Buccaneers opponents part two
Atlanta Falcons, Home-Win 45-17
A drubbing, an absolute drubbing. The Falcons come to Raymond James and get sent back to Atlanta relatively smoothly. Not much to say here. After a loss to start the season, it’s time for us to get the ball rolling, and with Mariota starting in Atlanta and the lack of talent on their team, we easily land this win.
Pittsburgh Steelers, Away- Win 20-7
A pretty low-scoring affair as Pittsburgh has a very solid defense and an absolutely putrid offense. Mitch Trubisly will throw a few picks our way, and while Najee Harris will probably get them a score, he won’t be able to muster up much more than that as our run defense should be very stout again this year.
Carolina Panthers, Away-Win 42-24
At this point in the season, Sam Darnold will likely already be on the hot seat…. This game will probably push him off that seat altogether. While the Panthers will likely give Christian Mccaffrey a heavy workload, I see Darnold throwing three picks and the Bucs getting their 6th consecutive win.
Baltimore Ravens, Home- Loss 35-28
Baltimore’s three-headed rushing attack is a force to deal with, and while the strength of our defense is stopping the run, we will have to put a lot of extra defenders in the box to do it with this team, and that leaves our corners on islands, which doesn’t usually bode well for our team.
