Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-4) at Oakland Raiders (3-4)
After unimpressive wins over the Jaguars and Chiefs, the Raiders now sit at 3-4 and are somehow in the AFC playoff mix. However, they still aren’t very good. They have a point differential of -42. They got blown out in Oakland and in Miami and they weren’t impressive in either of their last 2 wins against crappy teams. They beat the Steelers in Oakland, but the Titans beat them in Tennessee. They also lost at home to San Diego and while they played the Falcons tough in Atlanta, so did the Panthers.
The Buccaneers, meanwhile, are at 3-4 as well, but they come from a tougher conference (the NFC is 20-12 against the AFC) and they’ve had more impressive wins. They also have a +31 points differential and they have yet to lose by more than a touchdown all year. Josh Freeman is 82 of 143 (57.3%) for 1309 yards (9.2 YPA), 10 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions in his last 4 games.
He’s a natural deep ball thrower who was afraid to throw deep l...

He ended up sealing that game up with a field goal in overtime. Janikowski [...]

How about an honest assessment of his on...

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have announced that they have trade CB Aqib Talib to the Patriots.
We’re still waiting to hear what the Buccaneers received in terms of compensation for Talib.
There’s no question that the Patriots could use some additional help at cornerback, as their secondary has been a real weak spot this season. Talib has had a number of off-the-field issues during...
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By JOSH DUBOW AP Sports Writer Carson Palmer and the Oakland Raiders have done a fairly good job moving the ball down the field so far this season.
Getting the ball into the end zone has been a different case.
The Raiders (3-4) have been one of the NFL's least efficient teams when it comes to red zone offense, scoring touchdowns on only about...
Last January, Chip Kelly walked away from an NFL position with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers citing “unfinished business” as his reason for doing so. Despite rumors to the contrary, I did and will continue to take the Coach at his word regarding his motivation for staying put, and due to such am left with but one thought regarding Saturday night’s game at the L.A. Coliseum: It’s...
New England Patriots trade for Buccaneers’ Aqib Talib
The good old Pats are at it again, zigging when everyone thought they’d zag by actually making a trade at the deadline for cornerback Aqub Talib. Talib is currently suspended for Adderall but is eligible to return next week.
There’s no question he could be useful in the Patriots secondary, especially if they’d like to...

Tampa Bay was already without Pro Bowl right guard Davin Joseph after they lost him for the year during preseason. The Bucs offensive line has played well as a unit to this point of the season. They have...
