Friday, August 14 should have seen the Tampa Bay Buccaneers kick off their 2020 preseason in Pittsburgh against the Steelers. But thanks to COVID-19, that won’t happen as the NFL has cancelled the entire preseason due to the pandemic.
No preseason, no problem – right?
Let’s face it. Not many of us like the NFL preseason, but it’s a necessary evil for the league.
Most fans don’t care for it because teams charge full price admission for somewhat meaningless exhibition games. Most media members don’t care for it because the games are often played on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday night – and are rather meaningless and often boring.
