Tampa Bay Buccaneers Schedule
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are ready to sail around the country this season as they
hit the road for some great matchups against top National Football League teams. The Bucs had a bit of an odd season in 2013,
but things are looking up for this franchise. The Bucs started the season off with eight straight losses, but then rattled
off three straight victories thanks to some solid play from both the offense and the defense. The Bucs have faith in head
coach in Lovie Smith to help turn the organization around, and many of their offseason moves have been praised by experts.
The team will have to win some tough games on the road this season if they're going to contend for a spot in the postseason,
but it appears that Tampa Bay could have the talent to make that happen in 2014. The Bucs have some great home matchups coming
their way, and all the biggest fans will pack the house to cheer them on.
The Bucs will have to travel to face their
divisional opponents this year, as they always do, and their biggest matchup in that regard could be when they take on the
Carolina Panthers on September 7th to kick off the season. The Panthers won the NFC South last season thanks to their stellar
defense, and the Bucs are going to have to bring their best if they're going to take down Cam Newton and company. The New
Orleans Saints, another divisional foe, made the playoffs in 2013 as well, and should be in the running for the NFC South
title yet again. A victory against New Orleans on December 28th, the final regular season game, would be huge. The Bucs will
face a number of other tough teams as well, so take a good look at the schedule to see all the top matchups coming to Raymond
James Stadium this season.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Team Info
The Tampa Bay Bucs got off to a rough start
last season, losing their first eight games of the 2013 campaign. However, the team didn't look as bad as one would expect
an 0-8 team to look, which was confirmed when the Bucs rattled off three consecutive victories following that 0-8 start. The
team seriously upgraded their offense in the offseason with the acquisitions of quarterback Josh McCown and wide receiver
Mike Evans. Add them into the mix with Doug Martin and Vincent Jackson and the Bucs could have an explosive unit that puts
up points all season long. Defensively, this team looked much better in the second half of the 2013 season, a trend the Bucs
are hoping to carry into 2014. Fans hope the Bucs are poised for a big turnaround this season, and they could very well mke
a run at the postseason if head coach Lovie Smith can maximize his talent and get consistent results on the field.
