The Seahawks make their third east coast road trip this season as they head to Tampa for an NBC Sunday Night Football appearance against the Bucs. Kickoff is slated for 5:15 p.m. (PT) and the game will be televised on NBC(channel 5 in Seattle) and on 97.3 FM in Seattle.
It is the first of two scheduled nationally televised games (Week 14's flex schedule vs. New England). The Seahawks hold a 31-22 all-time prime time record, including a 15-10 record on Sunday Night and a 2-2 record on NBC.
Head Coach Mike Holmgren is 13-4 all-time on Sunday Nights, including a 7-3 record with Seattle.
This marks the ninth matchup between the two 1976 expansion teams with the Seahawks holding a 7-1 advantage in the series. The two have met each of the last three seasons, all resulting in Seahawks victories. Seattle opened last season on September 9, 2007, with a 20-6 win at Qwest Field.
The Buccaneers lone victory came November 28, 1999, at the Kingdome ending a five-game Seahawks winning streak that season. The Seahawks began that year 8-2 before running into the Buccaneers, and finished 9-7, capturing the AFC West crown during Mike Holmgren's first season as Seahawks head coach.
With a win, he will take sole possession of 10th place in NFLhistory with 172 career wins. He is currently tied with Hall of Famer Joe Gibbs. Holmgren's current record stands at 171-114.
