The Buccaneers lost a heartbreaker last week against the Falcons, and we will see just exactly what kind of team we have when they take on a fierce but beatable Broncos team Sunday. Good teams bounce back, and we’re all under the assumption that’s what we have in Tampa, but it’s going to take some convincing before people blindly buy into what’s happening.
That can happen on Sunday with a win against a Peyton Manning-led Broncos team that is trying to win the AFC West this week. With a win against the Bucs, Denver can win the AFC West and make it to 10 wins on the season. The Bucs aren’t quite to 10 wins yet but a win gives them seven with four left and the very real possibility of finishing Greg Schiano’s first season 11-5 at best.
Speaking of clinching the division, the Atlanta Falcons haven’t won the NFC South yet and they’re counting on a Buccaneers loss today to get them that title. If the Bucs lose, the Falcons win the NFC South but with a win the Buccaneers can make the Falcons wait for that title if only for just another week.
We will have live updates from Denver down below, so be sure to check in and get in the conversation as the Bucs take on the Broncos. What matchup are you looking forward too, will Peyton Manning shred the Bucs secondary and can Tampa Bay win this game?
