To see the Bucs and Eagles mix it up again, fans attending the game will need to use their original Philadelphia tickets
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers wish to offer their fans two reminders regarding the remaining home games on the team's 2001 schedule.
Chicago at Tampa Bay, November 18
The Bucs' first division meeting of the year with the first-place Chicago Bears was originally scheduled to kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET in Raymond James Stadium on November 18.
The reminder: The start of that game has been rescheduled for 4:15 p.m. ET to accommodate the FOX network broadcast schedule.
Tampa Bay's matchup with Chicago may have gained some added luster when the Bears got off to a better than expected start.
Chicago is currently in first place in the NFC Central with a 5-1 record. This is also the Bucs' last season in the NFC Central, which means the Bucs-Bears rivalry will be played far less frequently in subsequent years.
Philadelphia at Tampa Bay, January 6
Due to the September 11 terrorist attacks on America, the games that were to be held on the following weekend were postponed by the NFL. Philadelphia's game in Tampa, originally to be played on September 16, was rescheduled for January 6 at 8:30 p.m. in Raymond James Stadium.
The reminder: To attend the Philadelphia game on January 6, fans must bring their tickets and parking passes for the original September 11 date.
That contest was also moved from a 1:00 p.m. kickoff into its current prime time slot. The NFL replaced the original ESPN Sunday Night matchup of Cleveland at Pittsburgh with the Bucs-Eagles game, a rematch of last year's NFC Wild Card Game.
