49ers vs Buccaneers
Welcome to watch 49ers vs Buccaneers Live Streaming NFL 2019 regular week 1 Game tonight. How to watch Buccaneers vs 49ers football game Online.
The San Francisco 49ers officially return to real football today! The preseason is a wrap and we are back to regular season football for the first time in over eight months. The 49ers get things going this afternoon at 1:25 P.M. when they head to Raymond James Stadium to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The game will air on FOX as a regional broadcast. Kenny Albert and Ronde Barber will be calling the game.
The 49ers ride into the season with way less momentum than last year. Now that everyone is healthy, they can try this winning football thing again. They already have some issues, namely the loss of running back Jerick McKinnon to more knee issues and Nick Bosa is still a question mark on just how healthy he is.
The Buccaneers have made some changes. They fired Dirk Koetter and brought in former Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians. Fired New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles is serving as Arians’ defensive coordinator and just those two names mean an improved Buccaneers offense.
The 49ers will be without wide receivers Jalen Hurd, Trent Taylor, and safety Jimmie Ward. The Buccaneers will be without safety Justin Evans and quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Wide receiver Mike Evans was questionable due to an illness, but is expected to play.

What to Know
San Francisco and Tampa Bay will face off at 4:25 p.m. ET Sept. 8 at Raymond James Stadium to kick off their 2019 seasons. Coming off of an uninspired 4-12 last-season record, San Francisco has set their aspirations higher this season. Likewise, last year was nothing to brag about for Tampa Bay (5-11), so the squad is looking forward to a new start.
A couple last-season defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The 49ers ranked second worst with respect to passing touchdowns allowed last year, where the team gave up 35. Tampa Bay ranked worst with respect to touchdowns allowed last season, where the team gave up 53. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
The point spread is more or less neutral, so fans should expect a close contest. We’ll see if the game is as close as the oddsmakers expect, or if one of these teams has a surprise blowout in them.
