The Buccaneers will host the Lions for their first home game of the 2018 season. Find all of the broadcast and gameday information here.
Out of all of the preseason games, Week 3 games are the most important. The starting units play for the entire first half in their dress rehearsal for the regular season.
Through the first two exhibition games, the Bucs have looked strong. The offense has been firing on all cylinders, and a young secondary has fans buying into the defense for the first time in years.
All eyes will be on Ryan Fitzpatrick and the offense. With a strong performance, there will be some hope that he can lead the underdog Bucs to a victory against the NFL elite to open the regular season.
