Rams vs. Buccaneers On TV: FOX
Both the Rams and the Bucs watched their seasons come to an end last week when they were blown out by the Vikings and the Saints respectively. Tampa Bay is almost certainly at least the slightly better of these two teams though, especially for this matchup. St. Louis has a tough time getting the ball up the field, and that is what has to be done to beat the Bucs and their 32nd ranked pass defense. QB Josh Freeman is coming off of the worst game of his career in which he tossed four picks and didn’t get a single point on the board, and he and WR Vincent Jackson should be in for great days against a sometimes suspect St. Louis defense. The Bucs have won six of the last eight in this series from an SU perspective and are 6-1-1 ATS in those games as well. Tampa Bay deserves to see one more win for the home team in what has been a great season, and that’s exactly what the Buccaneers are going to deliver on Sunday.
