The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will host the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens tomorrow evening at Raymond James Stadium for the first game of the 2013 preseason. The Ravens were the example for the Buccaneers to follow last year, as they utilized a big play passing game and a versatile workhorse running back on offense to bring home the Lombardi Trophy. The Buccaneers have added some serious star power over the past two seasons, and will be looking to find the depth players needed to ensure they have what it takes to endure the long NFL season.
Considering that this is the first preseason game, starters are unlikely to see the field for very long. So the Bucs and Ravens will get a chance to evaluate their depth in a full-speed NFL game, and fans will get a chance to see their team on the field for the first time in several months.
