The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are facing off with the Los Angeles Rams in primetime tonight, and the Bucs will need to show out in a big way.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the LA Rams are both difficult teams to understand. Both teams have won against good competition, and both have fallen short against weaker teams, so they aptly belong in wildcard spots in the playoffs.

With both teams generally performing at high levels so far this season, this is shaping up to be a phenomenal Monday night matchup, with the Buccaneers in position to prove that they belong in the limelight. Here are our predictions for the matchup:

Prediction #1

Ronald Jones has another 100-yard rushing performance

While Ronald Jones is still trying to develop some consistency in his game, last week’s performance against the Carolina Panthers should go a long way in ensuring that RoJo finishes the year on a strong foot.

Jones has seen up and down weeks with a confusing level of variance, but this is the perfect opportunity to show that he can keep this pace up, even against better competition.

Like the Buccaneers, the Rams have been great against the run so far this season, and this should be the perfect opportunity for RoJo to solidify his status as one of the top running backs in the NFL with a 100-yard performance tonight.
