The "Trap Game" For The 2013 Season

Hey Bucs Nation! While we wait for the season to being I've got a question for you guys: what will next year's trap game be? I feel every year the Bucs always beat a team they shouldn't have and / or lose against a team they shouldn't have. Each team will be judged by their record from the previous year compared to the Bucs record (7-9). To make things easier I took away division rivals so you can't pick the Saints, Falcons, or Panthers. For the purposes of this topic Miami and the teams we lost to last year but still ended with a worse record than the Bucs are in the losing team category. So who do you think it'll be?

Which Team With A Winning Record Will We Upset?

@NE (12-4)

SF (11-4-1)

@SEA (11-5)

@STL (7-8-1)

Which Team With A Losing Record Will We Be Upset By?

MIA (7-9)

@NYJ (6-10)

BUF (6-10)

ARI (5-11)

DET (4-12)

PHI (4-12)

For the losing record team, I feel like Arizona will be the team. Their defense is underrated with them finishing fifth in passing yards allowed (though they did suck against the run) and with the addition of Palmer, Fitzgerald has someone who knows how to throw the ball. Though Palmer is on the downward slope of his career, he still put up over 4000 yards with 22 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. I'm sure Revis will be all over Fitzgerald but I can see this being the one we let slip away.

For the winning record team, the easy answer is St Louis. It's hard to win in Seattle plus I don't like East Coast teams traveling to play on the West Coast. Though on paper, the pass defense is much improved I don't think we can stop Brady and Belichick in New England. San Francisco at home? We would need a lot of things to go our away with their dominant defense and one of last year's phenom in Colin Kaepernick.

I would add a poll but it would have to be two polls and I don't think this page allows that.
