Good thing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers solved their primetime performance issues last season, culminating in a Super Bowl LV victory. The NFL slated the Bucs for another five primetime games this fall, starting with the season opener.
Tampa will open with the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 9 in Week 1 followed by primetime clashes with another four teams according to Greg Auman of The Athletic. The Bucs will play Tom Brady’s old team, the New England Patriots, on Sunday Night Football in Week 4 and then the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday Night Football in Week 6. Five weeks later, the Bucs face the New York Giants in Week 11 on Monday Night Football and then the New Orleans Saints on Sunday Night Football in Week 15.
Bucs have five prime-time games in 2021:
— opening Week 1 Thursday vs. Cowboys
— Week 4 Sunday night vs. Patriots
— Week 6 on Thursday at Eagles
— Week 11 on Monday Night Football vs. Giants
— Week 15 Sunday night vs. Saints
