Sep 29, 2022

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers informed the NFL they will play at home in Week 4. The team released a statement Thursday, saying it will be ready to host the game despite Hurricane Ian making landfall in Florida on Wednesday.

The Buccaneers sent "thoughts and prayers" to those severely impacted by the storm. The team said Tampa Bay was spared major damage, allowing the team to still host the game at Raymond James Stadium.

A portion of the team statement read:

"We have informed the NFL, after consulting with local and state agencies, that we are ready to play Sunday night's game against the Kansas City Chiefs at Raymond James Stadium as originally scheduled."

The Buccaneers will take on the Kansas City Chiefs in a rematch of Super Bowl LV.
