The Tampa Bay Buccaneers take the field in preseason action at Cincinnati on Friday.

If the Buccaneers can pull off a victory it would be the eighth time the team has won against the Bengals.

The Bucs currently hold a series record of 7-4 against Cincinnati all-time.

Each of the last three meetings have resulted in a one-point decision.

Both teams last met in 2014 in which Cincinnati won a 14-13 contest.

The history of the Bengals and Buccaneers has a 41-year history dating back to 1976.

With this eighth victory against Cincinnati, they would become the team the Bucs have the most wins against in franchise history.

Friday night’s game will be our first look at the 2017 Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

I expect the starters to play about a series before those battling for roster spots take over.

During the first series, be on the lookout for Jameis Winston’s first touchdown.

At training camp, Winston has been creating chemistry with new free-agent signee DeSean Jackson.

The Buccaneers ranked towards the bottom half of the league in plays resulting in 25-yards or more. Brining in Jackson should improve this category and allow the offense to create more explosive plays.

Dirk Koetter believe that explosive plays can help win games as much as creating turnovers.

During Friday’s game, expect Winston to air the ball out and attempt to create explosive plays.

Another intriguing area to pay attention to would be the kicking game. Expect both Aguayo and Folk to take turns during field goal opportunities.
