Buccaneers vs New York Jets: Game Changers for Week 10
By Bailey Adams
The Buccaneers (2-6) watched their playoff hopes sink even more on Sunday with a 30-10 loss in New Orleans. This week, they return home to host the Jets (4-5). Here, we look at five players that can change the outcome of the game.
Despite all the hype and talk of how talented they were going to be, the Buccaneers have fallen flat on their faces this season. At the halfway point of the season, they sit at 2-6 and way outside of the playoff picture. It would likely take eight straight wins to make the postseason at this point, which is as unlikely as it gets considering what we’ve seen from the team so far this year.
Tampa Bay will take the field on Sunday without a couple of its top stars. Jameis Winston is being shut down for “a few weeks” due to a shoulder injury. Mike Evans will also be absent due to a suspension for his hit on Marshon Lattimore. Heading into this season, a home matchup with the Jets looked like one of the easiest games on the schedule. But now, Tampa Bay is playing terrible ball while New York is playing competitively.
Which five players will most impact the outcome of Sunday’s game in Tampa?
