05:04 AM ET 12.05 | The Bucs have managed to sell out one game this season and Sunday's game against the Eagles is looking like a second. Bolstered by the reunion of the 2002 Super Bowl team, this Sunday's game is looking like it will be a sellout, or at the very least will be above the 85 percent threshold for blackouts. According to TicketMaster.com, just about every section at Raymond James Stadium is sold out with many other listing only "single seats" are available. There are roughly just over 100 tickets available for the game which not only means the game will be on locally but Raymond James Stadium will actually be full. This shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, as a preseason poll showed that this was the most anticipated Buccaneers game of the season. It may be only for one week, but the Bucs will have avoided a blackout on two games this season and although other franchises laugh at that stat, it's progress nonetheless.

So that also marks the tenth anniversary of the last time the Raiders were any good, then...

Looks like Bucs per-game attendance average was pretty consistent until it started to fall beginning in 2008
