Kicker Roberto Aguayo
While he might not even play, this totally looks like a revenge game for Roberto Aguayo. The Panthers longtime kicker Graham Gano has been sidelined with a knee injury this week that may keep him out on Sunday. As insurance the division rival sign hated second round pick Roberto Aguayo to the practice squad. Aguayo was a thorn in the Buccaneers side causing many head aches to fans and losing the Buccaneers some games last season. With his struggles they had to bring in Nick Folk as competition and they both turned out to be losers.
As a 71% career field goal kicker nothing is automatic with him. However would it be surprising if this is the game where he goes without a miss and at least a 50 yarder. The revenge factor always seems to bite the Buccaneers with former players performing well with other teams. Aqib Talib, Michael Bennett, and Legarrette Blount are the biggest success stories but would anyone really be surprised if Aguayo is successful with another team.
Those are some players that the Buccaneers will have to key in on. I really fear if Aguayo plays he will be perfect against this team. If the offense is efficient and the defense makes stops look at Ed Dickson and Julius Peppers to be the key contributors for the Panthers this week.
