Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Denver Broncos Prediction

This match should be a cakewalk for the Buccaneers. The Broncos are without their first choice quarterback (Drew Lock), first choice wide receiver (Courtland Sutton), lockdown cornerback (AJ Bouye) & defensive wrecker-in-chief (Von Miller). all are out of consideration for this contest due to injury.

The Buccaneers on the other hand welcome back 2019 Pro Bowl & Second Team All-Pro wide reciever Chris Godwin back into the squad after he missed the week 2 game due to concussion.

Broncos QB Jeff Driskel will have to be at his accurate best since he might not get a lot of run support against a defense which stopped 2 Pro Bowl RB's in Christian McCaffrey & Alvin Kamara to under 60 rushing yards in their previous games.

Prediction: Tampa Bay Buccaneers to get the better of a depleted Denver Broncos side.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 33 - 16 Denver Broncos
