We are near the midway point of the NFL season and this matchup features the Buccaneers traveling to New Era Field to face the Bills.
The Buccaneers come in after a tough loss to Arizona, while the Bills had a bye.
The last time the Buccaneers and the Bills matched up was in 2013 when the Buccaneers came out ahead 27-6.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Jameis Winston has had an up and down season, and he was injured early in the loss to the Cardinals.
Backup veteran QB Ryan Fitzpatrick came and delivered a vintage Fitzpatrick performance. He went 22-32 for 290 yards with 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions.
While he had flashes of good moments against Arizona’s talented secondary Fitzpatrick shouldn’t be trusted to put up those types of numbers two weeks in a row. Look for him to have another 2 turnovers and throw for less that 250 yards.
Doug Martin couldn’t get much going on the ground against the Cardinals front seven, as he ran the ball 14 times for just 53 yards and a score. If you take out the 27 yard run, he averaged just 2 yards per carry on the day.
If Martin puts up similar numbers then it will be hard for Tampa Bay to get the win.
Mike Evans didn’t make a lot of plays against Patrick Peterson, but when he did he showed up with 3 long catches for 95 yards and a score. Evans will have another good game against a suspect Bills secondary and should score in this game as well.
The Bucs front seven was beaten up by new Cardinals running back Adrian Peterson. He ran the ball 26 times for 134 yards and 2 touchdowns. Facing another great running back in LeSean McCoy, it may end up being another long night for the Tampa defense.
The Bills are coming off of a bye and will look to pick up their 4th win of the season.
In the last game against the Bengals the offense struggled to move the ball down field in the passing game.
Tyrod Taylor is normally a good dual threat option, but the speed of the Cincy defense kept him from making plays with his legs. He finished the game 20-37 for 166 yards with 1 touchdown and 1 interception.
Taylor should bounce back against the Bucs, and I expect him to finish the day with 350 total yards and 3 touchdowns.
LeSean McCoy faces a great matchup as the Bucs defense was gashed by Adrian Peterson last week. He is a threat running the ball and catching passes out of the backfield and I expect him to have 150 yards and 2 total touchdowns.
The Bills defense gave up a lot of passing yards to Andy Dalton, but did keep him in check with just 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions on the night. The secondary will have to keep tabs on Mike Evans as AJ Green carved them up for 7 catches and 189 yards with a score.
