Buccaneers vs. Patriots preseason 2013: Game time, TV schedule, online streaming and more

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

Everything you need to know about tonight's game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New England Patriots.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New England Patriots face off tonight in the first nationally televised game of the season for either team. Sure, it's preseason -- but national TV is national TV. The Buccaneers and Patriots faced off during week three of the 2012 preseason, and the Bucs left with a narrow 30-28 win.

The two teams held joint practices this week, which led to an injury scare for Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Fortunately, the New England signal caller's injury wasn't serious, and he participated in practice on Wednesday and is expected to play tonight.

For the Buccaneers, a number of injured players should make their debut for this preseason. Adrian Clayborn and Carl Nicks are both expected to take some snaps with the starters. Davin Joseph and Darrelle Revis will not participate in the game.
