Included in their slate of games are a west coast trip to Seattle (Week 9) and road games in the Northeast versus the New York Jets (Week 1) and New England Patriots (Week 3). They also host Chip Kelly and the Eagles in Week 6 and the Super Bowl runner-up 49ers in Week 15 to close out their regular season home schedule.
Also of note, the Bucs host two prime-time games. The first is a Thursday night matchup versus the Carolina Panthers in Week 8, the other a Monday night showdown versus in-state rival Miami in Week 10.
In short, the schedule makers were very kind to the Bucs in 2013.
