According to an annual survey of the National Football League's players, Tampa Bay's home arena – Raymond James Stadium – has the best playing surface in the league.
The results, which were announced Thursday in San Diego, California, showed that 1,367 of the players polled voted Ray-Jay's natural grass surface the best to play on out of 32 different fields.
Thursday's announcement marked the fourth time Tampa Bay's home field was voted the best in the league (1994, 1996, 1998, 2000).
Philadelphia's home playing surface inside Veterans Stadium was voted the worst in the league. Ironically, the Buccaneers fared quite well on the NexTurf inside Veterans Stadium last Sunday en route to defeating the Eagles, 27-10.
