Just days after the NFL made its preseason schedule available, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have gone ahead and confirmed the actual dates of the games for each of the four weeks of the preseason.
Our 2019 preseason home dates and times have been announced.

As the Bucs detailed, they will open the Bruce Arians era in the preseason at Pittsburgh. And, it is the sixth consecutive season Tampa Bay will play on the road to start things in August. They will do so on Friday night August 9th at Heinz Field, and it is the first time that they are playing the Steelers since 1998, when the two teams played the Hall of Fame game in Canton, Ohio.
The Buccaneers will then play host to the Dolphins and have announced that that game will also be on Friday night, August 16th, at Raymond James Stadium. The two teams are also slated to practice in the days leading up to their preseason matchup in Tampa. The Buccaneers and the Dolphins have played 31 times in preseason history, which is the most common opponent ever for Tampa Bay.
Likewise, the Bucs will be back home a week later on Friday night, August 23rd, when they play the Cleveland Browns. They have met the Browns 10 times in August preparation in the past, including as recently as two years ago.
Finally, the Buccaneers will end the preseason playing at AT&T Stadium against the Dallas Cowboys and that game will be on Thursday night August 29th. Although the Buccaneers played Dallas in week 16 a year ago in Big D, they have never played the Cowboys in the preseason in their history.
We wrote previously about the rest of the Dolphins and Jaguars preseason schedules. That includes, Miami and Jacksonville playing against each other in a nationally televised game on FOX in week three.
The Jaguars will also play a home game against the Eagles in week two in August, and obviously, the Intrigue is former Eagles Super Bowl MVP, now Jaguars free agent quarterback, Nick Foles, will be going against his old team.
