TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

Fans will get to see the Tampa Bay Buccaneers play the New Orleans Saints on television.

The Bucs announced Thursday on their website that they have reached the NFL's mandated threshold for ticket sales for Sunday's home opener.  That means a blackout has been avoided, and the game will be televised locally.

Poor ticket sales have caused other games at Raymond James Stadium to be blacked out.

Sunday's game, which pits the Bucs against their NFC South division rival, kicks off at 4:05 PM.  It will be televised on WTVT Fox 13.
