Tampa Bay Buccaneers announce 2019 regular season schedule

TAMPA, Fla. – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 2019 regular season schedule, released today by the National Football League, is highlighted by an appearance in the International Series against the division rival Carolina Panthers and finishing the season with three of the final four games being played at Raymond James Stadium. Tickets to all the team’s home games are on sale now and available for purchase at Buccaneers.com.

The Buccaneers will play at Raymond James Stadium in Week 1 for the first time since 2015, facing off against the San Francisco 49ers. Last season the Buccaneers defeated the 49ers 27-9, also at home. The game will feature a 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff time.

In Week 2, Tampa Bay will be featured in prime time, squaring off against the Carolina Panthers on the road in a Thursday Night Football matchup. This marks the Buccaneers’ first Thursday night contest on the road since 2015 and the earliest that the team has played on Thursday Night Football.

Week 3 sees the Buccaneers host the New York Giants in a 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff, marking the third straight season that the two teams have faced each other, with the home team winning each of the previous two contests.

Following the Giants game, Tampa Bay plays consecutive road games, going against both of the 2018 NFC Championship game participants. First the Buccaneers visit the Los Angeles Rams in Week 4, Tampa Bay’s first visit to Los Angeles since 1993. The Buccaneers’ next road contest is a divisional matchup with the New Orleans Saints in Week 5.

After facing the Saints, the Buccaneers will play the Carolina Panthers at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on October 13 at 9:30 a.m. EST (2:30 p.m. BST) in Week 6. This will mark Tampa Bay’s third game played in the International Series (also 2009 and 2011) and the Buccaneers’ first time ever playing a divisional opponent in the Series. The matchup between the Buccaneers and Panthers will mark the second-ever NFL contest hosted in Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, following the Chicago Bears and Oakland Raiders game in Week 5.

Tampa Bay’s Bye Week comes in Week 7, followed by two road contests. The first is a trip to Nashville to face the Tennessee Titans in Week 8, the Buccaneers’ first time traveling to Tennessee in the regular season since 2011. The team then heads to the Pacific Northwest in Week 9 to take on the Seattle Seahawks, Tampa Bay’s first road game against Seattle since 2013. As the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, Buccaneers Head Coach Bruce Arians posted a 4-1 record at CenturyLink Field.

The Buccaneers return home in Week 10, with Arians squaring off against his old team, as Tampa Bay goes up against the Arizona Cardinals. The last time the Cardinals played at Raymond James Stadium was in 2013.

Tampa Bay’s next two games are divisional matchups, first going against the New Orleans Saints at home in Week 11, then traveling to face the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.

The next two contests see the Buccaneers going up against the AFC South, first against in-state rival Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13, Tampa Bay’s first road game in Jacksonville since 2011. Tampa Bay follows that game with a contest against the Indianapolis Colts at home in Week 14, which could mark quarterback Andrew Luck’s first career game at Raymond James Stadium.

Tampa Bay’s final road contest of the season comes in Week 15, traveling to square off with a former NFC Central rival, the Detroit Lions.

The Buccaneers close the season with two home games. First the Houston Texans play at Raymond James Stadium, where Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson led Clemson to the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship. That Week 16 contest will be played on either Saturday, December 21 or Sunday, December 22, with the time to be announced by the league at a later date.

For the second consecutive season the Buccaneers close out the regular season campaign hosting the Atlanta Falcons.

All games will feature a radio broadcast on 98Rock (WXTB-97.9 FM), as well as stations throughout Florida that are part of the Buccaneers Radio Network. In addition, fans can listen online at Buccaneers.com and on the Buccaneers mobile app.

This season, the NFL will again utilize “flexible scheduling,” which may be applied in Weeks 5-17. Up to two games may be flexed into Sunday Night Football between Weeks 5-10. A select number of games may also be “cross-flexed,” moving between CBS and FOX to bring potentially under-distributed games to wider audiences.

Flexible scheduling will be used in Weeks 11-17 as usual and it will not be applied to games airing on Thursday, Saturday or Monday nights.

A flexible scheduling move would be announced at least 12 days before the affected game.  For Week 17, the change may be announced six days before the game. Flexible scheduling is intended to ensure quality matchups on Sunday night in those weeks where it is applied.

Buccaneers season pass memberships start as low as $30 per game for adults and $15 per game for youth. For more information or to speak with a Buccaneers account representative, please contact 866-582-BUCS (2827) or visit Buccaneers.com.
