After a disappointing start to the 2017 campaign, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are faced with a must-win game in Buffalo this Sunday. Losing this time again and falling to 2-4 would be absolutely unacceptable for a squad that the fans, the coaching staff and the city of Tampa had such high hopes for before the season. The Bills’ current record is 3-2, they are not an easy opponent for the Bucs, especially since they are playing at home. The key to this game will be keeping Buffalo’s star Running Back LeSean McCoy in check. Buffalo will try to use their extremely dangerous rusher to beat us on the ground even more now, after we made Adrian Peterson look like superman last week. McCoy has not done too well so far this season, not having scored a Touchdown yet and averaging only 3.2 Yards per carry. A weak run defense, however, might just be what he needs to get going. Needless to say, getting Kwon Alexander back this week would help tremendously.
As far as Jameis Winston’s playing status is concerned, there is no news as of now. He is day-to-day. I believe he will start this Sunday and he will be back with a chip on his shoulder. Look for Winston to score 2 Touchdowns in the first quarter. The Bills Defense will be tough to beat though, as it allows less than 15 points per game, yet Winston will be highly motivated and deliver a great performance.
To put it in a nut shell, the Bucs are dealing with a must-win situation here in Week 7, with or without Winston. I personally believe the Buccaneers will get it together this time and leave Buffalo with a close win, final score: 27-24. Enjoy the game and… Go Bucs!
