Super Bowl XXXVII: Tampa Bay Buccaneers Face Oakland Raiders on Sunday

The Oakland Raiders and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers face off in the National Football League's Super Bowl XXXVII today in San Diego, California.

The Oakland Raiders are favored to beat Tampa Bay in a game that matches Tampa's top-rated defense against Oakland's Number One offense.

Tampa Bay Coach Jon Gruden said he hesitates to make any predictions about the game's outcome. "Our performances are live. It's not like a movie, where you can take a cut and do it over. These are live performances, and there are so many variables. Kickoff coverages, punt protection, bump-and-run coverage, playing the right down - you never know," he said.

Security is reported tight for today's game, with a no-fly zone imposed over the area, and a heavy police presence at the stadium. Oakland is making its first appearance in the Super Bowl in 19 years. Tampa Bay has never been to the championship game.
