The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are facing a crossroads of their season - win and stay alive, lose and we’re talking draft, free agency, and coaching searches by Thanksgiving.
Just like the old days, huh?
Standing in their way of salvaging their season are the Tennessee Titans - a team that has a 10-2 record against the Bucs over the two teams’ history - and the Bucs are still reeling from their last second 39-37 loss to the Houston Texans.
One of the main factors in that loss was Carlton Davis, who has arguably his worst game as a Buc. Now, he’s back to dealing with that toe injury that sidelined him for two games earlier in the year and he will not suit up for the Bucs
The Bucs, however, will have cornerback Jamel Dean who cleared concussion protocol. Aaron Stinnie will once again step in for the injured Matt Feiler and the Bucs lose more cornerback depth with the loss of Josh Hayes.
AS a result of the lack of depth, the Buccaneers elevated cornerback Keenan Isaac from the practice squad to the active roster.
For the Titans, they are without wide receiver Treylon Burks, safety Mike Brown, offensive linemen Daniel Brunskill and Nicholas Petit-Frere, and former Buccaneer Sean Murphy-Bunting.
