So here we go – the start of the most brutal part of the Buccaneers schedule, in which they’ll be away from home for the next six weeks. First up: a matchup against the NFC Champion Rams in Los Angeles.
Can the Bucs recover from last week’s meltdown against the Giants? Can Matt Gay get back on track? How will the Bucs be able to control Aaron Donald, not to mention Sean McVay’s high-powered offense? These are just some of the things to look for on Sunday.
Tampa Bay will be without their first-round draft pick Devin White again. And center Ryan Jensen is questionable. Lord help the offensive line if they’re not healthy and Donald is already licking his chops.
The Bucs are a heavy underdog in this one, as you’d expect. But if they can pull off the upset, it would be a huge confidence booster moving forward.
Fox has the game on Sunday, with Chris Myers and Daryl Johnson in the broadcast booth at the Coliseum.
Finally, a note to my readers: I am going on vacation on Sunday, so I will not be providing a recap here after the game. But I will be keeping tabs on it from fabulous Las Vegas. I will resume the blog with coverage of the next game against New Orleans.
