If you win, apparently they will come in Tampa Bay.
A week after the Buccaneers dismantled the Kansas City Chiefs 38-10 at Raymond James Stadium, the team will not have a local television blackout for Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints. The Bucs sold the required minimum of non-suite tickets required – 85 percent in their case – for the game to be shown on local television.
It is the first home game this season for first-year coach Greg Schiano’s team that will be shown on local television, according to Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune. Local viewers will be treated to a familiar voice, too, as ex-Bucs safety John Lynch will be the color analyst for Fox. Lynch is a rising star in the broadcast booth and has been doing solid work this season.
The Bucs sold out only two games at home last season.
