The 2013 Prediction Results for Offense and Defense

Douglas Jones-USA TODAY Sports

In previous weeks we had a poll on predicting how much the offense would score on a per game average (PPG – Points per Game) as well as how much the defense would allow per game (PPGA – Points per Game Allowed). PPG Poll Link .  PPGA Poll link .  Here are the results:

In 2012, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense scored 24.3 PPG.  From our polls, it seems as though a majority of us think the Bucs will score 24.0 PPG or more.  On defense, the Bay let opposing offenses score 24.6 PPGA in 2012.  The polls are optimistic that our defense can bring that average down by a minimum of three points to a high of six points difference this coming season.

Before the season kicks off, I just wanted to share the results of these predictions so it can give us fans other things to keep in mind as the season progresses.  I may revisit these predictions and compare them after every four games, sort of like a quarterly report.
