Predict the Score:



  • QB Josh McCown spent 2014 with the Buccaneers. He started 11 games and threw for 2,206 and 11 touchdowns. OLB Scott Solomon played six games with Buccaneers last season before joining the Browns.

  • Former members of the Browns now playing in Tampa Bay include RB Bobby Rainey, OL Garrett Gilkey, and OL Reid Fragel.

  • This is the first time the Browns and the Buccaneers have met in the preseason since 2001. The last time the Browns traveled to Tampa Bay during the preseason was in 1999.

  • These teams last met on November 2, 2014, with the Browns defeating the Buccaneers 22-17. It was a back-and-forth affair, but the Browns did not face current quarterback Josh McCown. Instead, they took on Mike Glennon, who tossed two touchdown passes to WR Mike Evans, the second of which gave the Buccaneers a 17-16 lead in the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, QB Brian Hoyer hit WR Taylor Gabriel for a 34-yard score. Cleveland stopped the Buccaneers' attempt at a game-winning drive in the final two minutes of the game.

  • We will have a game day thread up here at 6:00 PM ET, along with plenty of in-game and post-game analysis.
