The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are finally going to take the field again after 8 months of absence. The Bucs last played in an NFL game on January 2, beating the New Orleans Saints in the Louisiana Superdome. Today, though, the result doesn't matter. It's preseason, and these "W"s don't carry over. What matters is playing experience and how these individual players look. Who will stand out, and which training camp wonder will disappear in a real game?
Check out our articles on who to watch during the game, to get you prepared for the first Buccaneer football this year:

The game is nationally televised on Fox, so no reason to miss it.
