The Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the Los Angeles Rams in their week nine affair. Here’s how the game will go for the Buccaneers.
When they say that the NFL stands for “not for long” they really mean it. A season ago, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Los Angeles Rams were arguably the two best teams in the NFC. Their clash in the divisional round in Tampa Bay was an instant classic, one that saw the Buccaneers come up short in heartbreaking fashion.
Fast forward to 2022, and both squads look to be shells of themselves from what they were last year. That’s despite both teams having solid rosters top to bottom on paper, rosters that haven’t really changed much from 2021.
Games aren’t played on paper though, they’re played on the field, and this is your official spoiler alert on how this particular game will go on the field. You have been warned.
After playing (and falling) on Thursday Night Football, the Bucs come into this game well-rested, and should also be well-refreshed. The Rams meanwhile played last Sunday, and got ran off their own field by their division rival San Francisco 49ers. Somethings got to give, and it will.
No matter how slow Tom Brady starts off, the halfway point is around the time he and his team pickup steam. Now, there’s a lot of other factors here, the majority of which are off the field, so Brady and the Bucs won’t exactly roar out the gate.
That said, after the long break and the Rams trying to stay afloat, the Buccaneers will play a more complete game, but not one without headache.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will win this game by a score of 27-21, and start the process of finally turning the ship around. There is your spoiler. Do with this information what you will for your own future.
