But that game could be affected by Hurricane Ian, which is currently wreaking havoc in Florida.

Ian was upgraded from a tropical storm on Monday and made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane.

And it’s invaded the Sunshine State, with more than half a million without power in the Tampa area.

The Buccaneers have moved to Miami to continue training ahead of the big game.

They will use the Miami Dolphins’ facility – which was vacant as of Wednesday afternoon when the Dolphins played a road game Thursday night.

The hurricane will have passed through Tampa well before Sunday’s scheduled game.

But the upcoming SNF showdown would depend on more than just the sky above us.

Authorities would have to be satisfied with police and emergency personnel and with all services such as electricity fully operational.

On Thursday morning, the game continued as planned.

But the league will offer comfort to teams, local leaders and those directly involved in disaster relief before making a final decision.

The NFL says if the game has to be postponed for any reason, it will be played at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The Vikings play their game against New Orleans at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London this Sunday.

Bucs head coach Todd Bowles said: “We’re going to try to carry on as usual and it’s a little different but everyone’s families are safe so hopefully we can focus.”
