The Cleveland Browns take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers tonight in an NFL football game on the third Friday of the 2016 preseason schedule. Both teams look to move forward after coming off 2015 seasons which didn’t go quite as planned, in this cross-conference matchup between traditionally hard-luck franchises. Tonight’s game has a primetime start time and airs on TV channels in some markets as well as being available as a live stream online option.
Cleveland jettisoned former first round draft pick Johnny Manziel in the offseason and imported another first round quarterback, Robert Griffin III. Now the Browns look to turn to corner along with weapons such as wide receiver John Gordon. Tampa Bay drafted Jameis Winston in the offseason and are now looking to build a competitive team around him under new head coach Dirk Koetter. The Bucs have the home field advantage tonight, as the two high profile QBs prepare to face off.
Tonight’s Cleveland Browns vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers NFL preseason football game will have a start time schedule of 8:00pm eastern time, and airs on network TV channels in both local markets, but will not be televised nationally. The game is also airing on a live stream online.
