5 Things to Know About the Buccaneers 2017 Schedule

Posted Apr 20, 2017

A few interesting facts about the Buccaneers' 2017 schedule.

1. Eight Super Bowl rings are coming to Raymond James Stadium.
The Buccaneers will take on two Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks in back-to-backs weeks in the first half of the season. In Week 4, the Giants’ two-time Super Bowl champion quarterback, Eli Manning, comes to town. A week later, Tom Brady and his five rings head to Tampa. The Buccaneers will play two other Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks, Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees. One game against Brees will be at home, but the second will be on the road, as will the game against Rodgers and the Packers.

2. The Bucs will see both in-state teams early on.
The battle for the Florida State Championship will be in full swing by the second week of September. The Buccaneers open the regular season against the Dolphins at 1 p.m. on September 10th in Miami and will take on the Jaguars three weeks before, meeting in Week 2 of the preseason on August 17th in Jacksonville. The Buccaneers met the Jaguars in the preseason last year after a week of joint practices with them.

3. The month before the bye is the time to get hot.  
After the Buccaneers meet the Patriots in Week 5, they face five teams in a row who missed the playoffs in 2016: the Cardinals, Bills, Panthers, Saints and Jets. Following the bye, the Bucs have four consecutive games against playoff teams; the team will take on the Falcons twice, along with the Packers and Lions.  

4. The Bucs are set to make their streaming debut.
Last year, Thursday Night Football was streamed live on Twitter. But only select games were chosen, and the Bucs’ TNF game wasn’t among those to be broadcast. This year, Amazon has the rights to Thursday Night Football and it appears the Buccaneers are poised to make their streaming debut. The team’s game against the Patriots will be available on Amazon for subscribers to their Prime service and will be simulcast on NFL Network and CBS.

5. The Bucs will face every active NFL MVP.
As reported by Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, there are just four active players in the NFL who have bene selected as the league's MVP, and the Buccaneers will play all four this season. Matt Ryan, Cam Newton, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady have all won the award. With both Newton and Ryan playing the NFC South, the Buccaneers will face a former MVP in six of their 16 regular season games.
