Big Game From the Backfield
Look we have seen this Bucs team put up points in the run game. With a depleted WR core and a high-powered Saints offense, the Bucs have to get the run game going. The Bucs stable of running backs has proved to be deeper than we previously thought coming into this season, a couple of guys have had to step up due to injury. The Bucs haven’t had a 100 yard rusher since San Francisco. I think the Bucs will need exactly that with the Saints coming into Tampa. The formula for stopping any high-powered offense is to keep the ball out of their hands. The Saints have however, proven they can stop the run ranking 11th in total rush yards. The plan shouldn’t change any as the Bucs had 30 rushing attempts against the 3rd ranked rushing defense in the Chargers. I expect nothing less than that on Sunday against the Saints.
Bold prediction (kinda?) Martin goes over 100 on the ground and Sims goes over 50 in the passing game.
