The Jacksonville Jaguars are hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to open up EverBank Field for the first time in 2016 and it will also be the first time first-round pick Jalen Ramsey sets foot on the field after missing the opener last Thursday.

Will Dante Fowler do well with increased snaps and a better rhythm at edge? Can Blake Bortles and Allen Robinson continue to play as though it’s Week 9? Will the Chris Ivory-T.J. Yeldon one-two punch continue to be effective? Can Myles Jack get some reps with the first team? (Please?)


How to watch the game

Here’s everything you need to know to watch the Jaguars vs. Buccaneers game!

Live blog

10:45 PM: And after another field goal, that's the ball game. Jaguars lose 27-21, but you should be very, very excited about this team come regular season time.


9:56 PM: And now Jeff Linkenbach is currently being evaluated for a concussion too. The left tackle behind him is, uh, Kelvin Beachum? Uh oh.

9:48 PM: Man, Peyton Thompson did everything right too. He's being examined for a concussion.

9:30 PM: Chad Henne is having an off night and he's got a guy named Jeff Linkenbach blocking for him. I'd have checked out mentally too.

9:04 PM: Halftime! Buccaneers score a quick touchdown and field goal in the final two minutes of the first half. The Jaguars are outplaying them though. If this were a regular season game, it'd be a blowout.

8:41 PM: Blake Bortles likely ends his night going 8-for-11 for 85 yards and two touchdowns. Whew.

8:38 PM: omg blake and hurns

8:25 PM: This wasn't bad coverage by Nick Marshall. Jameis Winston just had a great throw and Mike Evans had a great catch. Jaguars and Buccaneers tied 7-7.

8:06 PM: Blake Bortles with a quick dump off when receivers are covered. T.J. Yeldon uses speed to get it into the end zone. Jaguars up 7-0 on Buccaneers!

7:47 PM: Roberto Aguayo, a second-round pick, just missed a 32-yard field goal. Bryan Anger, a third-round pick, was the holder.

6:59 PM: omg

6:38 PM: Blake Bortles, Allen Robinson, and the Bold City Brigade look to be in midseason form through one week of preseason. MY COLUMN:

6:19 PM: Jalen Ramsey is set to make his Jaguars debut today. He'll probably get to play about a quarter.

6:01 PM: Still no Sheldon Day. :-(

5:46 PM: Per @ESPNDiRocco, Gus Bradley said the starters would see less time than a normal Week 2 preseason game. For reference, Chad Henne entered last year's Week 2 game with 8:01 left in the second quarter. But if Blake Bortles & Co. can have a couple of drives like they did last week against the New York Jets, just sit them as soon as you can, right?

4:47 PM: Damn, Bold City Brigade. Back at it again with the killer tailgates.

4:30 PM: Another former Jaguars running back getting released. Pour your beers out for Bernard Pierce, according to Adam Schefter.

1:25 PM: Which Jaguars player messed up Doug Martin in practices this week?

12:00 PM: @ColeFartley with another game day gem.

11:50 AM: I’ve never been this hype over a jersey announcement before.

9:32 AM: Can’t. Stop. Watching.

9:00 AM: Gus Bradley wants you to slow down about Dante Fowler getting kicked out of Thursday’s joint practice against the Buccaneers.

8:30 AM: Kelvin Beachum isn’t playing, according to the Jaguars coaching staff on Friday.
