TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will prepare for the 2019 season with three preseason games against AFC opponents and one against an NFC foe.
The Bucs will travel to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers at Heinz Field on Friday, August 9. The Buccaneers fell short against the Steelers 30-27 on Monday Night Football in the 2018 season.

Tampa Bay will host the Miami Dolphins the following week between August 15 and 19 for an in-state showdown.
On Week 3 of preseason, the new-look Cleveland Browns will be in town between August 22 and 25 at Raymond James Stadium. The visiting Browns generated a lot of buzz in the offseason after acquiring star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. from the New York Giants.
The Bucs will wrap up preseason with a Week 4 matchup against the defending NFC East champions Dallas Cowboys. Kickoff for that game is set for either August 29 or 30.
Tampa Bay is looking to rebound from a disappointing 2018 season. The Bucs finished the season 5-11 and missed the playoffs for the 11th straight season.
