Gameday Tampa Bay

August 20th, 2022

Preseason Game 

Bucs at Titans

Kickoff: 7 p.m.

TV: WFLA-TV, Ch. 8, NFL Network. The NFL Network broadcast is subject to a local blackout. (Game will be rebroadcast Thursday, Aug. 25 at 4 p.m.)

Streaming: All NFL preseason games are available via NFL+.) The game will also be streamed on (geographic restrictions apply).

Radio: Buccaneers Radio Network WXTB-FM 97.9 in the Tampa-St. Petersburg region. (La transmisión de Bucaneros en español se puede escuchar en WQBN 96.1 o 106.7 FM y 1300 AM.) Both feeds will be streamed on (geographic restrictions apply). SiriusXM Channel 380.

Weather: Not bad football weather for August in Music City. The game is expected to have a kickoff temperature of 83 degrees with a 51 percent chance of rain, per That should drop to 77 by the game’s end and the rain chances will decrease throughout the game.  .

Outlook:  There needs to be a lot of questions answered for this game as the Bucs inch toward the regular season. Is Robert Hainsey capable of being the starting center. The Bucs say yes. Most fans scream no. If Hainsey can handle beastly Titans defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons tonight, it will go a long way to perhaps calming fans down. The same goes for left guard. Who wants it? We are roughly three weeks from the regular season and that position is still wide open. Joe is also keen to watch the wide receivers. A rotten game by a receiver tonight could spell doom in 10 days when the rosters have to be shaved to 53. And for crying out loud, please stay healthy Bucs. Way too many injuries already this summer!

Odds: Per Bucs +3.

    No more injuries!
    Lord forbid, but we lose another starting O-line, I wonder if we see Brady again?

    Tennessee Ready Baby!

  3. Goatfarmer Says:

    I can see the after game review on Monday — 5 more Bucs players out with soft tissue injuries. Oblique labia injuries and such.

  4. Vance Says:


    It’s Preseason game 2. The sky FALLING!


  5. Kody Says:

    Still don’t understand why the Bucs didn’t pick up Tretter. If anything, as insurance against other possible OL injuries.

  6. Beeej Says:

    He’d cost $8-$10 million, despite appearances to the contrary, there is no bottomless pit of cap room

  7. Oddball Says:

    Oh man, I hate those labia injuries Goatfarmer.

    I have a strange feeling that Brady bringing Gronk back with him . I wouldn’t be surprised . I remember hearing Gronk saying I’m going to make them sweat a little bit I could be wrong.

  11. richbucsfan Says:

    They need to stay stay healthy because after the dirty Saints game, there will be a hospital wing of Bucs with seriou steer ending injuries.

    Wish I was up in Nashville, to go to the game and eat me some Nashville Chicken!

  13. SB~LV Says:

    How can they not keep
    D Thompkins?

  14. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Oblique labia injuries usually stem from a severely concussed vulva.

    Very painful I hear.

  15. MadMax Says:

    Lmao, lol….you guys are killing me.

  16. Goatfarmer Says:

    My friend used to drive a Volvo.

  17. SKBucsFan Says:

    Would have to take a lot of punishment to get a labia injury.

  18. AbucAway Says:

    Yeah, those things can take a pounding

    Awwww, maaaannnn, Capt! Why’d you have to jinx us???! lol

  20. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I personally am going to enjoy this game. I missed last week because I had work…I still do this week, but only running tech, so I get to have the game up too.

  21. Eddie Marz Says:

    Hey at least Tom’s not hurt. GOBUCS! But where is he?

  22. mark2001 Says:

    GF.. I have to say that cheerleader has some nice soft tissues. And I see no injury.. they look completely healthy to me.

  23. Goatfarmer Says:

    Eddie — we don’t really know that. Geezie could have given Tom a groin injury. Quite possible.

    And mark2001 — I agree. I’ll be scanning the field for her tonight.

  24. Infomeplease Says:

    Good and bad news!! First the bad news…TB12 is absent! Now the good news… TB12 will be back very soon!!!! Go Bucs!!!!

  25. steele Says:

    I want the Titans to try overwhelming the Bucs OL with blitzes and tricky pass rushes all night. Because that it is the only way everyone will see the truth, whatever it is.

    Enough of the “they’re all good guys learning and working hard, we’re going to give it more patience” propaganda. Time to perform or not. Time for roster moves, or not.

    Coach must put together an offensive line that is going to protect Tom Brady . Toooo many injuries!!!!
