The Buccaneers and Lions face off in Week 3 of the preseason. For Tampa Bay, it’ll be their preseason home opener at Raymond Jams Stadium.

The Bucs first team on both sides of the ball will be in for the majority of the game. We’ll be able to get a better gist of the play and perhaps get a feel for how the player — new and old — come together.

With that said, it’ll be interesting to see how the defense plays. We have been anxious to see how players like Jason Pierre-Paul, Vinny Curry, and Beau Allen fit into the defense with a considerable amount of playing time together. And with injuries along the offensive line, one would have to wonder if they can hold off Detroit’s pass rush and keep them sack-less in the preseason.
