The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 2015 regular-season schedule, released today by the National Football League, features matchups against the AFC South and the NFC East and includes home battles versus the New York Giants, Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears.
The Buccaneers start regular-season play at home on Sept. 13, as the Tennessee Titans travel to Raymond James Stadium for a late afternoon kickoff, marking only the fifth time since the 1970 AFL/NFL merger that teams with the first and second overall picks in the previous draft have faced one another in the season opener.
In Week 2, Tampa Bay faces its first divisional game of the season, traveling to New Orleans on Sept. 20 to take on the Saints, followed by a road trip to the Houston Texans on Sept. 27. The two teams have faced one another only three times in the regular season, and a win would mark the Buccaneers’ first road victory against the Texans.
Tampa Bay returns home in Week 4 to battle the Carolina Panthers on Oct. 4 before welcoming the Jacksonville Jaguars to Tampa on Oct. 11. The Buccaneers are 1-4 against the Jaguars, but 1-1 when playing at home.Read more... Join the Conversation...
