Looking ahead to NFL's schedule release



The NFL released its preseason schedule last week, but the main event is the release of the regular-season slate of games. That’s expected to come down next week, when the Bucs and the other 31 teams will learn how their season will be laid out.

The biggest revelations in the schedule release are things like the identity of the season-opening opponent, the layout of the schedule, prime-time games and the like.

In advance of this, it’s worth taking a quick look at what we already know about the Bucs’ regular-season schedule -- namely the opponents.

Here, then, is a quick rehash of Tampa Bay's 2013 opponents with their 2012 records. The dates and times will come later.


Eagles (4-12)

49ers (11-4-1)

Falcons (13-3)

Saints (7-9)

Dolphins (6-10)

Panthers (7-9)

Bills (6-10)

Cardinals (5-11)


Patriots (12-4)

Falcons (13-3)

Seahawks (11-5)

Saints (7-9)

Panthers (7-9)

Lions (4-12)

Jets (6-10)

Rams (7-8-1)
