TAMPA, Fla. (Sept. 22, 2020) – FOX Sports Sun and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced a new broadcast agreement that will feature weekly replays of Buccaneers games on the television home for Florida sports.

Exact replay times will be clarified and announced on Mondays or Tuesdays via @FOXSportsFL on Twitter. Tampa Bay’s 31-17 win vs. Carolina will re-air on Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 4 p.m., but most games thereafter will be replayed Wednesday nights in primetime through the end of the season.
