I'm assuming you are going to the Bills game on Sept. 18, which ought to be fun. My wife and I went to Tampa last year for the first time, and I was surprised how spread out everything is. The football stadium is really close to the airport and close enough to "downtown" Tampa, but the best beaches are out in Clearwater, which is probably where you should stay for powder white sand and warm water. The only thing to consider is the traffic from Clearwater to the stadium on game day. You'll probably need to allow at least two hours to deal with normal traffic on the island and then game traffic. I'm sure a local person can give you the best advice on places to stay in Clearwater.
