The second week of the 2016 NFL preseason has started, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Jacksonville Jaguars tomorrow. With two joint practices this week, both teams got to know each other fairly well before the game, so Saturday's experience should be interesting.
The Bucs plan to give their starters a decent amount of playing time this week, as they look to really build their starters' quality of play this entire preseason. The first week saw Bucs starters getting more action than most, and Dirk Koetter suggested this week that that trend would continue. With the defense getting a schematic and personnel overhaul, and Jameis Winston seeking to improve in his second season, that's probably a good thing. Until someone gets injured, that is.
Another reason to pay attention to this game: the Bucs and Jaguars are pretty similar overall. They have young, improving quarterbacks. They're coming off disappointing seasons that still showed some potential. The offense is ahead of the defense. And, oh, they're both Florida teams. I guess that's a thing.
Here's everything you need to know to watch tomorrow's game.
