Here's three options for you:
K-D's is on Hillborough Avenue at the Hillsborough/Pinellas county line. Bar is owned by a transplant from Mass. and is pretty much 99% filled with Pats fans on Sundays. Pats on the big screen and played through the stereo system as well, even when the Bucs play. Not the fanciest place in the world but you won't find better drink and food prices anywhere. Limited menu but a great value.
Boston's is on Anderson Road just south of Linebaugh and east of Veteran's Expressway. Much bigger and better menu than K-D's. Big gathering of Pats fans here.
If you're on the east side of Hillsorough county the Beef O'Brady's in Plant City gets a large group of Pats fans there from what I have heard from a few sources.
I'm not going to take sides, take your pick; a lot will surely depend on your exact location. Or try all three over the course of the season.
One other thing to keep in mind: the Bucs are not going to sell out this week, which means their game will get blacked out; they have until the end of the day Thursday to do that. That will result in either the Pats, Dolphins, or Jaguars game probably ending up being shown in Tampa on Sunday. There should be an announcement they did not sell out at that time, followed by an announcement by the CBS station in Tampa regarding which of those three games they will show in its place.
