The Tampa Bay Buccaneers play the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night, only the team's second Monday or Sunday night game since firing Jon Gruden -- and it's in the preseason. This will also be the first time the team's home crowd will get to see Jameis Winston play in the pewter and red.
Winston is likely to play all of the first half, as he did in the team's first preseason game. The Bucs are doing everything they can to get their quarterback ready for opening day, and that means giving him plenty of playing time so he can adjust to his new level of competition. The rest of the first team won't get that much playing time, at least on defense. On offense, the Bucs may choose to give the starters some extra playing time to develop some chemistry with Winston.
The Bengals should give Winston a good run for his money. They actually won their first game handily, against the New York Giants, and have a very solid defense -- highlighted by Carlos Dunlap, Vontaze Burfict and a now healthy Geno Atkins.
Here's everything you need to know to watch the game.
