Week 6 poses a huge opportunity for Tampa Bay. A win will earn them a 1st place tie with the Saints, and will send a message to the league that the team is here to stay. The Bucs will need a big performance out of backup RB Earnest Graham, as he will get the bulk of the carries. If he can hold the ball, eat up clock, and score enough to keep the Bucs close, Freeman will win the game in the end. I am beginning to become a big time believer in Freeman’s “it ” factor. He has what it takes to win tight, hard fought games by pulling them out late.
On the other side of things Tampa merely has to slow the Saints juggernaut offense to give their own a chance. Easier said then done. If Tampa’s D can hold Brees to normal, un-video game like numbers, they will have a great shot. Watch for a possible big play on special teams, and a big win for the Bucs 24-21 over the Saints.
