With a trip to New Orleans this week, another very important game is ahead of us. Our second divisional game and maybe the last chance to turn our season around. New Orleans has been on a roll, winning their last five games impressively. With Drew Brees under center, it is very important for the Buccaneers defense to finally create a pass rush and get into his head, otherwise he will pick us apart. The Saints’ defense is no longer the joke, it used to be for so many years. Especially with their Rookie corner back, Marshon Lattimore, playing so well. Consequently, they are currently atop of the NFC South.
According to multiple reports, Jameis Winston re-injured his shoulder, during week 7, and was almost pulled out by Koetter in the fourth quarter against the Panthers. We need him to start on Sunday and have a very good game for us to have any kind of chance of winning. Finally gaining 100+ Yards on the ground would be great for the Bucs and allow for some pressure it be lifted off of Winston. Defensively, we have been getting better, hopefully this trend will continue.
In this game, the Bucs will finally get it together and take the very important victory on the road in a high scoring showdown, final score: 34-31! This will be the beginning of our turnaround.
