So how come Atlanta gets a throwback uniform and the Bucs do not? Since the Falcons’ brand-new helmet fits with their throwback appearance, and the Bucs’ does not.

For those questioning, the #Buccaneers wish to restore the creamsicle throwbacks however are waiting on the NFL to raise the “one-shell rule.”
So no throwback for 2020.
