(Photo by Patrick McDermott/Getty Images) The Green Bay Packers have gotten nothing but bad injury news for weeks, a trend that may have finally begun to turn Saturday. All Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari is expected to suit up for the first time this season on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It will be just the second time the offensive lineman has played in a regular season game since tearing his ACL in December of 2020, an injury that ultimately required multiple surgeries to address. Adam Schefter of ESPN on Saturday broke the news that Bakhtiari’s would give it a go in Tampa Bay.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Todd Bowles remains bitter about his team’s past losses to the New Orleans Saints, which he no longer considers an NFC South rival.  Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Todd Bowles remains bitter about his team’s past losses to the New Orleans Saints, which he no longer considers an NFC South rival. That’s because Tampa Bay hasn’t won a regular season game against the Saints since 2018. According to Bucs tackle Tristan Wirfs, “Coach [Todd] Bowles said today, ‘It’s not a rivalry unless there’s some give-and-take,'” (via Mike Florio, NBC Sports). The Bucs haven’t won a regular season game against the Saints since legendary quarterback Tom Brady has been on the roster. With Brady, they’re 0-4 with the Saints for the regular season, and they’ll face the Saints for the first time this season on Sunday. It’s crucial they put their best foot forward if they want to break their shameful losing streak. The Saints have been a highly dominant team over the past decade, kicking off the 2010s with their first and only Super Bowl championship. The Saints...

    The Miami Dolphins have three in-game opportunities to get ready for the 2022 season, which kicks off a month from now at home against the New England Patriots. Time is ticking, and Mike McDaniel’s to-do list remains long. A new offense is being installed by the Dolphins’ rookie head coach, and it’s accompanied by a new style of running game that’s still being introduced. A new defensive scheme is being tinkered with by Josh Boyer, and Miami’s searching for its next batch of playmakers and leaders not named Tyreek Hill. Where this team goes? Their preseason performance will likely provide a few hints. Here are 10 things to look for in Saturday’s preseason opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. How much does Tua Tagovailoa play, if at all? McDaniel has hinted that Tagovailoa, who owns a 13-8 record as the team’s starter the past two years, might not participate in Saturday’s exhibition. Considering how sharp he’s looked in training camp’s first three weeks, taking a cautious, protective approach is understandable. Tagovailoa’s solid practices have raised his confidence, and the confidence...
    We have reached the “I’m happy to get to hit guys in a different colored jersey” part of the NFL calendar. The Miami Dolphins have gone through two weeks of training camp where all they’ve seen and practiced against is themselves. This week, the Dolphins are in Tampa for joint practices with the Buccaneers on Wednesday and Thursday ahead of Saturday night’s preseason opener at Raymond James Stadium. Although some veterans may be nursing injuries or otherwise taking maintenance days, a number of interesting matchups should be seen. For one, Dolphins defenders, who mostly all return from last season, get another shot at quarterback Tom Brady and the Buccaneers offense that embarrassed them in last season’s 45-17 loss on Oct. 10. On the other side, it offers the Dolphins’ new-look offense behind coach Mike McDaniel a first glance against an opponent in Tampa’s aggressive defense. New Dolphins star receiver Tyreek Hill is excited to face an opponent for the first time in a Miami uniform after feasting against Dolphins cornerback Noah Igbinoghene for two weeks, but having Xavien Howard get...

    THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams will not have left tackle Andrew Whitworth or safety Taylor Rapp available when they play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in an NFC divisional playoff game Sunday. Whitworth hurt his ankle on the Rams’ first offensive play in a 34-11 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Monday. Rapp will miss his second straight game after sustaining a concussion in the season finale against the San Francisco 49ers. “Both those guys will be out. They’ll be out for the game,” coach Sean McVay said Friday. Whitworth started 15 games in the regular season for the Rams, becoming the first 40-year-old to play left tackle in NFL history. He played a total of 30 snaps against Arizona before being replaced by Joe Noteboom in the second half. Noteboom, in his fourth season out of TCU, made two starts this season. He played left tackle at Houston in Week 8 when Whitworth was sidelined because of a knee injury, and Noteboom played right tackle at Arizona in Week 14. Rapp, who had four interceptions and...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) —  The Eagles will face the defending Super Bowl champs, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in the first round of the NFL playoffs this weekend. It will be quarterback Jalen Hurts and head coach Nick Sirianni’s first playoff appearance — but veteran quarterback Tom Brady isn’t taking the Birds for granted. “We’re going to have to play our best game of the year. Our toughest opponent all year. You know, we’re playing a team that’s very talented. They didn’t make it to this point for no reason. We got to do everything we can to get the win. This is a football team that’s been playing really well. Been very healthy, good on offense. Good on defense. Good front. It’s going to be a very tough game,” Brady said. The Eagles finished the regular season with a 9-8 record. The Eagles-Buccaneers game is set for 1 p.m. Sunday in Tampa Bay.

