The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going to the Super Bowl for the second time in franchise history – and with the big game being held right here at Raymond James Stadium, they won’t have to travel far.

What’s more, the Bucs are the first team in NFL history to play in a Super Bowl in their home stadium. They’ll take on reigning Super Bowl champs the Kansas City Chiefs.
