After a sloppy win on Sunday against the Jets, the Buccaneers (3-6) hit the road this week to take on the Dolphins (4-5). Here, we look at five game-changing players for Sunday’s matchup.
The Buccaneers meet up with the Dolphins this Sunday, over two months after the original matchup was supposed to take place. The two teams were supposed to open the season on Sept. 10, but Hurricane Irma had other plans. Both teams lost their bye weeks and the game was rescheduled for Nov. 19. There’s now a different feel to this game, as the Bucs and Dolphins are looking like two of the most average teams in the NFL.
When this game was set for week one, Bucs fans were pumped to get the season going. Their team was a true contender for the first time in a while. Now, Tampa Bay is 3-6 and destined for a losing season. The Dolphins’ season isn’t looking much better, which leaves the Jaguars as the best team in Florida. Regardless of that, Sunday’s game still carries state bragging rights.
Both teams have losing records, but there is plenty of talent between both rosters. Which five players will most likely impact the outcome of Sunday’s game?
