NFL Rumors: Bucs vs Chiefs on SNF Could Move to Minneapolis

As the state of Florida prepares for the potentially catastrophic ramifications of Hurricane Ian, the NFL has prepared contingencies in case Sunday Night Football's Super Bowl LV rematch between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers can't be played at Raymond James Stadium. The Athletic's Daniel Kaplan reports that if the game needs to be moved, it will be played at U.S. Bank Stadium, the home of the Minnesota Vikings. Presently, the plan is to play the game as scheduled in Tampa Bay, but with the possibility of lasting devasastation on the horizon, that could prove impossible. Alternate plans could include delaying the game to mid-week, but the fact that the game is scheduled for Sunday Night Football's primetime slot complicates the matter.

The Bucs have had some tough luck to begin the season despite their 2-1 start, culminating in a Week 3 loss to the Green Bay Packers that saw offensive stars Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Julio Jones, and Donovan Smith miss the game. Nothing compares to the tension and uncertainty the state of Florida faces in anticipation of Hurricane Ian. Hopefully, the Buccaneers and the entire Tampa community can stay safe in the coming days.
