It's official. Sunday's game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Pittsburgh Steelers at Raymond James Stadium will be blacked out according to a Bucs team representative.
There is a 1pm Thursday deadline for a team to sell out the stadium, thereby avoiding a blackout. Unfortunately, that deadline passed, and the team did not ask for an extension.
This will be the second time in two games this season that the Buccaneers will be blacked out in their home market, despite having a 2-0 record early in the season.