    BOSTON (CBS) — Is there trouble in paradise for Foxboro’s former favorite duo? Probably not. But for perhaps the first time in history, Julian Edelman has displayed a lack of trust in Tom Brady. Edelman was asked on this week’s “Inside The NFL” on Paramount+ if the Buccaneers will repeat as Super Bowl champions. Edelman at first evaded the question, stating that the Bucs “definitely have a shot to repeat.” When pressed by host Amanda Guerra to answer the actual question, Edelman had to make the painful choice to bet against his bubs. “Nah, I don’t think they’re gonna repeat this year,” Edelman said. “I mean, I think the team is getting depleted right now.” Edelman pointed out that the loss of Chris Godwin for the year was a huge one. That prompted co-host Brandon Marshall to ask once again if Edelman has received any phone calls from Brady about joining the Bucs. It was then that Edelman suggested that things aren’t all rosy between him and Brady at the moment. “Nah, Tom hasn’t called me. And in fact, you...

    Buffalo Bills fans have every reason to be mad over the officials screwing their favorite team out of a road win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on an inexcusably missed pass interference call. The Buffalo Bills were robbed by the officials on a terrible blown call vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. On a third-down play with the goal line in sight and down three points, Bills quarterback Josh Allen threw it up in wide receiver Stefon Diggs’ direction. The pass attempt went incomplete, mostly because Buccaneers defensive back Carlton Davis held him like a bad grudge before tossing him to the ground. Buffalo had to settle for a field-goal try to send this game into the overtime period. Tampa Bay would win this game 33-27 in dramatic fashion to improve to 10-3 on the season. While Buffalo still has four games left to be played, this latest loss has the Bills on the outside looking in at a postseason berth, at least for the time being. Buffalo got screwed out of a PI call. Yet just before the Mike Evans play, this happened to...

    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills will be minus their top run-stuffing defensive tackle, Star Lotulelei, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. Lotulelei was ruled out on Friday because of a toe injury. He will miss his fourth game in five weeks, after missing three straight outings on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. The Bills’ run defense has struggled even with Lotulelei in the lineup and allowed 222 yards rushing in a 14-10 loss to New England on Monday night. “I know he’s frustrated. Sometimes you have those seasons where things come up more than other seasons,” coach Sean McDermott said. Backup tight end Tommy Sweeney was also ruled out with a hip injury. Receiver Emmanuel Sanders was excused from practice for personal reasons on Friday. Without providing any details, McDermott wouldn’t say whether Sanders would be available to play Sunday. ___ More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/hub/nfl and https://apnews.com/hub/pro-32 and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers While it wasn’t a perfect performance offensively, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers managed to do what they needed to in their 30-10 win over the Giants at Raymond James Stadium on Monday night Football. Tampa Bay didn’t run the ball especially well, and Mike Evans had a strange drop that led to a Tom Brady “interception” (if we can even call it that), but the defense stepped up in a major way, taking advantage of the Giants’ inexplicably awful offensive line and poor decision making by quarterback Daniel Jones.  The Bucs forced Jones to throw a pair of head-scratcher interceptions by applying pressure all game and racking up a pair of sacks plus nine QB hits. The secondary wasn’t perfect, but it didn’t need to be against a Giants offense that struggled to move the ball all game. Truth be told, Tampa Bay only really allowed 3 points, as the Giants’ lone touchdown came following the aforementioned interception, which set the Giants’ offense up inside the Bucs 10-yard line early in the game. After that New York touchdown,...

