Tampa Bay Buccaneers will take on the Los Angeles Rams

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are set to take on the Los Angeles Rams in a pivotal matchup that will have playoff implications here in Week 11 of the season.

The Buccaneers (7-3) enter the game as the second-place team in the NFC South Division looking to gain a game back on the division-leading New Orleans Saints, who will play today against the Atlanta Falcons.

Tampa Bay has the advantage of watching the game Sunday and not playing until Monday night when they’ll face a Rams team- with a 6-3 overall record- that had a little bit of a scare with a positive test earlier this week, but all signs still point to the game being played as normally scheduled.

The matchup is set to kickoff at 8:20 p.m. E.T. on ESPN and there’s no doubt that this one will have major playoff implications as we head into the thick of the playoff push.

Final Score Prediction & Analysis for Buccaneers vs. Rams

The winner of this game puts themselves in prime position to lock up a wild-card spot later in the season with a win Monday night.

The loser isn’t out, but the winner is absolutely in the driver’s seat when it comes to the wild-card race and they’ll keep in line their step to compete for their respective division, as well.

The Rams are better than their 6-3 record would suggest, in my opinion, and they’ve got some talented and explosive options on offense and the defense isn’t too shabby either.

At the end of the day, I think we see a focused Bucs team come out and look to prove themselves on the national stage. That will end with an ever-so-close victory.
