EDTShareTweetShareShareBuccaneers’ 2019 preseason opponents releasedIt’s April, which means schedules for the upcoming NFL season start to trickle out little by little. On Tuesday, the league announced matchups for all four weeks of the preseason, withfull details of exact dates and times to be announced at a later date.The 2019 preseason schedule for the Buccaneers is as follows:Week 1 (Aug. 9, 7:30 p.m.): at Pittsburgh SteelersWeek 2 (Aug. 15-19): vs. Miami DolphinsWeek 3 (Aug. 22-25): vs. Cleveland BrownsWeek 4 (Aug. 29-30): at Dallas CowboysThat preseason opener in Pittsburgh on Aug. 9 will give new Tampa Bay head coach Bruce Arians a special re-debut, as he is a native of York, Pennsylvania and also won two Super Bowls an assistant with the Steelers. In week two, the Bucs will meet up with the Dolphins in Tampa. That matchup has been a common one throughout the years as far as preseason goes, and it will give the two teams a chance to run joint practices leading up to the exhibition. Tampa Bay will also host the Cleveland Browns in preseason action, marking the fourth time in the last five years that the two have met in August. This time will be a bit different, as the Browns could be a hot pick to win the AFC North after making some big moves — including making a trade for Odell Beckham Jr. — in the offseason. Of course, Beckham and the other new additions join an already-impressive core of young players that helped Cleveland to a 7-8-1 record in 2018, just one year after the team went 0-16.The Bucs round out their preseason with a first, as they will meet the Dallas Cowboys in exhibition play for the first time ever. After that trip to Dallas, the Bucs will return home to prepare for the 2019 regular season. All four preseason games will be televised locally by WFLA-TV. Exact dates and times for weeks two through four, as well as the regular season schedule, should be available as the month rolls on.

Fitzpatrick led the Buccaneers (3-4) to a field goal and a pair of touchdowns, including his tying 18-yard pass and conversion with 1:05 left.“It doesn’t take a lot to get this thing going Chris Godwin Jersey ,” Fitzpatrick said, moving his arm in a warmup motion.He finished 11 of 15 for 194 yards with a passer rating of 154.9, just shy of perfect.Was it good enough 鈥?and was Winston bad enough 鈥?to prompt another quarterback change in Tampa Bay?“Today is not the day I need to decide that,” coach Dirk Koetter said.Winston opened the season on suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy, and Fitzpatrick put up big numbers as his fill-in. Winston returned but has struggled, creating an opening for Fitzpatrick to reclaim the job.Winston was benched after matching his career high with four interceptions, the third time he’s thrown so many in his career. He has 10 interceptions, one fewer than all last season. Winston has thrown at least two interceptions in five straight games, tied for the most since 1990.“I’m definitely the reason we came up short with this game, and I know that I have to fix it,” said Winston, who was 18 of 35 for 276 yards and was sacked five times.Two of his throws sailed in the gusty wind, and two others were simply forced. The decisive one went directly to Bates, who had a clear path for his 21-yard return.“Just a bad decision,” Winston said. “Just a really bad decision. Just a really, really bad decision.”Tampa Bay tried to fix its porous defense by switching coordinators. The Bengals (5-3) had a 100-yard rusher and a 100-yard receiver in the first half while pulling ahead by 21 points. They managed only 95 yards in the second half, 50 of them in their drive to Randy Bullock’s 44-yard field goal on the final play.Tampa Bay has the most productive offense in the league when it’s not turning the ball over.DeSean Jackson caught a 60-yard touchdown pass that moved him ahead of Jerry Rice for the NFL record. He has 24 TDs of at least 60 yards. It also was Jackson’s 29th career TD of at least 50 yards, tying Randy Moss for second-most since the 1970 merger behind Rice’s 36.Mike Evans had six catches for 179 yards, including a 72-yard touchdown from Fitzpatrick . It was Fitzpatrick’s fifth TD pass of at least 50 yards this season 鈥?most in the NFL.And it wasn’t enough.“We can’t turn it over seven times in two weeks,” Koetter said. “That’s obvious.”
