What are the five games that Buccaneers fans should be most excited about?
This upcoming football season has a different feel to it for Buccaneers fans. They haven’t been this ready for a season to start in arguably the last ten years or so. This team returns most of the same core that went 9-7 last year and missed out on the postseason fun because of a crazy tiebreaker to the Detroit Lions. After adding DeSean Jackson, O.J Howard, Chris Baker, and more over the off-season, the excitement is real down there in Tampa Bay.
The coaches, players, fans, ownership, and even most casual football fans truly believe that this is going to be the year that the Bucs break through and make the playoffs for the first time since 2007. The two divisions that the Bucs will face off against this year are the AFC East and NFC North. An interesting part about the Bucs 2017 schedule is that they don’t play against a division opponent until week 8 of the season. Whether you take that as an advantage or disadvantage, the Bucs will be playing their division rivals an awful lot to close out the year.
