The Buccaneers dropped their first and second games of the preseason against the Bengals and Titans, and they will look to bounce back this Saturday against the Texans.
Tampa will probably lean on their starters early in the game, as this is their final game before the regular season, but there is still time for the backups to make a push for more prominent roles.
Regardless of who is on the field, the Bucs are still going to be the team to watch each week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Houston Texans prediction for Preseason week 3
If the Buccaneers play their starters for half of the game, it’s hard to think they won’t put together a sizable lead. The Texans are without an identity and without much talent on either side of the ball, so the Bucs should be inching closer to their lone preseason win of the year.
