Preseason Week 3 player of the game: WR Brandon Powell

Bucs Score Kick-6 Against Lions

Bucs Score Kick-6 Against Lions

Connor Cook and EJ Manuel have been competing for the job, but head coach Jon Gruden didn't come close to naming a victor on Friday.

"I don't know", Gruden said, via the San Francisco Chronicle. To see who will succeed and struggle, here are five bold predictions for the Packers in Week Three. "Clearly without playing a game yet, I think we'll be talking about him at the end of the season as a second-year player that's made the jump". It's been too inconsistent.

'Dodger killer' Justin Verlander gets $1M charge at LA hotel
One of the biggest names in American sport almost choked on his food when he received his restaurant bill recently. During his regular-season career, the 35-year-old Verlander is a flawless 3-0 with a 2.91 ERA against the Dodgers.

Let's just say that this dress rehearsal didn't look like the Lions are very ready for the curtains to go up on Monday night in two weeks. Manuel, who started one game while Derek Carr was out with a back injury previous year, was 8-of-12 for 87 yards.

After the torrid storms passed through on Friday and the 50-60 fans which chose to stick around for the contest settled in for some National Football League action, they found themselves watching what appeared to be a fairly well-oiled machine schooling a disorganized, sloppy one. Some players could be in good standing, but one bad game could instantly have them on the roster bubble.
