It’s Chiefs At Bucs In Week 4 — Sunday Night Football!

May 12th, 2022

Rojo’s return!

The schedule leaks are flowing, and this one comes directly from the source, NBC Sports.

They’ll be broadcasting the Chiefs at the Buccaneers in Week 4 on Sunday Night Football. The date is Oct. 2.

It’ll be Ronald Jones’ homecoming, and a nice reminder to Kansas City of how it got its ass beaten by the Bucs in Super Bowl 55.

    Haa. A Rojo homecoming!

    Todd Bowles was the true MVP of Super Bowl LV. The Bucs new head coach had Patrick Mahomes scrambling for his life and holding the ball and gave the Chiefs no deep shots. Bowles played a two deep safety system that a lot of Bucs fans seem to hate and funneled everything underneath.

  3. Dooley Says:


    EXACTLY! Bowles not only drew that game plan up specifically for KC, but it was based on coverage concepts our young secondary hadn’t implemented the entire 2020 season until the break between the conference championship and the Super Bowl. Mahomes had to feel like(when he caught his breath) post snap he was throwing into a moving maze. I still watch breakdowns of it, there are a few good ones out there that showed how our front 7 also held up their end of the game plan handling the underneath stuff while generating pressure rushing 4, and how that played into the chess match on the back end.

    Yes! we can watch him run for 9 yards and then step out of bounds cowardly on 3rd and 10.

  5. Hodad Says:

    Going against the chefs, he’s the least of our worries.

  6. D-Rome Says:

    W for the Bucs.

  7. tampabayallday Says:

    hopefully mahomes throws the ball to rojo the entire game.

  8. Robert Says:

    love the optimism. have a feeling Rojo will have a huge day.

  9. BucsFan81 Says:

    This is the game I want to try and get tickets for. My 12 year old is a huge chiefs fan and I have been a bucs fan since 98 so this will be a fun game to take him to.

  10. Stanglassman Says:

    Both Super Bowl wins were dominating defensive wins. It’s crazy cause it’s such high stakes at the time it feels like it’s closer.

  11. Defense Rules Says:

    Robert … ‘love the optimism. have a feeling Rojo will have a huge day.’

    Aahh yes, because RoJo’s had soooo many HUUUGE days. Out of curiosity Robert, what names do you use when you troll the other 31 teams?

  12. LOL Says:

    The MVP of that Super Bowl was the entire Chiefs injured offensive line. They had their backup right tackle playing left tackle and a backup guard playing right tackle.

    Brady would’ve been sacked 10 times behind that line.

  13. D-Rok Says:

    @ Robert,

    I hope ROJO does have a huge day. Huge would mean around 100 yards rushing against our front. But it would be on about 40 carries, meaning Mahomes will not throw the ball near as much.

  14. PassingThru Says:

    It’ll be interesting to see how the KC offense functions without Tyreke Hill. Teams wised up to KC with cover two or cover two shells, which diminished their offensive punch. Even with Hill, their most potent receiving option was Travis Kelce, and he’ll be 33 next season. I don’t expect Father Time to erode Kelce much next season, but that time is definitely coming.

    DR, the answer to that question is the self proclaimed sasquatch. And careful what you say around her because she is likely to bully you to death and Certainly Will attack you and call you belittling names all the while calling You a Fascist.
    Self righteous, Self proclaimed, and Very Smelly “Sasquatch” is your culprit DR.

    Glad to help clear that up. In the meantime, I’m not sure why playing the Chiefs is such a big deal. A tough team to be sure but we will fight tougher battles this year. I respect what they bring but I simply don’t fear them. In fact I don’t think they go back to the big show this year.
    Now, sasquatch may not like my point of view on this game and I Fully expect her to call me names but you know what, I certainly don’t concern myself with what the smelly lady thinks. ESPECIALLY when the she attacks someone (and it doesn’t matter who) on a daily basis. A pathetic creature giving what could be potentially a real creature a bad name.
    Somehow I feel that she smells worse than the creature itself. In fact “crotchety” would better suit her disposition and attitude towards fellow Buc fans if they don’t fall in line with what she deems “the way it’s going to be”.
    By the way DR, I really like how you do a ton of homework on pretty much any subject concerning the Bucs and appreciate and respect your points and info that you bring to the table. I don’t always agree but I gotta say it’s hard not to when you actually insist on a point of view. Most of the time you simply lay out a ton of very cool info. 2 cents that sometimes multiples and makes a dollars worth. Thanks for the efforts to educate us all.

    BEWARE THE CROTCH (goes by the handle sasquatch)! SHE WILL STICKS AND STONES YOU!

    Go Bucs!

    The big difference this year and in 2020, when the Chiefs dominated the first half of the game, is the absence of the Cheetah, Tyreek Hill. Our DBs will have a much easier time covering their current receivers (I hope).

    I remember Sean Payton on TV before the Superbowl and remarked that with KC the key was not to give up big plays. He suggested KC might be able to go down the field on the Bucs but that if we did not let any over the top plays happen, that he liked Buc’s defense to stop KC anytime KC might get close to the goal line. He felt that KC would not have any power ability against the Bucs defensive line.

    Sometimes it is the matchup. Ultimately, we matched up pretty well that year.

  18. Jerry Says:

    Our secondary got lit up for 2 quarters by the chiefs, but then dominated the next 6. And they don’t have Cheetah anymore. I think the Bucs know how to handle this team.

  19. Bucsfan4ever Says:

    It’s gonna be hard to have both a mega-paid QB and a mega-paid reciever from now on. Arent Hill and Devante Adams making about 30 mil? Rodgers and Mahomes make north of 40 mil. If they stayed with their QBs that’s a third of the salary cap for two players.

  20. GOB Says:

    @ LOL exactly right. I find it funny that bucs fans give bowles credit for crashing an arena league O line. Patty M, had no chance from the first snap. Dooley could’ve coached the bucs defense to victory that day.

  21. Bucsfan4ever Says:

    According to Kaaron Rodgers will make over 50 mil this year. He’ll make more next year if he plays and doesn’t renegotiate. Obscene. Can’t leave a nickel to sign anyone else.

    … I find it funny that bucs fans give bowles credit for crashing an arena league O line.

    It is not just Bucs fans but guys who coached at the highest level. Everyone used Bowles plan at the beginning of 2022.

    Your takes that you have this vast football knowledge that somehow exceed that of Todd Bowles or Bruce Arians continue to be an oxymoron.

  23. Dooley Says:


    You give me too much credit, theres no way I’ve got an ego close to the size of yours to think I can stroll in off the street and coach an NFL game. Pretty sure Bowles has more football accumen in his gnarled pinky toe than you do in your entire existence, but I’m sure you think otherwise lol

  24. Joe in Michigan Says:

    That’s IF Rojo makes their team. IF he plays for them like he did the Bucs (at times), such as dropping passes, missed blocking assignments, running out of bounds w/o trying for a 1st down, and pouting…He won’t make their roster.
