Redskins vs. Buccaneers blacked out in Tampa Bay area

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Few people will be disappointed not to see this contest.

As expected, the locals will not be able to watch the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Washington Redskins in the mostly meaningless fourth preseason game. The game, which will take place on Thursday at 7:30 p.m., is to be blacked out in the Tampa Bay area.

That's hardly a surprise, as the team's first preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens was also blacked out. While there have been reports of strong ticket sales and some  hope that most regular season games won't be blacked out, season ticket sales apparently aren't good enough to sell out the stadium on their own.

More relevant will be whether the Bucs' home opener against the New Orleans Saints on September 15 will be blacked out. That will be interesting to see, though the team's lackluster preseason performance won't help ticket sales.
