The NFL announced the complete 2021 schedule on Wednesday, May 12, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are officially kick off the 2021 season on Thursday Night Football. The Bucs will play at home against the Dallas Cowboys in primetime on September 9th at 8:20 p.m. ET. Their first divisional game will be in Week 2 at home against the Atlanta Falcons.

The Bucs made history in 2020-21, becoming the first team to play in and win the Super Bowl in their home stadium. A year after signing Tom Brady away from the Patriots, the Bucs made further history by becoming the first team in the salary cap era to bring back its entire starting lineup on both sides of the ball. They re-signed all their notable free agents and head into 2021 with the second best Super Bowl odds behind the Chiefs.

All times listed are Eastern.
