Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2011 Schedule: Primetime Spots For An Exciting Team

The NFL just released the 2011 season schedules, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers come away with a schedule full of primetime spots. The Buccaneers surprised everyone with their impressive play in 2010, and it seems as though the NFL wants to highlight this young, up-and-coming team. Early in the season, the Bucs face the Colts at home in a Monday night game, and then late in the season they face the Cowboys at home in a Saturday night game. They also face the Bears in London for the NFL’s International Series.

The Bucs’ full schedule is below:

Week 1 (September 11): vs. Lions, 1:00 PM
Week 2 (September 18): at Vikings, 1:00 PM
Week 3 (September 25): vs. Falcons, 4:15 PM
Week 4 (October 3): vs. Colts, 8:30 PM – Monday Night Football
Week 5 (October 9): at 49ers, 4:05 PM
Week 6 (October 16): vs. Saints, 4:15 PM
Week 7 (October 23): vs. Bears, 1:00 PM – NFL International Series
Week 8 (October 30): Bye.
Week 9 (November 6): at Saints, 1:00 PM
Week 10 (November 13): vs. Texans, 1:00 PM
Week 11 (November 20): at Packers, 1:00 PM
Week 12 (November 27): at Titans, 1:00 PM
Week 13 (December 4): vs. Panthers, 1:00 PM
Week 14 (December 11): at Jaguars, 1:00 PM
Week 15 (December 17): vs. Cowboys, 8:20 PM – Saturday Night Football
Week 16 (December 24): at Panthers, 1:00 PM – Saturday game

Of course, the schedule is contingent upon the NFL resolving their labor dispute with the NFLPA and ending the current lockout.
