Why the Buccaneers Can Cover

Tampa Bay is led by future Hall of Famer Tom Brady. Even without some of the primary weapons on offense, Brady still instills fear in opponents’ defenses.This season, he has completed his 36 of his 61 passes (59%), scored 402 yards and his two touchdowns. In his 17 games last season, Brady completed 485 of 719 passes (67.5%) for 5,316 yards and he scored 43 touchdowns.

Defensively, the Buccaneers remain formidable, holding opponents to just 6.5 points per game. Linebacker Devin White led the team with 11 tackles last week against the Saints, forcing a sack and the fifth fumble of his career. Look for a 4-game streak in Los Angeles. In his final game against the Packers, he had 10 tackles, 1 sack and 3 tackles in a loss.

Why the Packers Can Cover

Nevertheless, the Buccaneers are no lock to cover the Packers vs. Buccaneers spread. That’s because Green Bay is led by a future Hall of Famer at quarterback as well. Aaron Rodgers passed for 2 touchdowns against no interceptions and scored a 131.1 rating in Week 2, becoming the fifth QB in history to pass 450 or more touchdowns (451). I was. He became the second quarterback in history (Drew Brees) to achieve a 130-plus rating in his career over 40 games. He has had two or more of his TD passes in seven of his last eight games. Rodgers has 295-plus passing yards and his 105-plus rating in two of his last three games with the Buccaneers.

Rodgers’ biggest weapon so far this season is getting Aaron Jones back. He had his 170 scrimmage yards and his two touchdowns in Week 2. This includes his 1 rush and 1 receive. He has had 6 games since 2018 where he was 150+ yards from scrimmage and he has 2 TDs, tying for his third-most in the NFL. Jones has rushed his score in his third straight game against Tampa Bay, and his eighth straight road look for his game, where he was more than 50 yards from scrimmage.
