Tom Brady will make his first start at his new home stadium in Tampa. They will hold host to their NFC South division rival the Carolina Panthers in Week 2 at 1:00 p.m.
Matt Rhule took the loss in his first career game as an NFL head coach and will try to bounce back here against the Bucs. The Panthers were right in the game on Sunday but fell just short as the Raiders had a great fourth-quarter drive by Derek Carr to seal the victory 34-30.
Teddy Bridgewater made his first start at QB for Carolina completing 22 of 34 passes for 270 yards to go with his one touchdown. He even had a stellar 75-yard touchdown pass to Robby Anderson that gave them a lead for a brief moment in the fourth. He showed the league that he is more than a dip and dunk QB and can actually put up some points if need be.
Christian McCaffrey was dominant against the Raiders rushing defense in the game finding his way into the end zone twice and piling up 134 yards from scrimmage.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Bruce Arian’s squad looked very undisciplined in their first game as they kept committing penalty after penalty putting them in bad spots all over the field. The team just looked like it wasn’t in-sync with one another on both sides of the ball as it cost them over 100 yards in penalties.
Tom Brady didn’t appear to be himself on offense and it wasn’t because he was in a different uniform. Brady threw for 239 yards on 23 of 36 pass attempts to go with his two touchdowns and two interceptions.
Mike Evans was neutralized all game raking up only two yards on one catch in the game. Marshon Lattimore had his number all day and didn’t give him an inch at the line. Chris Godwin led the receiving corps in yards with 76 on the day and caught six of the seven passes that went his way.
Defensively, the Bucs surrendered 34 points which isn’t great, but the offense didn’t give them any favors as it seemed like they were backed up to their goal line every time they trotted onto the field. Lavonte David had 11 tackles on the team to lead them for the day and was looking good after a couple of down years in 2018 and 2019.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Buccaneers -7.5
The Buccaneers are poised the bounce-back hereafter some chemistry issues in game one. Tampa Bay was the number one team last year at stopping the run and I think they have the ability to bottle up McCaffrey and make Teddy have to target his receivers. It’s hard to beat Tom Brady in back to back games and even with a new team, I’m confident laying the points with the best QB of all time with some of the best receivers in the game. Give me the Bucs to put up some points in an easy victory.
