Jameis Winston is becoming a leader of this rising Bucs team. Coaches, fans, and his teammates believe in him, in his leadership and skill. It’s rarely that these things happen when you have a sophomore Quarterback. But when he is developing as Winston is, you know you have a gem in your possession.
Week 1 was a nightmare for Arizona Cardinals as they were embarrassed by the first-time starter Jimmy Garoppolo and Gronk-less Patriots. They need to dust themselves off and prove that they are still a legit Super Bowl contenders by beating rising Bucs. D
David Johnson will be featured a lot in this match. He will get a lot of carries, but he will also be active as a pass-catching RB. Palmer had a subpar game, and that’s just not acceptable if this team wants to get to the Super Bowl. He for sure needs to play better than he did in Week 1.
Bucs are decent all around team that just looks poised to make a leap forward in near future. That leap can be made on Sunday in Phoenix as they could very well end up victorious against Arizona. They have some big-time playmakers on offense, with Winston being the main one. Very dangerous as a dual-threat QB, and Cardinals will find that out on Sunday.
It’s just hard to pick Buccaneers in this game. All the tools are there to beat the Cardinals on their own turf. They could very well upset them. But, given that Cards lost to the Pats and just can’t afford another slip-up, we are going to go with ‘Zona to win this game on a late TD run by David Johnson.
Cardinals 27:24. But we are far from convinced. Tampa can do it. And don’t be surprised if they do end up on the winning side.
