Patriots vs. Buccaneers Preseason: Game Thread

Open discussion thread for the Patriots preseason opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Jared Wickerham

Tonight the New England Patriots will face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro. The game will kick off at 8:00 pm ET and will be broadcast nationally on Fox.

The game can also be streamed via the NFL Preseason Live subscription with a delay.

For Buccaneers coverage check out Bucs Nation.

Some things to watch:

  • Does Tom Brady play at all and how much time to the backups get?
  • Does Blount still get the same number of reps or do they switch that with Bolden to give all backs a try? They do that most pre-seasons.
  • Does Jamie Collins get some reps with the ones this week, as he seems to be the first guy in for Spikes?
  • Are the backup tackles still as porous against the run?

Feel free to discuss the game here!
