Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Miami Dolphins : The Miami Dolphins enter tonight’s preseason contest with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers looking to establish some answers to the many questions that linger over their potential starting line-up for the 2019 season. After two practices with the Buccaneers, there is an expectation of who we will see perform well — but as always the game of football is going to come down to execution just as much as anything else.
Who will execute when it matters most tonight at Raymond James Stadium?
One Miami Dolphins fan couldn’t stop talking about his new favorite player while watching joint practices in Tampa Wednesday. It wasn’t a quarterback such as Josh Rosen or Ryan Fitzpatrick, or even cornerback Xavien Howard or possibly running back Kenyan Drake. It was undrafted rookie Preston Williams, a 6-foot-5, 218-pound receiver who has excited the Dolphins’ fan base, coaches and players this summer.
Week 2 of the preseason gets underway for the Buccaneers Friday evening as they host the Miami Dolphins.
The Dolphins have been in Tampa this week for joint practices with the Bucs leading up to their matchup. It was a decent week of practices that saw two days with Miami. But head coach Bruce Arians felt they could have practiced much better.
We may see the first team go out for a few series tonight but judging by Arians’ words this week, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if we see the reserves and guys player for a roster spot to start coming in a lot sooner than expected.

The Dolphins limp into Tampa with injuries at running back, wide receiver and safety, allowing for some younger players to make their mark with the Miami coaches in the second preseason game.
