After a highly disappointing loss in Arizona in Week 6, the Buccaneers (2-3) will look to rebound on Sunday in Buffalo against the Bills (3-2). Here, we break down five players who can change the outcome of this week’s game.
The Buccaneers were looking okay at 2-2 through their first four games, but a bad 38-33 loss to the Cardinals has things looking a little darker. Tampa Bay started very slowly and lost quarterback Jameis Winston before a furious comeback attempt fell short. It’s looking like Winston should be okay to go on Sunday. That’s a big deal, considering this might be a huge game in terms of where this season might go. The Bucs will need to play full 60 minutes, which isn’t something they’ve really been able to do all year.
Buffalo is coming off its bye week and looking to bounce back from a loss to Cincinnati on Oct. 8. The Bills are right in the thick of the AFC East race, trailing the Patriots by a half-game. They are tied with the Dolphins (3-2) and lead the Jets (3-3) by just a half-game, so Sunday’s game carries a lot of weight for them as well.
This is an interesting matchup between two teams that don’t meet very often. Which five players can most impact the outcome of this Sunday’s game?
