Tampa Bay's preseason schedule

By Pat Yasinskas

The NFL has announced its preseason schedule. I’ll roll out the schedules for all four NFC South teams as quickly as I can. Let’s start with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Exact dates and times have only been determined for the national television games.

In the first week of the preseason (Aug. 8-11), the Bucs will host the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. On Aug. 16, the Bucs will play at New England in a game that will be carried nationally by FOX. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Bucs spend a few days early and practice with the Patriots. The two teams did the same thing when the Patriots came to Tampa for an exhibition last summer.

In Week 3 (Aug. 22-25), the Bucs will be at Miami. They’ll finish the preseason on either Aug. 29 or 30 at home with the Washington Redskins.
