Week 1, at New Orleans
The Buccaneers first matchup of the year is not an easy task the Saints will be one of the Buccaneers top competitors throughout the year.
Going into New Orleans fans will finally get to see the product of the offseason hype they have been feeding into.
More importantly most players on this roster are going to have to live up to the high expectations set for the season, most of who have never experienced this.
Of course, what makes this week 1 battle so exciting is the first round of a season long fight between Tom Brady and Drew Brees two future hall of fame quarterbacks.
With Brady being in the AFC for the entirety of his career he and Brees have only faced off five times.
Brees holds a 3-2 record over Brady, surely the new Buccaneers quarterback will want to swing that record in his favor.
On top of the great quarterback battle we get to see the always enjoyable Mike Evans and Marshon Lattimore feud.
This is a type of matchup that can set the tone for an entire season, regardless of the outcome this game will come down to the wire in the fourth quarter.
Finally, with the arrival of week 1 we get to watch Tom Brady navigate this Buccaneers offense with a plethora of offensive weapons.
