Eagles vs. Buccaneers will be on local television, limited tickets available

Matt Stamey-US PRESSWIRE

For the second time this season, a Tampa Bay Buccaneers home game will be shown on local television. The game between the Buccaneers and Philadelphia Eagles will not be blacked out, and will be shown on Fox this Sunday. It starts at 1:00 p.m.

Previously, the home game against New Orleans managed to avoid a blackout. Despite implementing a new rule that prevents blackouts when 85% of tickets have been sold, the Bucs have struggled to keep the games on TV locally. For years now, the Tampa Bay area has been plagued by blackouts.

Sunday's game has an added attraction, though, and that has probably spurred ticket sales: the Eagles are coming to town, and the Bucs are rubbing salt in their wounds by commemorating the 2002 Super Bowl season by hosting many coaches and players from that team. The Bucs, of course, beat the Eagles in the NFC Championship to get to the Super Bowl. Our own JC De La Torre had a terrific story about how he experienced those playoff games.

If you want to join in the fun and don't have a ticket for Sunday's game, you may have to hurry. According to the Bucs, only limited tickets remain. Our ticket partner TiqIQ has you covered for Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets.
