Jamies Winston will look to rebound from a tough Week 2, which succeeded a strong showing in Week 1.
Kickoff is set for 1:05PM ET with Winston facing off against a LA Rams team that pulled out a huge upset against Seattle, in the Rams’ first home game in LA since returning to the Coliseum.
Los Angeles Rams
Case Keenum is a well-traveled veteran back-up QB who is currently the starter and placeholder until #1 overall pick from this past draft, Jared Goff, is ready to take over starting duties.
Keenum is not a quality starting QB, owning a career QB rating of 77.0 and a 57.8 mark for this season thus far.
Not at 28-years old, it doesn’t appear that any emergence is coming from the veteran, although he was able to help lead the Rams to victory over Seattle.
Though coming off a big win against Seattle, there were exactly 0 touchdowns thrown in the game and there are question marks starting to surface in regards to Todd Gurley and whether LA can have enough of a passing game to force opposing defenses to not just stack the box and contain the star running back.
The Rams defense has looked very solid so far through two games, holding the Seattle offense to just a single field goal in Week-2.
Their defense will continue to be their calling card, at least so long as their offense can’t find Gurley some room to run.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Jameis Winston, the #1 overall pick in 2015, has turned in complete opposite games in his two starts this season so far.
Granted, the defense he faced in Week-2 on the road in Arizona is a vaunted one, especially in comparison to the Atlanta defense he faced in Week 1.
Winston threw for a 71.9% completion rate and a 4:1 TD:INT ratio against the Falcons, only to follow up with a complete reversal to 1:4 TD:INT and a 51.9% completion rate in Arizona this past week.
Mike Evans is Winston’s go-to receiver, especially for the long ball as his height and speed make him a threat every time the ball comes near him. Doug Martin suffered an injury last game and is questionable for week-2, but would pass off the running duties to Charles Sims if he cannot go.
The Tampa Bay defense was supposed to be a feared one entering this year, but has anything but so far.
The Bucs have allowed 64 total points through the first two weeks and will need to tidy things up on the D-side of the ball if they want to push for a playoff spot this year.
NFL Betting Trends:
- Mike Evans has average a TD in every 1.88 games he’s played in during his career
- Jameis Winston has a career QB rating of 82.6
- In his 2015 rookie season, Todd Gurley had 1,106 yards in 13 games, but currently has just 98 over 2 games this year
- Case Keenum has yet to throw a TD this season
- Tampa Bay will be playing their first game of the year at home, where they went 3-5 a year ago
4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Tampa Bay ML
After a huge victory at home against Seattle, the Rams won’t be able to match the passing game of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In week 1, the 49ers sliced up the Rams defense in a 28-0 shutout and despite the Doug Martin injury, I think the Bucs have too many weapons to shut down.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Los Angeles 14 – Tampa Bay 21
The Rams defense was great at home last game but allowed 28 points to a so-so San Fran offense, and while the Bucs’ defense has been porous so far, they have some strong pieces there.
