TV Map For Bucs-Vikings Game

September 9th, 2023

Free football.

We are almost there! The 2023 regular season is just a Baker Mayfield short pass to Chris Godwin away. Joe can taste the Bromosa! And this season, Bucs fans and all NFL fans will have to change our long-held viewing habits.

For nearly 30 years NFC teams’ road games have been broadcast on FOX. AFC road games on CBS.  Sunday marks a change.

Beginning tomorrow, teams can have road games televised on either CBS or FOX. It depends what network suits want.

So the Bucs will face the Vikings in Minneapolis on CBS (WTSP-TV, Channel 10 locally). Get used to checking “Gameday Tampa Bay” right here on your favorite Bucs site each Sunday morning so you don’t get lost.

The Tom Brady era is over. How does Joe know this? Sunday’s game will be broadcast only in the upper Midwest and in Florida. That sort of reinforces how little buzz there is for the Bucs nationally. No Brady, no Gronk, no Antonio Brown, no Playoff Lenny, who cares? However, the Bucs will be seen by more fans than two of the three other teams in that CBS time slot, including in Chicago and Detroit.

(Well, Joe sure as hell does!)

Since this is considered a lower-rung game by the broadcasting shot-callers, we get the practice squad dudes behind the mic: Andrew Catalon, Tiki Barber, Matt Ryan and AJ Ross will call the game.

Of course, Bucs fans can head to Big Storm Brewing in Clearwater (Ira will be there!), or Big Storm’s other taprooms in Odessa, Cape Coral and downtown Orlando at the Amway Center. And naturally, visiting your neighborhood Hooters is always a wise move. Bonus: Select Hooters in Florida carry Big Storm Brewing beer on tap!

Blue: Buccaneers @ Vikings
Red: Bengals @ Browns
Green: Texans @ Ravens
Yellow: Titans @ Saints

    And of course a subscription to the Sunday Ticket on YouTube TV. I dropped DIRECTV about 30 seconds after my contract was up.

    I moved out of my native state for cooler weather in the Blue Ridge mountains so I’ll be missing my first game on tv since I lived on the Left Coast 15 years ago. Where can I stream it “affordably” (hint hint).

    Joe, thanks for the heads up regarding Fox. I had just assumed that the same situation would prevail this year as has in the recent past. I actually don’t have CBS though I’ll be going to a watch party where this isn’t a concern. But good to know for future reference.

    [Yes, Joe forgot to attribute 506Sports. Thank you for pointing that out. Somehow edited that out the original copy. Joe will have the map each Saturday — as Joe has done for 15 years — when the Bucs play that Sunday. — Joe.]

    Radio and JBF for me.

    Obviously, go dawgs, I’m a bucs fan in Georgia. I sacked up the 400 for youtube tv Sunday Ticket. I’ve never used youtube tv before I’m hoping the stream is ok?
    I always bought the direct tv sunday ticket package and the app on my samsung tv was terrible, always pausing, lag.. etc.
    I normally had to hook my laptop up to the Tv and then go through the sunday ticket web site that way. That was always a legit stream.
    Anyone have any info on the youtube tv steam? I dont mind using the laptop but its 720. I want the 1080…

    I assumed I’d get the game in Iowa since the Bears and Packers play at 4 so the Vikings take priority at 1. But I just realized with the new rules the Chiefs will play into that equation now too.
