We’re only three weeks into the season, but this one feels slightly more than your typical regular season game. The Bucs and Rams are both 2-0 as Tampa Bay plays their first road game in Los Angeles.
While I expect to see points on both sides, I do think that the Bucs’ defense can make more splash games to win them the game. Joe Tryon-Shoyinka is playing with JPP out, but I think he’s exactly what this defense needs with an injection of a quick pass rusher that can get to the quarterback than most of the pass rushers that the Bucs have.
I also have a lot of confidence in Tyler Johnson and Scotty Miller stepping up with Antonio Brown out. It’s easy to forget that the Bucs have great talent and depth at receiver, you just haven’t seen it as much because the big three receivers are used so often. It’s a tough test for the Bucs and they are the defending champs for a reason. I think they come away with the win a very close contest. Tell us what you think in the PR message board!
Defense needs to get the offense off the field on third and 5+. Have to protect Brady, and allow him time to set up, as always, every game. Bucs have to make tough catches and make plays, defense needs to come away with good PBUs and tackle well on the perimeter, where the last two teams have been attacking the Bucs. Pass rush needs to get Stafford off his landmark, and sack him a few times. He is tough as they get as far as QBs so they have to get at him to disrupt timing. He won’t get flustered by pressure. His arm is too good.
Was in Tampa visiting family for first 2 awesome wins but back in NM. On Tv or Sunday Ticket backup! Anyway first 2 games were wins but we need some work. Hope they got it worked it out and come in with some BUCS Attitude against the rams. GO BUCS all the way!!!!!!!!!!
When you give away an easy batted ball INT to set the tone and get momentum on a QB who could have clearly pressed too hard afterwards. That was it. You allowed Stafford to overcome the nerves we needed to take advantage of. It was a sign of what’s to come. To me I’ll never understand an NFL DB not able to catch.
That said they can celebrate n act like they’ve won the SB in week 3 and we’ll see come January. We have a game or two every year that’s a stinker
and today’s one of them. Down two CB n best WR vs zone coverage, it is what it is.
I know this , there BETTER be a sign of life in the form of a pass rush or they’ll be home early- and IF lack of corner depth bites you in the ass, thank yourselves for taking a developmental QB in 2nd rd the ONLY position we definitely did NOT NEED.
