Sorry for the late post, perhaps this will help some of you late undecideds. Funny how teams in all sports can go on the road for a couple of games, play well, then come home and lay an egg. While I'm not saying TB is going to come home and lay an egg, Greg Schiano's young Bucs could definitely come out flat today in a once again sparsely populated Raymond James stadium.
The differences I expect will be SD's "D" vs the TB offense. Martin won't run for 200 yards today. Freeman will have to make some more plays and while he can make big plays, he can make some boneheaded plays too. Remember the already banged up TB "O" line lost Carl Nicks 2 game ago and against a good run defense that will catch up to the Bucs.
Rivers will throw today against the worst pass "D" in the league, and the Bucs don't sack the QB (13 for the year). Right up the immobile Rivers' skinny behind. Fantasy players, Rivers will put up some no.'s today.
This weather will have SD thinking they are at home-
SD +3, -105
SD M/L +145
