Buccaneers: How Strong Can They Finish the Season?
Not Quite There
Bucs fans are riding high after a big road win in Arrowhead. Moving forward, this team has a tough road ahead. In the six remaining games, there are three divisional matchups, two matchups against first place teams, and a cross-country road trip.
The Seahawks and Cowboys are two of the hottest teams in football and will be the biggest tests for this rising Bucs squad. Unfortunately, I don’t see the Bucs coming out on top in either one.
Sweeping the remaining division games won’t be easy, either. I do believe the Bucs can beat both the Saints and Panthers, but see them splitting with New Orleans.
I’d say a realistic expectation in the remaining six games is 3-3. Anything better will be a very pleasant surprise and will put the Bucs in the playoff hunt. I just don’t think this team is playoff caliber quite yet.
