What are your game predictions?
I keep going back and forth on this one. My heart tells me the Saints will win, because they have to. Because if they lose, their season is over. I want to think that their backs are against the wall, and that they’ll finally come out firing on all cylinders. They have the talent and the coaching to get it done.
But, when I’m thinking more clearly, it’s hard to predict a Saints victory. Their loss last week to the Lions was utterly deflating, and their backs were, by any measure, certainly against the wall then. They came out flat, and lost in every phase.
I’m going to have say Buccaneers take this one. But, like I said, I keep going back and forth. Ask me on another day and I may have said the Saints win it. But I think you guys get after Drew Brees, win the turnover battle, and pull out a close game at home. 27-21 Bucs.
A very sincere thank you to Ty for taking the time to do this. For those interested, I answered some questions Who Dat Dish had regarding the Buccaneers which can be found here.
We can’t stress enough how vital this game is for the Buccaneers and their postseason hopes. Not only can the Bucs really not afford to lose a game, winning eight straight is nearly impossible. If they are going to lose one, it certainly can’t be to a division rival this week. Especially with the chance of a division title still on the line.
