Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Seattle Seahawks
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Preview
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Chris Godwin and Mike Evans rank second and fourth in the NFL in receiving yards per game with 100.7 and 94.6, respectively. They are also among the players tied for the league lead in touchdown catches with six. Turnover-plagued quarterback Jameis Winston should have another target available Sunday in tight end O.J. Howard. Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who sustained a neck injury in an offseason auto accident, made his season debut last weekend and got a sack on his first snap. He could give Tampa Bay an impressive sack duo, as linebacker Shaq Barrett is tied for the league lead with 10.
Seattle Seahawks Preview
Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner, a five-time Pro Bowl selection, made six tackles in last weekend’s 27-20 victory at Atlanta and has 989 in his career, breaking Eugene Robinson’s franchise record. Rookie safety Marquise Blair, making his second start, had a team-high 11 tackles and forced a fumble at the goal line. Heâ€™ll continue to start with Tedric Thompson placed on injured reserve. Russell Wilson might have found a new favorite target in the red zone, as rookie receiver DK Metcalf had touchdown catches of 4 and 2 yards against the Falcons. Seattleâ€™s offense could have issues, after starting center Justin Britt sustained a torn ACL in Atlanta and will miss the rest of the season.
