OK, so we're all pumped for Sunday in Tampa. This marks the first step on our road to the playoffs. This game sets the tone for us. With that being said, it is football and it is the NFL. This is what I expect to see Sunday.

Offense:
We come out strong. We impose our will on the Bucs. A couple of hiccups with penalties in the first half, and these penalties may stall some promising drives. Cam makes good decisions, but does throw one errant pass that gets picked. After this, he shakes it off and has a pretty solid day.

Our RBs have a field day. We rotate them well and they all do their part. Cam also has a good day on the ground, picking up big yards at least once on a read-option.

Murphy shows why he is our best #3. He puts up some solid numbers and has a big play or two. Lafell and Smitty pick up where they left off last season, though Lafell may drop some passes here and there that he should probably have caught.

Defense:
Run defense, we look great. Pass defense....well, you know. We get some turnovers thanks to the secondary, but they also have a few breakdowns. Some halftime adjustments get it tightened up, but they're still suspect. Luckily, we have a big enough lead in the third where the Bucs have to throw more, which plays to our benefit.

ST:
Well, we look better than we've looked in a while. Adams doesn't do anything special, but he does get us a few yards on some returns. Kick coverage is still poo, and we all cuss incessantly at the TV for most of the game.

Overall:
We win by 17+. I have us winning 38-13.

It'll be closer than most here expect. The Bucs are better than last year and will come out swinging.

Our offense starts slowly, with only a FG in the 1st quarter, then scores 10 in the 2nd for a 13-10 halftime lead.

In the 3rd, we pick off Freeman and get some points out of it; 20-10 Panthers.

The Bucs return a kickoff/punt deep into our territory and score as a result. 20-17 Panthers.

Then the 4th quarter comes and our RB's start to pick up steam. Cam throws a long TD to seal the win. Bucs get a late field goal in garbage time, but can't recover the onside kick.

FINAL: 27-20 Panthers

The Panthers are better than last year and will not only come out swinging, but connecting.

I hate watching games In tampa...ugly stadium and I feel like the camera work is worse there for some reason. Should be a closer game than most of you think, could come down to who makes the first mistake
