It won't be easy.
If the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hope to improve on last season's 10-6 record, they better be ready for a stronger, tougher list of opponents.
The schedule for your consumption:
9-18: at Minnesota
10-3: Indianapolis (8:30 p.m. ESPN)
10-9: at San Francisco
10:16: New Orleans
10-23: Chicago (in London)
11-6: at New Orleans
11-20: at Green Bay
11-27: at Tennessee
12-11: at Jacksonville
Do you see 10 wins on this schedule?
12-17: Dallas (8:20 p.m. NFL Network)
12-24: at Carolina
1-1: at Atlanta
So get out those crystal balls, get out the pencils (with erasers) and start filling in your pre-pre-pre-preseason Ws and Ls.
We'll take some time to dwell on this one.
