Tampa Bay took a serious blow to their playoff chances as they dropped a 24-17 home decision to the New Orleans Saints last week as a -6 point favorite. The Buccaneers went up against one of the worst defenses in the NFL and could only gain 291 yards and come away with just seven second half points. The Buccaneers defense allowed 312 yards passing and two touchdown throws to Drew Brees and they allowed veteran running back Tim Hightower to do damage on the ground. Tampa Bay is chasing 8-5 Seattle and Minnesota for both wildcard spots but down two games with three remaining puts the Buccaneers in a longshot position. The Buccaneers have shown improvement on the field in 2015 from their 2014 results. They run the ball effectively by averaging 141 yards on the ground good for fourth best in the NFL. The team is 11th in total defense by giving up 341 yards per game to their opponents. Running back Doug Martin was off to a very slow start to his season but he is on track for a career high as he has rushed for 1214 yards with five touchdowns and 5.1 yards per carry average. Rookie quarterback Jameis Winston has hit on 58% of his throws for 3059 yards with 18 touchdowns and 11 picks and has shown signs of a capable quarterback in this league.

The St Louis Rams will once again fail to finish with a winning record as they enter with a mark of 5-8. The offense has struggled as the team is 31st and second to last in the NFL in scoring and yardage as they push across just 16 points and 297 yards per game.
