The Bucs actually could have possibly pulled a victory out last week if not for several mental mistakes and coverage breakdowns. Their ability to correct these mistakes should be promising for this game.
They will be without defensive end Michael Bennett while the Titans should see the return of QB Matt Hasselbeck who was injured last week against the Atlanta Falcons.
The Titans will have homefield advantage on this and will desperately try to keep pace in their division as will the Bucs. However, I’m seeing something more rocky for the Titans than the mountains.
My pick for the winner: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Carolina Panthers vs. Indianapolis Colts: Viewers for this match up against the Panthers (2-8) and Colts (0-10) shouldn’t have any trouble sleeping after what will be a snooze fest of a game.
Neither team is playing for anything except for the Colts who don’t want to have an 0-16 record. The Panthers are tied with the Minnesota Vikings and St. Louis Rams for second worst record in the NFC.
