TAMPA BAY - All of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers remaining games, including those played at home, will be televised, according to the team's web site.
First word came via Twitter shortly before 1 p.m. Thursday.
"The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are projected to surpass the NFL’s threshold of 85% tickets sold for the majority of the team’s remaining seven home games," according to the web site.
“In appreciation for the loyal support of our fans throughout the Tampa Bay area, we have committed to televise the remaining seven home games of the 2013 season,” said Buccaneers Co-Chairman Bryan Glazer.
The announcement comes one day after the team announced it was benching quarterback Josh Freeman in favor of rookie Mike Glennon.
The Bucs' next home game is with the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday at 1 p.m. The following week is a bye week.
