The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 2013 season is finally over. Now we get to look forward to a 2014 season, with possibly a new head coach and quarterback. We'll see whether that happens, but we do know one thing right now: the Bucs' 2014 opponents. The NFL schedules each season's opponents based on a complicated rotating schedule involving divisions, conferences and other records.
For 2014, the Bucs will face the NFC North, the AFC North and the Rams and Redskins as well as the Bucs' own division opponents, of course. A season full of smash-mouth football in the AFC, and lots and lots of passing in the NFC North. Also, the Vikings. Six games against playoff teams, four of those within the division, so it doesn't appear to be an overly difficult schedule. Things change swiftly in the NFL however.
What we don't know is when each game will be played, which is something the NFL will announce later this offseason.
