The Tampa Bay Buccaneers travel to the big apple (actually New Jersey) to take on the New York Jets. Here’s how the game will go for the Buccaneers.
With the Bucs clinching their first NFC South title since 2007, on the surface there may seem like there’s nothing to play for. However, seeding scenarios are still very much in play, as is the slight possibility for the Bucs to swoop in and snag the first round bye in the playoffs and home field advantage.
Granted, they need a lot of help while also taking care of their own business. Fortunately, they have the Jets this week. Here is your official spoiler alert.
It’s no secret that the Buccaneers are still very much banged up. Fortunately, they still have Tom Brady at quarterback, who is delighted to have his buddy Antonio Brown in the lineup once again, along with the returning Mike Evans.
The story here though is about the young guns. Running back Ke’Shawn Vaughn and wide receiver Cyril Grayson will continue their breakouts in their young careers, performing amicably once again. They may not set the world on fire, but they also won’t have to given the talent around them and because Jets.
We love talking about Late Season Lenny, but he’s injured and there’s a whole other beast entirely. Late Season Brady is locked in, and this game will be over long before the final gun sounds. Yes, it’s true the NFL haven’t signaled the end of quarters and games with starter pistols since 1994, but you get the idea.
The Buccaneers will win this game rather handily and get out of New Jersey with a 33-17 victory, and an improved record of 12-4 with one game to play. From there, it’d scoreboard watching time. Do with this information what you will.
