Everything broke exactly the way the Bucs wanted them to last week with one lone exception. The Falcons choked away a game to the Browns and are still winless outside of the division. New Orleans' defense put on a show (in a bad way) and they got beat at home by the Ravens.
But something was missing...let me see what was it? Oh yeah, The Bucs lost. Again. Another opportunity goes by the wayside for the Bucs yet thanks to the horrible suckitude of the NFC South, it's not over yet.
Okay, realistically it is - but we have to do this anyway.
Who to root for this week:
- Buccaneers over Bengals (Obviously)
- Vikings at home over Panthers
- Steelers at home over Saints
- Cardinals on the road over Falcons
Tampa Bay needs to beat both of the division rivals remaining on their schedule and take two out of three from Cincinatti (at home), Detroit (on the road) and Green Bay (at home) to get to 6-10.
