Because they're kind of a forgotten franchise given their playoff drought, but the team wasn't devoid of talent.  "They were bad last year and they're good this year" is pretty lazy analysis.  I'm not a Bucs fan but follow the team since I live locally -- they were a QB-not-named-Jameis-Winston and consistent kicker away from maybe making the playoffs in 2019.  If Jameis doesn't piss away games against Houston (four Int, one of them a pick-six in a 3 pt loss), Carolina (5 Int), and Atlanta (walk-off pick six) and Matt Gay doesn't miss a chip-shot game-winner against the Giants, they're a ten or eleven win team in 2019.  They were the best run defense in the league last season by a mile, one of the best total defenses in the second half of the season, and were stacked at WR.  Their primary issue was a QB committing 30+ turnovers.


I don’t think people who don’t follow the Bucs (everyone) quite realize just how frustratingly bad Jameis and their kicking situation really was. I absolutely HATE Jameis, and it has nothing to do with all of the off the field crap he pulled. It was because the guy was immensely talented, but would constantly just toss games aside with his poor decision making. It was so goddamn bad that guys like Josh McCown and Ryan Fitzpatrick were a relief to see just because you knew you were getting a break from the stupidity for a bit. And that was NOTHING compared to how garbage their kicking situation was and has basically always been. They once traded up in the SECOND ROUND to draft a kicker who was completely out of the league less than a year later. That’s how miserable that whole situation was.

For most teams, the home bench is underneath the face of the logo and the visitor/away bench on top of the logo. A few teams are the reverse; the Browns, the two New York teams, the Cowboys, the Patriots, the Falcons, the Rams, and the London host teams.

 

I'm not sure how they do it for the Super Bowl.

 

The Eagles are also on top of the logo, facing the camera.  Maybe it has to do with the side that their tunnel is on, but I just assumed that the home team would always be on the side that faces the main camera.

The locker rooms in Raymond James Stadium are on the camera side of the stadium.  Home team under normal circumstances (Buccaneers and USF Bulls) enter thru the camera side right corner and visiting teams cross the field and enter thru the camera side left corner.
