Every Tampa Bay opponent for the 2024 season

Heavy is the head that wears the crown, as the old adage goes.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are once again kings of the NFC South, and while that earns them a playoff berth and another banner, it comes with a downside — the team must play a first-place schedule for the third season in a row. Once the Bucs clinched, their schedule was set. The team will play the NFC East and the AFC West in 2023, but on top of that, they face off against first-place teams from the NFC West, the AFC North and the NFC North — and they’re quite the formidable opponents.

Here is every team the Bucs will officially play in 2024:
