As of October 25, 2013, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have fallen to 0-7 and find themselves one step closer to the Teddy Bridgewater sweepstakes. And with their loss to the Carolina Panthers Thursday night, it's hard not to see the writing on the wall for Mike Schiano.
With that, we take a look at the games remaining as we head into the thick of week eight:
Buffalo Bills @ New Orleans Saints
The Saints don’t lose at home and they're coming off a week to think about a game they should have one. It also doesn't help that the Bills secondary will likely lend Brees a helping hand.
Cleveland Browns @ Kansas City Chiefs
We're still not sure you’re buying into their perfect record at this point, but the Browns aren’t beating them at home. Even so, it’ll be interesting to see how this Chiefs offense fairs after a physical match up against Houston last week.
Dallas Cowboys @ Detroit Lions
It’s Dez Bryant vs. Calvin Johnson. And while Bryant can say what he wants, any doubts people had about whether or not Megatron is in a league of his own will be settled after this one. Spoiler alert: He is.
San Fransisco 49ers @ Jacksonville Jaguars
We really want to be the ones to call for the upset of the season here, but today is not that day. The Niners will get a lead early and sit on the ball forever. Sound familiar?
Miami Dolphins @ New England Patriots
The Dolphins are running clear off the tracks and we all know that loss to the Jets isn’t sitting well with Brady and company. They should step up at home.
New York Giants @ Philadelphia Eagles
The Giants have lost eight straight on the road and the Eagles have lost nine straight at home. Somethings got to give here, and we're taking the return of Michael Vick to tip the scale.
New York Jets @ Cincinnati Bengals
We really don’t know who we trust less, Andy Dalton or Geno Smith. But Dalton’s been on a hot streak lately and the Bengals defense is for real, so we like the home team here.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Oakland Raiders
Sack fest. This one could easily go either way.
Washington Redskins @ Denver Broncos
Manning should be as focused as ever after coming off a loss in Indy, and the Redskins are still struggling against the pass. This game has fantasy points galore written all over it. We fully expect it to be the highest scoring game of the week.
Atlanta Falcons @ Arizona Cardinals
This is coming for the Atlanta Falcons examiner, so what do you expect. Matt Ryan did throw five picks against them last year, essentially ruining what had been an MVP caliber season for him up until that point, but this one will mostly come down to how effective Steven Jackson can be in his return.
Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings
The Packers haven’t forgotten what happened last year. And we fully expect Rodgers to remind Greg Jennings why he should have stayed in Green Bay. Be sure to keep Jermichael Finley and his family in your prayers.
Seattle Seahawks @ St. Louis Rams
Someone really needs to work on the games scheduled for Monday Night Football.
