The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are heading on the road and visiting Washington D.C. -- or Landover, Maryland to be precise. The game will be played at FedEx Field, with FOX having the broadcast rights as per usual for the Bucs, who are a 3.5-point underdog this week.
Kirk Cousins will get the start for Washington once again, despite throwing eight interceptions -- one more than his opposite number, rookie Jameis Winston. Cousins has been horrible this year, but their alternatives are Robert Griffin III, who they seem to have completely given up on, and Colt McCoy -- not exactly great options, there. Jay Gruden will have to rely on the running game, but that hasn't been what it was in previous years with a plodding Alfred Morris struggling to get anything going.
Both Tampa Bay and Washington have things to play for. At 2-4, Washington really isn't out of the wild card race -- and not even out of the division race, given that the Eagles lead the NFC East at 3-3. The Bucs will struggle to keep up with the 5-0 and 5-1 Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons, but the wild card spot isn't out of question given their 2-3 record. A win on the road would really help their prospects this season.
