The Buccaneers are flying high but have a tough task ahead of them. Our trip back to primetime involves a date with the Dallas Cowboys. That’s right, the 11-2 Dallas Cowboys are up next. Despite losing to the Giants last week, the playoffs are already clinched and they are still in the NFC East driver’s seat.
The Bucs will have to bring their best in order to continue their winning streak.
Ezekiel Elliott has taken the league by storm. In his rookie season out of Ohio State, his 1,392 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns have him in the discussion for not only Rookie of the Year, but MVP as well.
He has already posted six-100 yard rushing performances. In short, he has been dominant. He will prove to be a huge litmus test for this ever-improving Bucs defense, and specifically the front seven.
So how to the Bucs stop him? That is the subject of this week’s roundtable discussion.
