Isn't the rule within a 75 mile radius? We are farther than that from Tampa!

I don't think its blacked out, just not on TV locally there.  I'm sure if you had Sunday Ticket you'd see it just fine.

   Ormond Beach is serviced by Orlando TV stations. Since Orlando TV stations can be received within 75 miles of Tampa, they are not allowed to broadcast the Bucs game. Sucks, but sadly the NFL police prevail...

    Yeah, BTown, I was at my high school reunion one weekend in Melbourne last year, expecting to take in the Bucs on TV afterward on Sunday afternoon; NOT; blacked out!
Even worse, further north in St. Augustine, they get the Jacksonvill TV stations, who carry the FALCONS games. I always thought Jacksonville should be in Georgia not in Florida; now I'm convinced...
