The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going old school for the Panthers visit on Sunday.
The Bucs will wear their orange throwback uniforms, a nod to the early days of a franchise that struggled to find its footing before eventually winning a Super Bowl in less garish uniforms.
Local fans won't get to see the throwbacks because the game is expected to be blacked out in the Tampa area because it's not a sellout. Still, they may see the glow emanating from Raymond James Stadium when the Bucs wear what have been called their 'Creamsicle' uniforms.
The Panthers, on the other hand, don't have throwback uniforms. They're still wearing the ones they've been wearing since the start 17 years ago.
