The Tampa Bay Buccaneers struggled for half a season to come up with their first win. It resulted in head coach Greg Schiano being fired, but that has brought in Lovie Smith and a new era ripe with optimism.

No NFL schedule is easy, but they don’t have the toughest schedule. They have the Green Bay Packers who narrowly won the NFC North with an 8-7-1 record. They host a solid and tough Cincinnati Bengals team that has gone to the playoffs three years in a row.

Their away schedule includes some tough teams who haven’t necessarily lived up to their potential in 2013.

Check out the Buccaneers’ 2014 schedule below:

HOME OPPONENTS:

  • Green Bay Packers
  • Minnesota Vikings
  • Baltimore Ravens
  • Cincinnati Bengals
  • St. Louis Rams

AWAY OPPONENTS:

  • Chicago Bears
  • Detroit Lions
  • Cleveland Browns
  • Pittsburgh Steelers
  • Washington Redskins
