Week 1 @ Miami Dolphins Game Prediction by Hagen


Well, Bucs fans, the long wait and suffering without NFL football is almost over. Next week, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers finally start off the 2017 regular season with an away game in Miami. The Dolphins have a solid team overall. Their starting Quarterback, Ryan Tannehill, is out for the season, which caused the organization to acquire Jay Cutler, who worked together with Miami’s Head Coach Adam Gase in Chicago. Oft-criticized Cutler will certainly play with a chip on his shoulder and try to prove all his critics wrong. He won’t make it easy on our Defense and he worries me more than Tannehill would. Miami’s young Running Back Jay Ajayi had a breakout season last year, keeping him in check will be a key to our defensive success.

As far as their Defense is concerned, Winston won’t have much time to get rid of the ball in this game, as Miami has one of the better Defensive Lines in the league. Ndamukong Suh and Cameron Wake are among the best at their respective position. However, even though Winston did not record a Touchdown pass, our first team offense looked sharp these first few preseason drives. Our Quarterback is hungry for some Ws! Winston and the Buccaneers should find a way to move the ball and put points on the board.

Conculusively, I am predicting our first win in a very highly contested game. Bucs win it by a field goal, 24-21. Enjoy the game… and go Bucs!
