vs. San Francisco 49ers
Week 2: at Carolina Panthers
The Buccaneers led 20–14 late in the fourth quarter. In the final two minutes, Cam Newton drove the Panthers to the Tampa Bay 2-yard line. Facing a 4th-and-1 at the 2-yard line, Christian McCaffrey took a direct snap and made a fake reverse handoff, but was pushed out of bounds just short of the line to gain. Tampa Bay held on to win, their first under Bruce Arians.
