Win-loss predictions for the Buccaneers 2019 season
Week 15 @ Detroit Lions
Another trap game could be on the horizon for the Buccaneers as they look to hit double digit wins for the first time in over a decade. As the Buccaneers travel to take on the Lions in a game they should win, this game has a hiccup written all over it as the Lions field a veteran quarterback and an experienced defense led by Trey Flowers.
The Lions are still trying to rebuild their team led by head coach Matt Patricia, and has almost made the playoffs within the last few years. This game could be seen as a loss with the distractions around the team with concerns for the playoffs and the Saints knocking on the door for the Division.
Lions Win 30-20 (9-5)
Week 16 vs Houston Texans
The playoffs are just about three weeks away teams are now clinching their divisions and several teams are fighting for the two wild card spots. This is a must win game for the Buccaneers at this point after a blunder against the Lions a week ago.
The Saints are in a neck and neck race with the Buccaneers at this point, and this matchup with the Houston Texans can be seen as a must-win for the pewter and red. This could be a matchup of defenses as J.J. Watt goes against a lacking Bucs’ offensive line.
Luckily the Texans’ offensive is also lacking, even with the addition of former Miami Dolphins’ star Laremy Tunsil. Expect both Winston and Deshaun Watson to be on the ground a lot, but the Buccaneers squeak out a close one against the Texans.
