The defending champs are showing no signs of missing Peyton Manning as they have raced out to a 3-0 start to the season. In Tampa, the Bucs have been sluggish.
The good thing is that the NFC South is pretty wide open so far.
Kick off is set for 4:05 PM ET with Jameis Winston looking to prove that having a top draft pick at QB is the key to big time winning.
So far there is no much evidence to support that theory as Trevor Siemian was a 7th rounder in the same 2015 draft.
The Broncos formula is simple. Play strong defense, don’t make mistakes, win.
They proved once again that they can do all of those thing in beating a pretty good Cincinnati team on Sunday. A game I thought they would lose.
The scary part is we finally saw more out of Siemian who was able to work the ball to Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas often.
He had to as the Bengals completely shut down the Broncos running game. It showed a lot that he can make up the difference with his arm if he has to.
The defense gave up some yards on the ground but they picked off Andy Dalton once and sacked him 4 times, disrupting the Bengals offensive flow.
Denver has a great chance to get to 4-0 this weekend. They have a few soft games afterwards too.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
After an opening win at Atlanta the Bucs have not looked good.
Their defense has been especially bad giving up 77 points over the last two games. Losing at home to LA on Sunday really stung. You have to win at home if you are going to climb the ladder in the NFL.
In terms of numbers Jameis Winston had a big day with over 400 yards passing. However, 59 attempts is a lot for a guy who is not always the most precise with the football.
He threw three TD passes but also one pick.
Second year receiver Adam Humphries had a big game with 9 catches for 100. He is close to eclipsing his numbers from a year ago in just a few games.
Injuries are not helping this team on defense but at the same time someone has to step up and make a play. This team can win giving up 24ppg but not over 30.
The NFC South is pretty messy right now.
It was expected that Carolina would run away with the division again but they are not looking to sharp at the moment.
If the Bucs can get a win they aren’t expected to, it could make a huge difference.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Tampa Bay +3
Taking the Broncos to win by a FG is the smart safe play. My gut is saying that the Bucs are due, especially after getting their ass handed to them the last couple of weeks. This week they push back.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Tampa Bay 27 – Denver 17
At some point Siemian has to have a game where his lack of Manningness hurts the Broncos. I am not seeing an epic fail, just a couple of mistakes that turn the tide.
