The New York Jets head to Raymond James Stadium to take on the Buccaneers. Here is all of the information you need to follow the game in all formats.
Dirk Koetter and the Buccaneers aren’t exactly where they expected to be as they pay host to Todd Bowles and the rest of the New York Jets. The Bucs were supposed to be playoff contenders but sit at 2-6, coming off of a 30-10 loss to the Saints. The Jets are 4-5 after beating up on the Bills last week on Thursday Night Football. The score as 34-21 but it didn’t seem that close. Can you believe the Jets are in this game seeking .500 heading into their bye week?
This one has turned into a revenge game, with Josh McCown starting against Ryan Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick would like nothing better than to show the Jets what they are missing by letting him go. McCown would be thrilled to show the Bucs what he has become. The Jets are going to have their shots in this one. The Bucs defense is underperforming the way the entire team is. They are ranked 30th in the league in pass defense. This could be a big one for McCown.
Matt Forte will be out for the game on Sunday. The running game will be a two-headed monster with Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire. These two will have the opportunity to attack this defense as well, ranked 22nd in the league against the run. 116.6 yards per game is a big chunk of real estate that should be available to the Jets offense.
