Finally the last week of preseason is upon us. Last chance for coaches and fans alike to see who will land themselves on the final roster before the real games start next week.
And for the Buccaneers, it will be the last chance at seeing 1st overall pick Jameis Winston before making the final decision if it is worth it to throw him out there week one with such a bad offensive line.
Kick off is set for 7:00 PM ET as these cross state rivals hope to put these exhibition games behind them and get ready for the real thing.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The spotlight has been on QB Jameis Winston for several years now, so it’s nothing new to him. What is new though is the pain that comes from opposing NFL defenders tackling, sacking, knocking down and applying pressure on nearly all of Winston’s drop backs this summer. But Winston says he accepts the challenge
Everyone knows it is never easy for a first year QB to make the jump seamlessly from NCAA to the NFL, but this has been painful to watch.
Head Coach Lovie Smith said that he plans on resting his starters, as most coaches around the league will do the same in this final week.
The Bucs are looking forward to their fist game when they face off against the Tennessee Titans and the #2 overall pick Marcus Mariota. Which I’m sure will draw higher interest out of market than usual for the Winston-Mariota matchhup.
All hail the Fish as they are heading into the final week looking to finally get over the hump and lead the AFC East. They have a pretty good chance too.
With key additions on both sides of the ball, this team looks pretty dangerous on paper, more dangerous than the Champs themselves.
Ryan Tannehill has some pretty big targets to throw to this year, and the running game isn’t too shabby either.
This team has been pretty close for a few years now, but I think they made the moves this offseason to cement their rise to the top.
Ndamukong Suh is a show stopper. Yes he is controversial, yes he has made some questionable decisions on the football field that has hurt his team, but a few 15 yard penalties must’ve been worth the risk for the Dolphins. And I agree with them.
