Gameday Tampa Bay

September 11th, 2022

Game 1

Bucs at Cowboys

Kickoff: 8:20 p.m.

TV: WFLA-TV Channel 8.

Streaming: Fans may stream the broadcast from, or on a mobile device using the Buccaneers official app or NFL+. Geographic restrictions apply.

Radio: Buccaneers Radio Network WXTB-FM 97.9 in the Tampa-St. Petersburg region (Transmisiones de radio en español en WTMP-FM 96.1 y WMGG-AM 1470 en Tampa). Additional stations throughout Florida on the Buccaneers Radio Network can be found here. The game will also be broadcast on SiriusXM Channel 226 (Buccaneers Radio Network broadcast).

Weather: Jerry’s World is a dome. So no issue with the weather. Now for tailgaters hanging out in the Walmart parking lot across the street, per, it won’t get as hot as you may expect in mid-September in Texas. Highs will be in the mid-80s. That will hold until kickoff. For the hardcores still going strong after the game, temperatures should be in the low-70s.

Odds: Per BetMGM, as of Saturday evening, Bucs -2; over/under 50.5.

Injuries: Bucs — Out: CB Zyon McCollum (hamstring). Questionable: WR Russell Gage (hamstring), WR Chris Godwin (knee). Cowboys — Out: WR Michael Gallup (knee). Questionable: S Jayron Kearse (neck).

Outlook: We’ve heard the kvetching and gnashing of teeth since the second day of training camp: Can center Robert Hainsey, making his first NFL start, handle the rigors of the NFL? More importantly, will he be able to stop Demarcus Lawrence and Micah Parsons, who you have to believe will be coming up the middle multiple times. When Aaron Stinnie went down with a knee injury a few weeks ago, you knew the starting gig at left guard now belonged to rookie Luke Goedeke. Coaches openly have said Goedeke needs work pass blocking. That didn’t comfort Bucs fans when the greatest NFL player (who is slightly more mobile than a mailbox) is 45 and needs to keep his jersey clean. Simply put, if Hainsey and Goedeke can handle themselves, the Bucs should be in good shape. Defensively, Joe isn’t sweating here. The Cowboys lost a lot of offensive punch in the passing game from last year. The Bucs should be better in pass defense, just health alone should make a big difference. So no matter how you slice it, the eyes of the nation will be on Goedeke and Hainsey. Not sure that’s how you want to make your first starts in the league, but here we are.

Fun fact: Tom Brady has never lost to the Cowboys. He is 6-0.

    I’m watching the NFL channel in some business travel berg, bored out of my mind. They are highlighting the Rams path to the Super Bowl, yet a reminder that Bowles decision-making lapses aren’t just limited to his NY Jets days.

    Breaking: Falcons have been eliminated from playoff contention.

  18. AbucAway Says:

    What will make me more happy than a win tonight? Nothing! But a close second is when the new giddy-up and LFG! videos don’t have those ridiculous practice helmets showcased. It’s like they turned the helmets inside out, or at least that’s what it looked like in my helmet back in the day. Safety? Fine. LFG Videos? Nope.
    Goedeke is going to hold the line like a gladiator…
    I’m going to hold my beer…
