With schedules released all across the league, we take a look ahead and predict the outcome of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers first four games of the season.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released their schedule yesterday for the 2019 season, and in a four part series we break it down game-by-game with analysis and predictions covering four games at a time. While the rosters are not set and the draft has not been completed, in most cases adding one or two more immediate contributors is not going to push the needle, especially for a team with their quarterback set in stone.
Before the season begins, the Buccaneers will face the Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys at home, while traveling to Cleveland to face the Browns and Miami to square off with the Dolphins in the preseason. Hoping to use these games as a tune up and as a gauge of roster talent, the Buccaneers must be ready to go when week one rolls around on September 9.
With less than five months to go until the start of the regular season, there is still plenty left to accomplish in Tampa Bay before they take the field in September. Here is an in-depth look at the first four weeks of the Buccaneers schedule, how they match up against their opponent, and a prediction of how the outcome could look.
