04:44 PM ET 11.08 | The Tampa Bay Buccaneers failed to reach the 85% of non-premium seats sold and will be blacked out within a 75 mile radius of the Tampa Bay area. Reports earlier in the week indicated that the Bucs had 9,500 still available for Sunday's contest. Unfortunately, they did not reach the threshold by Thursday's deadline. Only one of Tampa Bay's four games this season has not been subject to the NFL's blackout rules. The Bucs have had just two sellouts in the last two years. Greg Schiano's team has won three of its last four games.

Still plenty of football on TV. Hey in Canada (when there's hockey on) we have to endure the Leafs over and freakin' over at the expense of watching the home team! We're still not sure what game they play!
