Eagles vs. Buccaneers will not be blacked out

Mike Ehrmann

Tampa Bay fans will be able to watch a Bucs home game on television for the second time this season.

The Week 14 game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Philadelphia Eagles will not be blacked out, the Tampa Bay Times reports. It will be the second Bucs home game available on team this season, thanks in part to a high-profile (and struggling opponent) and in part to a ceremony honoring the 2002 Super Bowl Buccaneers.

It was Philadelphia that Tampa Bay beat in 2002, advancing to the super Bowl with a 27-10 win in Philadelphia. Sunday will feature a reunion of that team, who went on to dominate the Oakland Raiders for a 48-21 Super Bowl win.

The Bucs are 5-6 all-time against the Eagles, but Sunday will present a good chance to move to a .500 record. The Eagles have lost eight straight games and are struggling to find answers on both sides of the ball. Tampa Bay has lost back-to-back games, and a win would go a long way towards keeping playoff hopes alive.

With the blackout lifted, the game will be broadcast on Fox at 1 p.m. ET.
