27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3-6 (24)
It is safe to say the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have more defensive issues than offensive issues. Although the health of quarterback Jameis Winston remains in question.
Winston left Thursday night’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons with an injured knee. However he reportedly practiced on Monday, so there is that.
The Buccaneers can’t keep giving up a lot of points however and expect to win many games. They have given up at least 30 points in five of their eight games.
Upcoming this Sunday is a home date with the Bears. It is a chance for the Bucs to get back in the playoff talk, although many would suggest I get checked by a doctor saying such a thing.
It’s hard to figure the Bears out right now, so maybe this doesn’t end up being as close as some think. The Bucs took the Oakland Raiders to overtime though at home just two weeks ago. Anything can happen.
