Week 17 vs. New Orleans Saints Game Prediction – by Hagen


It is finally here, Bucs fans, the final game of this terrible season. Tampa Bay (4-11) hosts the New Orleans Saints (11-4) this Sunday afternoon. The Saints are already qualified for the playoffs and might not take this game too seriously, either, maybe even rest a few starters to keep them fresh for the important part of their season. Nonetheless, keeping their ground game in check will be key to winning this game. Mark Ingram has already surpassed 1000 yards this year and has 12 Touchdowns on the ground. Rookie Running Back sensation Alvin Kamara is averaging a whopping 6.2 yards on the ground. Add one of the best Quarterbacks in the game and you receive an offense that will win the NFC this year.

As far as Tampa is concerned, Jameis Winston will play with a chip on his shoulder and try to add another solid performance. It would be nice to see him create more chemistry with Mike Evans and his other Wide Receivers. Bobo Wilson will certainly receive some playing time. Jameis will score three times and Evans will go over 1000 yards receiving on the season.

The Bucs will come to play on Sunday and get an upset W, final score: 24 – 21.

Enjoy the last NFL game for the next 8 months… Go Bucs!
