In Week 11, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-6) host the New Orleans Saints (7-2). A lot of people have their thoughts on what might go down in Raymond James Stadium, including the guys from CanalStreetChronicles.com.
According to Chris, Chad, Butler and Xavier the Saints are going to score at least four touchdowns while Drew Brees throws for three of them.
In addition to the 28 points laid down by New Orleans, the defense - without Marshon Lattimore - is also going to hold Mike Evans without a catch. Not without a touchdown, without a catch, for the second time this year.
While the Bucs’ star receiver goes catch-less on the year against the Saints defense, their own star will do more big things since Vernon Hargreaves III is no longer in town, as Michael Thomas is predicted to haul in 21-catches or more.
One writer for the blog site does see some positives coming out of the Buccaneers, as Chris Dunnells predicts quarterback Jameis Winston will throw for 350-yards on the day. But he follows it up with a prediction that the Saints will pick-off Tampa Bay’s quarterback twice while recovering two fumbles as well, totaling four takeaways on the road this weekend.
Finally, against the NFL’s best rush defense (1st in rushing yards per game and 3rd in yards per carry), one writer predicts Latavius Murray - not Alvin Kamara - will have over 100-yards of offense and one of the team’s four touchdowns. Considering Murray has 25 receptions this year, it may not all come on the ground though.
For those in need of a fantasy football tight end this weekend, Canal Street Chronicles recommends you pick up Saints tight end Jared Cook, who they predict will have two touchdown catches.
Bucs Nation writers James Yarcho and David Harrison made their own bold predictions for this weekend’s game, along with Buccaneers.com’s Carmen Vitali. They’re not quite as bold as these.
What do you think of how Saints writers see this going? And what are your own predictions for Week 11 as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers face the New Orleans Saints?
