How to Watch: Lions vs. Buccaneers

Check out how to watch the Bucs’ preseason home opener on Friday night.


The Buccaneers will host their first game of the preseason against the Detroit Lions on Friday, August 24 at 8:59 p.m. inside Raymond James Stadium.

The Bucs will be the home team for the first time in 2018 – and with most of the starters getting significant reps for the home crowd. As is customary with the third preseason game, the projected starters will get a good amount of work, which will translate into Bucs fans seeing the new look defensive line or maybe even a spectacular touchdown catch from just one of the Bucs' many flashy receivers firsthand. If you can't be there, the next best thing is watching it on television. It will be a primetime broadcast on CBS.
