The Buccaneers are home for the second straight game this week and host the division rival Carolina Panthers. After an impressive victory last week against the lowly San Francisco 49ers, Week 13’s matchup against the kittens will be a much tougher task.
One of the big stories this week is the matchup between Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans against Carolina’s cornerback James Bradberry. Evans was only able to record one catch for 16 yards on 10 target when Bradberry covered earlier this season. Evans vowed to bounce back in much bigger fashion this week and may have the opportunity to do so as Bradberry has struggled horribly in coverage recently. Tampa Bay’s top wideout most certainly wants to make sure Bradberry’s string of bad games continues.
