Ridiculous stat: The Buccaneers are (0-8) after having won by double digits at home. That streak needs to come to an end today.
Questionable for the Bucs: DE Gaines Adams (ribs), CB Aqib Talib (hamstring), and LB Derrick Brooks (hamstring); Out for the Bucs: WR Joey Galloway (ankle) and RG Davin Joseph (foot).
Doubtful for the Bears: S Craig Steltz; Out for the Bears: S Brandon McGowan and T Chris Williams, and WR/PR Devin Hester.
The Bucs stopped Rookie RB Michael Turner in his tracks last week (42 yards) after the Falcon gained over 200 yards the previous week. This week's test comes in the form of another Rookie, RB Matt Forte. He broke 100 yards in week 1 against the Colts and nearly repeated that feat against the run stingy Panthers defense. Buc Up Defense!!
