The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have made it through the first quarter of the 2020 NFL season, and some welcomed surprised have met the team.

Three wins against only one loss and sitting atop the NFC South standings; this has been a phenomenal start to the 2020 NFL season for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Everyone expected Tampa Bay to become a contender during their successful offseason, but this start is still a welcomed sight.

Over the past decade and a half, the Buccaneers have performed at a remarkably low level and failed to even remain competitive with most top-tier teams. During this same time, the Saints, Falcons, and Panthers have all gone to the Super Bowl, yet Tampa Bay failed to reclaim the glory of the early 2000s. Fortunately for the Bucs, all of that has apparently changed.

The Bucs stand at the top of the NFC South, although it may be too soon to crown them division champs yet. The Falcons and Panthers have both put together mediocre stretches, but the real threat is the Saints. The Bucs have already dropped a game in this matchup, but there are still many games left to play.

If these past four weeks are any indication, the Buccaneers will have a massive 2020 season. Here are the biggest surprises from the beginning of the season.
