Kickoff for the Week 17 game is set for 1 p.m. Eastern from Raymond James Stadium and it will be televised by FOX. On the call will be play-by-play announcer Thom Brennaman and analyst Charles Davis.
The Buccaneers (8-7) haven’t finished above .500 since they went 10-6 six seasons ago. Tampa still has a very slight chance to make the playoffs this year, but it would need a slew of things to fall into place. You can see all the postseason scenarios at the bottom of the post. The Bucs haven’t gotten into the postseason since the 2007 playoffs.
The Panthers (6-9) couldn’t put it together this year after making the Super Bowl a year ago. They’ll have a string of three-consecutive playoff appearances snapped.
Here are the details for the Bucs-Panthers game:
