Good news, Tampa Bay Buccnaeers fans: This weekend's game won't be blacked out on local TV.
The Bucs' home game against the New Orleans Saints at 1 p.m. Sunday will be shown in the Tampa market, TBO.com reports. That's the first time this season a Bucs home game won't be blacked out.
The team sold the required 85 percent of general admission tickets necessary to avoid the blackout of the Sunday's game at Raymond James Stadium, the team announced Thursday.
The Bucs failed to sell out each of their first three regular-season home games this season and 16 of their previous 18, TBO reports.
Sunday's game will air locally on Fox 13.
Are you looking forward to watching Sunday's game? How have you been dealing with all the Bucs' blackouts the past few seasons? Do you think the NFL's blackout rule is fair? And why haven't Bucs games been selling out?
