Hey now, Monday Night Football is sort of back! Week 2 of the 2015 preseason schedule wraps up with the first Monday game of the season. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the Cincinnati Bengals. The matchup features the number one overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, Jameis Winston, set to take on Andy Dalton. Winston will continue to work on his connection with Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson, while Dalton and A.J. Green will continue their preparations for the 2015 season.
The 49ers have a viewing interest in this one. They face the Bengals in Week 15, hosting them on Sunday Night Football. It will be interesting to see how both teams are doing as that game approaches. That is firmly in the space where flexing can happen if NBC and the NFL are looking to boost the matchup. Let's hope both teams are on top of their game heading into December!
