The mayor of Tampa says the city is already making progress in its recovery from Hurricane Ian, and the Buccaneers should host the Chiefs on Sunday night as scheduled.
Tampa Mayor Jane Castor wrote on Twitter this morning that the city will be ready for Sunday Night Football.
“We made it through—now the recovery efforts begin. I can’t thank our City of Tampa teams enough. Our push crews are going out in full force to clear debris and keep our city safe,” Castor wrote. “On another note: we’re doing our best to keep the Buccaneers game here Sunday. I have assured the NFL that the only disturbance here Sunday is when the Bucs kick ass.”
The NFL has not officially confirmed that the Bucs game will go on as planned, but given the mayor’s enthusiastic endorsement, there appears to be little doubt that it’s game on for Sunday night.
