Brady vs Brees really is that game of week.
Thanks"Quite often" is an understatement.
They're going to be available more often than any out of town team that I can think of ever - by far.
Week 2: Pats play Sunday night; CBS has the doubleheader.
I'm guessing at 1:00 Fox will play Carolina-TB while CBS shows Bills at Dolphins
Late game is Ravens at Houston in the eastern US, KC at Chargers in western US.
Week 3: Pats have an early home game vs the Raiders; Fox has the DH.
The three late games on Fox are Detroit at Arizona, Bucs at Denver and Dallas at Seattle.
Boston area will likely get the Tampa game again.
Week 4: Pats have a late game at KC; CBS gets the DH.
Chargers at Bucs will be telecast in Boston.
Week 5: Tampa Bay plays on Thursday night.
Week 6: Fox has the DH and their only late game is Packers at Bucs.
Week 7: Tampa is at Las Vegas on Sunday night.
Week 8: Tampa plays the Giants on Monday night.
Week 9: Saints at Bucs on Sunday night.
Week 10: Pats play Baltimore on Sunday night; Fox has the DH.
Boston should get Tampa at Carolina early, though western New England will have Eagles at Giants.
Week 11: Bucs are on Monday Night Football.
Week 12: KC at Bucs is the sole game in the late afternoon slot, shown everywhere.
Week 13: The first time all year the Tampa game will not be available in Boston.
It's a bye week for the Bucs.
Week 14: The Pats play Thursday, eliminating a Sunday conflict.
Fox has the DH, so Boston should get the Vikings at Bucs early.
Week 15: Pats are at Miami early, and CBS has the DH.
Tampa plays Atlanta in the early slot, and networks typically refuse to put a single out of town game up against the local team head to head. Unless this game gets flexed, this could be the first Tampa game not available in Boston.
Week 16: Fox has the DH and will air the Bucs in the early time slot.
The Pats play Monday night.
Week 17: So many games get moved around based on playoff implications, it is of almost no use to speculate based on the current schedule. I would think that there is a good chance that Atlanta at Tampa would fall into that category, in which case it will be broadcast in Boston.
By my projections we are looking at 14 to 15 Tampa Bay games being broadcast into the Boston television market.
