The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play in four primetime games in 2024.

It's nice to see the Buccaneers get some recognition at last. Despite winning the NFC South three seasons in a row and eliminating the Philadelphia Eagles in January, the Buccaneers consistently get overlooked.

The NFL has delivered four intriguing primetime matchups for the Buccaneers this season, with matchups against the Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs, and Dallas Cowboys.

Tampa Bay will play once on Thursday Night Football and Sunday Night Football and twice on Monday Night Football. Here are the full details for each game.

Week 5: Buccaneers at Falcons (Thursday Night Football)

While the focus will be on Kirk Cousins and his struggles in primetime, the advantage for the Bucs is coming up against the Falcons' defense. Atlanta desperately needed help at cornerback and edge rusher but decided to draft Cousins' eventual replacement. This is a huge game between the top two contenders in the NFC South, but the short week may favor the home team.

Week 7: Buccaneers vs. Ravens (Monday Night Football)

This should be a fascinating battle. The Ravens run the football better than anyone, ranking first in rushing offense last season. Their ground game could reach another level this year after signing Derrick Henry. However, the Bucs consistently defend the run well. They ranked fifth in run defense last season and have a top-five finish in four of the past five seasons. The Bucs have a chance to make a statement win on Monday Night Football.

Week 9: Buccaneers at Chiefs (Monday Night Football)

OK, it doesn't get much more challenging than this: a primetime game against the back-to-back Super Bowl champions on Monday Night Football. The good news for Tampa Bay is that the pressure is off. Kansas City will be heavy favorites at home, allowing Baker Mayfield to go into Arrowhead Stadium and pull off an upset.

Week 16: Buccaneers at Cowboys (Sunday Night Football)

This could be a huge game. The Bucs and Cowboys will likely be competing for a playoff spot, either a division title or a wild-card berth. Tampa Bay was the last team to win a regular-season game in Dallas, but it won't be easy on Sunday Night Football in December.
