The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in town this week for joint practices with the Patriots in preparation for the exhibition game between the two teams Friday night at Gillette Stadium at 8 p.m.
The sessions between the two teams continues something that has become a tradition in recent years, where teams will come in and practice for a few days leading up to a game.
But are the joint practices a good thing? Especially given the Patriots will face the Bucs in Week 3?
“I don’t think it’s a big deal,” said Andy Hart on UNO's Sports Tonight. “By the time that Week 3 game comes, you’re going to have two weeks of [regular-season] game tape. We’re going to know to some degree what the Patriots are doing.”
