Buccaneers: What to Watch for in Sunday’s Game
Come Out Swinging
Although this season seems like a disappointment because the Bucs missed the playoffs, the right strides were made. The defense improved and Mike Evans became the monster we all knew he was going to be. Going into week 17 with not a whole lot to play for (Yes, I know there’s a chance, but let’s be real), I would like to see the Bucs come out swinging like their lives depended on it.
That would tell me that this team is playing for something bigger. In his weekly press conference Jameis Winston made several references to finishing off the season strong, a win against a division opponent at home would be just that. The defense getting back to its regular self would be ideal as well. The defense hasn’t been as good as it was in the five game win streak. All things considered, 9-7 is a lot different from 8-8.
