Time: Indianapolis plays in a domed stadium but the Colts could have the roof open. If so, the temperature at kickoff will be a pleasant 81 degrees under clear skies, according to AccuWeather.com. The temperature will cool down to 75 by the end of the game. There is no rain forecast.
Outlook: Yeah, it’s kind of a warm-up for beginners, at least beginners who will dress. For the rest, this will be the last chance to impress the Bucs that they belong on the roster. The Bucs and the rest of the NFL are to whittle the roster down to 53 by Tuesday afternoon, Aug. 30. The key places to watch here are special teams, receivers and left guard. Rookie Luke Goedeke starts tonight and how he plays will likely determine whether he starts Week 1 in Dallas, or maybe the Bucs make a roster change there? The Bucs are crazy at receiver. With only one preseason game remaining, Joe will guess the Bucs have an idea who will make the roster as a receiver. However, good play on special teams could either win a job for a guy or lock in a job for a receiver. There are so many good receivers on the Bucs’ roster that it’s not impossible to believe that a bad road, a fall, a mistake or rotten special teams play could be the difference between collecting an NFL check next week or pay for a moving service. . The main objective of the Bucs in this game? Joe doesn’t want to see a single injury. That’s the real goal tonight.
Odds: By BetMGM.com Bucs +3.
