As the NFL schedule gets fully released on Thursday night, singular games are already being announced. That includes the Bucs season opener on Sunday, September 11, and home opener two weeks later on September 25.
NFL.com revealed all of the matchups for Week 1 of the NFL season and the Bucs will start their season in prime time. Tampa Bay starts on the road and take on the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night football.
This is a rematch of the season opener from a year ago when the Bucs as defending Super Bowl champions hosted the game.
Tampa Bay then announced information for when their home opener will be. In a post across their social media platforms, their opening home game goes on in Week 3. The Bucs will play against the Green Bay Packers at 4:25 on September 25, which presumably should be America’s Game Of The Week.
It’ll be the first time that Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers face each other since 2020. They went head to head twice that year and the Bucs won both games. One was early in the season in Tampa and the other was at the NFC Championship game in Green Bay.
Along with their Week 1 and Week 3 games, we also know two others on the schedule. The Bucs play at home against the Chiefs on Sunday night football in Week 4 and then have their international game in Germany against the Seahawks in Week 10. Although it’s a neutral field, it is considered a home game for the Bucs.
The rest of the Bucs schedule along with the entire league will be revealed at 8:00 PM. You can find it on ESPN and the NFL Network.
