Baltimore Ravens (4-3) @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-4)
Russell Gage (hamstring) and Cameron Brate (neck) are out for the Bucs and Julio Jones (knee) is expected to play.
Few people predicted these teams to have a combined 7-7 record when they’d meet in Week 8.
The Bucs (3-4) have dropped 4 of 5, including being blown out 21-3 by the lowly Panthers in Week 7. Tampa Bay continues to weather the injury storm, especially on the o-line and in the WR room.
With Russell Gage (hamstring) out and Julio Jones (knee) limited, Mike Evans and Chris Godwin are bound to be peppered with targets against a vulnerable Ravens secondary. Baltimore’s strength running the football will be a key matchup against Tampa Bay’s suddenly leaky run defense, that just surrendered 173 rushing yards in Carolina.
Both the Ravens and Bucs have stumbled out of the gate, and this matchup is essentially a must-win if either team seeks to be a legitimate contender. Both QBs should be dialed in and playing with a sense of urgency under the bright lights.
TB12 has lost 3-straight games just once in his entire career, dating all the way back to 2002. Let me rephrase. Brady hasn’t lost 3-straight games in 2 decades.
We’re guaranteed to have a pissed off Tom Brady on our hands Thursday night, which will end up being a spooky October sight for Ravens fans. Back the goat at home.
