NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

In our final look at the weekend’s matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Miami Dolphins, James Yarcho and I take a look at key injuries, prop bets, and projections.

On Thursday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers placed cornerback Carlton Davis III on injured reserve ahead of their Week 5 matchup with the Miami Dolphins. On today’s episode of the Locked On Bucs Podcast, we dive into that move and the rest of Thursday’s injure report for Tampa Bay and Miami.

Then, Tom Brady is coming out with a new media project soon. Get the details and thoughts on the GOAT’s newest venture, today.

After that, we go down the list of their favorite prop bets from and choose sides. Total scores, touchdowns, and more are on the table for our hosts to pick from.

Finally, we discuss why Leonard Fournette and Mike Edwards are slated to be the key players in a Buccaneers win, make some bold predictions, and give our final thoughts on who will win this Week 5 contest, and the score they’ll reach to do so.

Along the way, members of Bucs Nation call in and share their thoughts and questions. One wants to know about free-agent cornerback options if Jason Licht and the Buccaneers look to add to Richard Sherman with more additions after injuries to Davis, Jamel Dean, Sean Murphy-Bunting, and safety, Antoine Winfield Jr.

We also hear from another Bucs fan about the future of tight end O.J. Howard. With Rob Gronkowski’s injury and the presence of Cam Brate, does it make sense to keep Howard or trade him once Gronk is back in playing shape?

Our final look at this weekend’s game, and a lot of fun conversations to be had, on the Locked On Bucs Podcast!
