It didn't take long for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to get their season off to a hot start -- one that only keeps looking better.
Going up to Minnesota in Week 1 and beating the Vikings was already impressive, but it was made more so thanks to what happened on Thursday Night Football. While the Vikings lost -- again -- the Philadelphia Eagles failed to contain their offense as much as the Bucs defense did in Week 1.
Tampa Bay's defense only allowed 17 points to the Vikings, while the Eagles gave up 28 points and nearly snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. Minnesota mounted a comeback drive in the fourth quarter that almost brought them back into the lead, something Tampa Bay did not allow to happen.
Philadelphia, a team that went to the Super Bowl last year, gave the ball back to the Vikings with time on the clock in a one-score game. Last week the Bucs stopped Minnesota and never gave the ball back, instead bleeding them out with a gutsy game-clinching drive.
It's still a small sample size and we're very early in the season, but there's already a lot to love about a Bucs team that was counted out before the year even began. With one win under their belt, the Bucs will host their home opener on Sunday against a very beatable Chicago Bears team.
NFL coverage map 2023: What channel is the Buccaneers game on in Week 2?
Unlike last week, the Bucs aren't being stretched across nearly as many markets as they were, as they have the second-smallest viewing area of all FOX's games.
It's going to be tough for Bucs fans to catch this game on broadcast, as only folks in the greater Tampa and greater Chicagoland area will be getting the game.
Here's a look at the TV coverage map for Week 2:
Despite not being broadcast outside of the local markets, the Bucs are still getting a great announcing duo, as Joe Davis and Daryl Johnston will be on the call. If you're like me, you probably thought Chris Meyers would get tabbed to call this week's game but he'll be in Houston working the Colts-Texans game with Robert Smith.
Outside of the Bucs game, fans in Tampa will get two other games on Sunday afternoon. The Chiefs-Jaguars game will be the 1pm ET matchup with the Jets-Cowboys game being the late-afternoon game being aired int he market.
Because the Bucs game is airing on FOX, both of the other games will be on CBS since there's only one network with a doubleheader in Week 2.
