A national television audience will tune in to check out the development of rookie quarterback Jameis Winston. In his debut with the Buccaneers last week against the Vikings the rookie QB threw for 131 yards and had a pick. He finished his work going 9 of 19 passing. Backup QB Mike Glennon saw work in six regular season games in 2014 and has lost his job to Winston as head coach Lovie Smith named the rookie quarterback as the week one starter as camp started. Glennon in his 2015 preseason debut hit 9 of 17 passes for 98 yards. For Tampa Bay to show improvement from a last place team in 2014 they will need to get more contribution from their run game which was a huge disappointment a season ago. Doug Martin ran for just 3.7 yards a year ago. Charles Sims a third round pick in 2014 had a poor rookie season with 2.8 yards per run average on 66 carries.

The Cincinnati Bengals have high standards in 2015. They are simply sick and tired of early playoff exits as the club is filled with talent on both sides of the football. During the lean years the Bengals did a good job of drafting players to fill needs to make the club good enough to win the division and earn playoff berths. Andy Dalton will have to be a better decision maker if the team is ever going to go deep in the playoffs. In 2014 he passed for 19 touchdowns but threw 17 interceptions and had a poor outing in the wildcard loss to the Indianapolis Colts. A.J. Green and Marvin Jones lead a very good receiving corps.
