The Tennessee Titans and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are facing off for Week 2 of the 2021 NFL preseason, airing on local television. We break down how to watch the matchup, particularly if you’re outside the broadcast region.

Will Brady and Evans click again this season in Tampa?

The Tennessee Titans and Tampa Bay Buccaneers meet up in Week 2 of the 2021 NFL preseason at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET. Titans broadcast info can be found here, while the game is set to air on WFLA 8 (NBC) in Tampa. Given that this is the preseason, we’ll see plenty of unknown and lesser known faces on the rosters. To keep track of who you’re watching checking out the Titans roster and the Buccaneers roster.

The defending Super Bowl champion Buccaneers dropped their preseason opener against the Cincinnati Bengals 19-14 in game where their starters merely dipped their toes in for a quick series or two before being pulled. Tom Brady was barely on the field in the first quarter before being immediately yanked after taking a sack, giving way for Blaine Gabbert, Ryan Griffin, and rookie Kyle Trask to take over at quarterback. Young backups who impressed included fourth-string running back Ke’Shawn Vaughn recording their lone touchdown of the evening and first-round linebacker Joe Tryon showing off his abilities as an edge rusher.

The Titans took care of business last weekend in a 23-3 victory over the Atlanta Falcons in a contest where none of their usual starters saw the field. Logan Woodside and Matt Barkley handled themselves well in quarterbacking duties by each throwing a touchdown while Mekhi Sargent took a bulk of the carries at running back in place of Derrick Henry.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this preseason contest, you’ll need to dig a little deeper for streaming options. While regular season games are usually available outside the two local markets, preseason games are much more limited. To view this game via live online stream, you’ll need to use NFL Game Pass. If you are not planning on watching every week of the preseason, the service offers a free seven-day trial.

The Bucs are a 1-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook and -120 on the moneyline. The Titans are a +100 moneyline underdog. The point total is installed at 35.
