Every team in the NFL this season will play a nationally televised game on Thursday night. This week, it’s the Bucs turn.
The 2-4 Bucs visit the 5-2 Minnesota Vikings on Thursday night football. For both teams, it’s an uphill climb to get ready on a short week. In a conference call today with reporters, Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier called the task of preparing on a short week “very challenging”.
Bucs defensive end Michael Bennett says the downside of getting ready in such as short period of time is trying to stay in good physical shape. Bennett points out that during a normal week, it typically takes until Wednesday or Thursday for his body to get over the pounding from a Sunday game. Bucs players say the coaching staff has does a great job of protecting the players with some much needed rest.
The team didn’t practice on Monday but they were on the practice field on Tuesday. They will fly to Minnesota on Wednesday.
