It will be a potential NFC Championship game preview in Week 3 as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers travel to Los Angeles to take on the Rams.
Many experts predicted this could be the first loss for the Bucs this campaign when the schedules came out, but the Rams have been dealing with significant injuries.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tom Brady and company put up 48 points and improved to 2-0 after a Week 2 victory over the Falcons. It might not have been the most dramatic victory Brady has pulled out over the Falcons in his career, but it was convincing. He went 24 for 36 for 276 yards and 5 touchdowns. That’s coming off his 32 of 50 for 379 yards and 4 touchdowns in Week 1. Brady is 44 years old, by the way.
Also, what can you say about Rob Gronkowski? It sometimes seems as though he’s not even paying attention but he’s already caught 4 touchdown passes this year. Chris Goodwin is Brady’s favorite target so far this year, targeting him 18 times with 13 receptions for 167 yards.
The Bucs look to be seeking some help at the cornerback position. It is being reported that they have reached out to Richard Sherman about coming in. They are currently without Sean Murphy-Bunting who dislocated his right elbow in Week 1. He’ll need to miss at least 3 games on the IR but it doesn’t look as though he’ll require surgery. Carlton Davis also played with a mild hamstring strain in Week 2 against Atlanta. The Bucs will also be without linebacker Kevin Minter for this one as he’s been placed on the COVID-19 list.
Los Angeles Rams
So far so good for Matthew Stafford in Los Angeles. The Rams beat the Bears 34-14 in their Week 1 home opener and then followed that up with a 27-24 victory in Indianapolis in Week 2. The Rams are once again experiencing injury problems at the running back position. Darrell Henderson Jr. is said to be dealing with rib cartilage issues suffered in Week 2.
The Rams will be looking for Sony Michel to play a larger role, even if Henderson does suit up for Week 3. He was brought in to help provide depth in case of injuries, and that’s exactly what LA has early in the season.
Despite suffering a broken hand against the Colts, Justin Lawler could still be in the lineup on Sunday against Tampa Bay. He had surgery on Monday and is expected to play next week with his hand in a cast.

4* Free Week 3 NFL Betting Prediction: Bucs -1
NFL Betting Prediction: This one really comes down to how much stock you put into home-field advantage in 2021. We haven’t seen it play much of a role this season which leads me to believe there isn’t much standing away from a Tampa victory here.
Then again, Stafford may have found another level after his Week 2 late-game heroics against the Colts. He might be up for the challenge of facing the defending champs, but something tells me the Bucs are just too good right now to bet against when the lines are this close.
