    Patriots - Bucs 5 Things To Watch For
    By: Steve Balestrieri

    Tavon Wilson will likely see a lot of playing time with the first unit defense due to the injury to Pat Chung....

    Is the game being shown on TV in RI? I did some googling but I can't find it.

    I have Cox.

    I see that the CBS station in Providence is showing preseason football. I assume it's the Pats game.

    CBS is showing Bears/Giants nationally (except for Boston, Atlanta, Columbus, Miami and few others)

    Pats broadcast will be on the following channels

    WBZ 4 (CBS; Boston)
    WMUR 9 (ABC; Manchester NH)
    WTNH 8 (ABC; New Haven CT)
    WNAC 64.2 (MyTV; Providence)*
    *Cox 811; FiOS 14
    WWLP 22 (NBC; Springfield MA)
    WMTW 8 (ABC; Portland ME)
    WFVX 22 (FOX; Bangor ME)
    WVNY 22 (ABC; Burlington VT)
    KFVE 5 (MyTV; Honolulu)

    But when I was looking at the Pats coverage it showed the Bucs coverage, sad really. The Tampa CBS is showing the game on Tape Delay and opting to show Bears/Giants live.

    My guess is the MyTV station there opted for Patriots pre-season games.

    That's an over-the-air channel.

    But it's the myRITV (MyTV) channel

    Verizon 14 (SD) or 514 (HD)
    Cox 811 (SD) or 1015 (HD)
    Comcast 292 (SD) or 820 (HD, some areas)

    It's the over the air (antenna) designation or raw cable feed minus cable box designator your digital (hopefully!) TV sees and labels it.

    The secondary should be interesting. Ras-IR pretty much played the entire game against the Eagles, didn't get hurt, and didn't look remotely out of place. Gregory looks as if his experience will be able to help settle down the puppies back there, and tonight could be a good test of this if Chung can't play and Wilson takes his place.

    I wonder how much time Dennard will get.

    Nice. We get to see Cannon struggle mightily at RT again.

    Does Adrian Clayborn line up on that side, or opposite Solder? For whichever (or perhaps both), he'll provide some very good competition.

    I believe Clayborn lines up over the LT, but I could be wrong.

    Man, sure does seem like this guy has been injured his entire time with the Patriots so far.. ;)

    And Im especially interested in seeing how Jeff Demps fairs with a strong secondary interest (ha) in Tavon Wilson. -I still drink enough of the Belichick kool-aid that Im always especially hopeful the Great Hoodie's draft "reaches" will once and for all prove his evil genius to all the second-guessers.

    All this crap about trading Welker made me think that the Patriots are just platooning receivers in this three games in ten days schedule. Branch game one - Lloyd, Stallworth and one of the tight ends tonight, and Welker, Gaffney and the other tight end on Wednesday against the Giants. They all get some PT and nobody gets a look at the whole group at work as a unit.

    All the running backs are active tonight. That is probably the most significant group offensively to watch. We'll get a feel for the FBs and how they fit in, if at all. I'd love to see Larsen or Kettani play an important role. Serious fullback blocking presence is something we needed in the AFCC and the SB last year. I can still see no FBs on the 53.

    I'm certainly hoping so, but not expecting it... unless he's been wearing 100 weights around his ankles in his daily life to improve his foot quickness.

    I will be very curious if there is a strong fullback presence in this game. And even still, if it's effective. They might use a fullback, but just to test how effective it is. So if we see the fullback tonight, it might not mean they're planning on carrying one. It's a valuable roster spot.

    1. Does Solder improve?
    2. How does Tavon Wilson look playing meaningful snaps w/ starters?
    3. How many points does first team D give up
    4. Does Dennard look like a 2nd round pick or a 7th round pick?
    5. Play of Chandler Jones

    Is Cannon still leaking like a sieve?
    Is Brady comfortable in the pocket, or not?
    Can the 1s on D force 3 and outs?
    Can the Patriots run it when they want to?

    Considering that he's on the bubble, kinda surprised that Will Allen isn't playing. Also, wonder if Jeff Demps is playing.
