Falcons-Bucs will be blacked out locally
The Bucs' home game against the Falcons on Sunday will be blacked out.
As we enter the 72-hour window until kickoff, plenty of tickets still remain for the 4:15 kickoff. Sunday's crowd is expected to be comparable to that of the season opener against Detroit. That game drew 51,274. Raymond James Stadium seats roughly 65,000.
A local blackout covers all of Tampa Bay and many surrounding markets, including Bradenton-Sarasota and parts of the Orlando market.
This will be the 10th straight regular-season home game not available on local television after all eight home games were blacked out last season.
