Later, Spikes studied liberal arts at Auburn University and there he was a teammate with future NFL running back Stephen Davis.

The Cincinnati Bengals selected Spikes as the 13th pick in the 1998 NFL Draft, and he started all pre-season and regular season games in his rookie year. He recorded 122 tackles and two sacks, and was appointed as a new team captain in 1999 when Takeo had 103 tackles, three sacks, four fumbles forced, four fumbles recovered, and two interceptions. The following season, Spikes recorded a career-best 128 combined tackles (109 solo), while in 2001 he had a career-high six sacks.

In 2003, Takeo signed a six-year $32 million contract with the Buffalo Bills, and in his first season with the Bills Spikes made it to his first Pro Bowl, after recording 126 tackles, two sacks, two interceptions, and two recovered fumbles. In 2004, Spikes had a career-high five interceptions for 122 yards, and two touchdowns, earning his place to a consecutive Pro Bowl.

Spikes also recorded over 100 tackles in 2010 and 2011, before in July 2011 joining the San Diego Chargers on a three-year deal, but stayed for only two seasons before the Chargers released him in March 2013. Takeo failed to find a new club during 2013, so he decided to retire.
