The 1992Tampa Bay Buccaneers season began with the team trying to improve on a 3–13 season. It was the first season of Sam Wyche's four-year spell as Buccaneer head coach. Wyche said before the season that he believed he could turn Vinny Testaverde into a great player. Tampa Bay had lop-sided wins in the first two weeks, and looked like they would prove good the coach's words. They started the season 3–1 but then lost ten of the next eleven, starting with a close heart-breaker to the Indianapolis Colts. The biggest heartbreak of the year was a week-13 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Tampa Bay was rolling in the first half to a 27–3 lead. But the second half was all Rams, and a 27–31 loss took whatever life was left to the team out of it. Special teams suffered too, especially from kickers like Ken Willis making only eight of fourteen field goals. Reggie Cobb became only the third player in the team's history to rush for 1,000 yards in a season and Santana Dotson made the All-Rookie team. The Bucs finished the season the way they started it, with a win over the Arizona Cardinals.
