Ladies and gentlemen it's finally here, Creamsicle week is upon us.
For the first time since 2012, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be donning their classic throwback uniforms on Sunday in a game that has grown exponentially more interesting than when it was scheduled.
Two things are happening that we didn't know would be the case when this game was scheduled back in May. Both the Buccaneers and Lions are first place teams who are meeting in what very well could be a playoff preview. It's also a game that is going to be played in the primo late window slate for FOX and be featued as a Game of the Week.
Pretty big stuff for a team that was supposed to be tanking this year.
Baker Mayfield and the Bucs were a laughing stock over the offseason but have turned into a team that is being flexed in less than half a season. That alone is worth celebrating, but the work is only just beginning.
We're going to learn a lot about the Bucs in the next few weeks. Tampa Bay will travel up to Buffalo in a few weeks for a Thursday Night showdown and have games against San Francisco and Jacksonville on the horizon. Sunday's game against Detroit is a true measuring stick game that will help give us an idea of just how seriously the Bucs should be taken as contenders.
What channel is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers game on today? (October 15th)
It's been lost in the shuffle of how important this Sunday's game has become, but the Buccaneers will be wearing their creamsicle throwbacks for the first time in over a decade in Week 6. At one point in time that was the headline, and it's just as notable as it was when it was announced.
Originally the game was scheduled to be played at 1pm ET, but it has since been flexed out of that window and moved to the Fox 'Game of the Week' slot.
