The Buccaneers have their “dress rehearsal” preseason game on the road against the Miami Dolphins, who are also on the schedule for the 2013 regular season. This means there will be an interesting balance of rolling out a gameplan, and holding back any secrets that may give the opponent a heads up in film study.
Tampa Bay is 0-2 in the preseason, while Miami is 1-2. Both teams have young quarterbacks who seem to have potential, but both fan bases will surely want to see more from their signal callers.
These are two teams with high hopes for 2013 after relatively disappointing 2012 seasons, so the battle of the starters for the first two quarters should be very interesting to watch.
