The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will finish a week of joint practices with Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots by playing a preseason game against the Pats at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro. The Buccaneers enter the game with mixed feelings after their week one loss to the Ravens, which featured a lopsided score but plenty of positives to take away.

The Patriots have been the source of plenty of drama this offseason, but appear to still be a well-oiled machine that is in regular season form already. They cut through the Philadelphia Eagles defense with ease last week, and will likely aim to do the same against the Buccaneers.

Here are the basic pieces of information you need to be ready to enjoy tonight’s game. This will be many Buccaneers’ fans first chance to see their team live in 2013, so be sure to follow along with The Pewter Plank on Twitter as we tweet our thoughts throughout tonight’s contest.
