The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Are Going To Play A Regular Season Game In Germany
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going overseas. This will be the first ever regular season game in Germany, taking place on November 13th at Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena. Kickoff in Munich will will mean the game starts at 9:30 am for those of us in Florida. (I don’t call it eastern time, or New York time – I call it Florida time). Tom Brady and the Tampa bay Buccaneers will be taking on the Seattle Seahawks. Despite losing Russell Wilson, the Seahawks opted to not draft a quarterback, leaving uncertainties at the position. I gotta think the NFL chose the Seahawks to play in this game thinking a Russell vs. Tom Brady matchup would be happening. But then again, the New York Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars…… Also:
The Bucs will be the “home” team for the game, which will kick off a 9:30 a.m. ET. Tampa is one of four teams that holds international marketing rights in Germany. The Panthers, Chiefs and Patriots are also in that group.
Other international games in London and Mexico City were announced on Wednesday and the full schedule will be revealed on May 12. [via ProFootballTalk]
