USA Today's poll is active now and fans can cast their ballots until Monday, December 16 at 11:59 a.m. ET. Raymond James Stadium, which the Buccaneers have called home since its construction in 1998, is currently running fifth in the voting. As of Monday, the top five vote-getters among NFL stadiums are:

2. AT&T Stadium, Arlington (Cowboys)
3. Soldier Field, Chicago (Bears)
4. Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Denver (Broncos)
5. Raymond James Stadium, Tampa (Buccaneers)
A four-person panel that includes current NFL players Duane Brown and Kenny Stills came up with a list of 20 nominated stadiums for fans to choose among. Each stadium has its own description to help voters make their selections. Raymond James Stadium is described as such:
"The 'RayJay' incorporates the Buccaneers’ seafaring motif into the stadium design, including a replica of a pirate ship in one end zone where fans can hang out, order food and drinks, and duck for cover when the Bucs score and cannons start blasting. The unique layout allows for excellent viewing angles from any section. The stadium's location offers easy access to and from it to the surrounding parking areas, which are typically hopping with tailgate festivities."
