Raymond James Stadium | Sunday, September 12 | 1:00 p.m. EST (CBS)
Pick: Buccaneers 24, Browns 20
190 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 5 rush yards, 2 INTFirst test against the Bucs should determine whether Delhomme has shaken off the ghosts of last season.
1 rec, 10 rec yards, 125 rush yards, 1 rush TDThe Browns will run him into the ground, especially now that Montario Hardesty is out.
4 rec, 50 yardsMuch of Massaquoi's success this season will depend on whether Jake Delhomme can get back to playing like his former self.
8 rec, 100 yards, 1 TDIf Cribbs could carve out a consistent role in this offense, watch out. His explosiveness is second to none.
2 rec, 20 yardsComing off a solid offseason preceded by a forgettable rookie campaign, Robiskie fits the definition of a sleeper. He'll be the second receiver in Cleveland.
1 rec, 10 yardsCould really bloom if given enough opportunities. Unfortunately Jake Delhomme is throwing passes this year, not Tom Brady.
2 PATs, 2 FGsDawson made 17-of-19 field goals a year ago, but as with most kickers it's all about situation. The Browns offense won't afford him many opportunitites.
2 sacks, 3 INT, 2 FumblesThe Browns face one of their easier matchups against a Bucs team also in the throes of rebuiliding.
200 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 15 rush yards, 3 INTBig opportunities for Freeman as he faces last year's 29th ranked pass defense. However, he missed the last two preseason weeks with a thumb injury. Check injury reports.
4 rec, 30 rec yards, 30 rush yards, 1 rush TDThis should be a good match-up for him, Cleveland ranked 28th in the league in their rush defense last year.
1 rec, 5 rec yards, 40 rush yardsHe enters the season as Cadillac Williams' backup but could see his role grow in the offense. He needs to take advantage of opportunities he will get against Cleveland's defense.
8 rec, 75 yards, 1 TDCleveland should prove to be a good matchup for WIlliams in his first regular season game.
2 rec, 30 yardsBenn needs to prove he can play in more than just the preseason as he suits up for his first regular season game. The Browns are a tantalizing matchup, but it remains to be seen how involved he'll be in the passing game.
5 rec, 60 yardsLooks to be the go-to receiver against his former team in a good matchup. Check to make sure his knee is healthy.
2 PATs, 3 FGsLooks to improve on his field goal percentage which took a dip last season.
2 sacks, 2 INTThe Bucs need to improve their rush defense, which ranked 32nd in yards allowed last season. Still, the matchup against Delhomme could prove a fruitful one for Tampa's DBs.