    Washington star Chase Young suffered a scary injury Sunday against the Buccaneers. During the second quarter, Young went down after some light contact at the line of scrimmage and it was immediately clear that he was in a ton of pain.

(Photo by Matthew Stockman/Getty Images) The New Orleans Saints look to carry the momentum from their win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers into their Week 9 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. The New Orleans Saints showed once again that they own the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the regular season. This past weekend, the Saints pulled off the 36-27 win over the defending Super Bowl champions, thanks in part to a fantastic performance by the defense. There was bad news in the win, though, as quarterback Jameis Winston suffered a torn ACL. Now, the the Saints will look to continue their winning streak this Sunday when they face the rival Atlanta Falcons, who are currently 3-4 on the year. New Orleans has had recent luck when facing the Falcons, but will it carry over into their first meeting this season? Here...

(Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images) Matt Nagy’s team is back home after being humbled by the defending Super Bowl champion Buccaneers. Can they slay the unpredictable San Francisco 49ers? It’s a clash between two team possibly headed in the wrong direction, even though there’s still a lot of football to be played. Following a 3-2 start, the Chicago Bears have lost consecutive games to the Green Bay Packers (24-14) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (38-3) – both by double digits. After winning their first two outings this season, the San Francisco 49ers have dropped their last four contests. So will the Bears get back to the .500 mark? Kyle Shanahan’s team has actually been more successful on the road (2-1) than at home in 2021 (0-3). But look for the following to occur on Sunday at Soldier Field. 5. Bears rush for...

The New Orleans Saints what would normally be an unenviable task, returning from their bye week to face the Seattle Seahawks on the road. That challenge was a lot easier with quarterback Russell Wilson sidelined with a right middle finger injury. Even so, the Saints barely squeaked out a 13-10 win in rainy Seattle. With the Saints now 4-2 on the season, they have the perfect opportunity to gain ground on the rival Tampa Bay Buccaneers. How so? They face them this Sunday!

    Gronk is back. After missing the last four games with a rib injury and a punctured lung, Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski will play on Sunday against the Saints. The Tampa Bay Times’ Joey Knight reported today from Buccaneers practice that the 32-year-old was out there, the first sign that his return may be near. NFL insider Jordan Schultz then confirmed that Gronkowski will give it a go on Halloween at 4:25 on FOX.

That doesn't mean much unless it's followed up by a strong Week 7. With the number of bye teams going up to six — the Bills, Cowboys, Vikings, Steelers, Chargers and Jaguars — it's a smaller slate of only 13 games. That lighter schedule still features three massive double-digit favorites, balanced by four games where the spread is set at four or fewer points. So this week, it's mostly either navigating a lopsided matchup or figuring out who's a slightly better bet in a close one.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Bear’s rookie running back Khalil Herbert says he loves a challenge. Well, they have one Sunday against the Bucs run defense that’s allowing 55 yards a game, 25 yards fewer than any other team. “Famine, Famine feast is what we talk about in the running back room. 3-yard runs, 4 yards. Then make them pay when they miss,” Herbert said. READ MORE: New CTA Budget Has Some Fare Reductions, Bus-Train Transfer Fees NixedThe Bears defense also has a tough test.

(Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images) Following their latest loss to the rival Packers, the Chicago Bears head south to take on the defending Super Bowl champion Buccaneers. You may recall a year ago on a Thursday night at Soldier Field, the Chicago Bears held on to defeat the eventual Super Bowl champions, 20-19. It was a game that showed that Tom Brady and the Buccaneers may not have been ready for prime time. Meanwhile, Matt Nagy’s club was on the way to a 5-1 start. Of course, that strong opening was followed by a six-game losing streak. They rallied down the stretch around quarterback Mitch Trubisky – now a member of the Buffalo Bills. Chicago claimed a wild card berth with an 8-8 record and were one-and-out come playoff time. Of course, Brady and company hoisted the Lombardi Trophy this past season. Now the Bucs host Nagy’s team in an attempt to extend their 5-1 record. Are the...
    DeVonta Smith, Philadelphia Eagles. Mandatory Credit: Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports Coming off a win, the Eagles aim to pull off a huge upset against the surging Buccaneers. Bold predictions for Philadelphia in Week 6.  The Philadelphia Eagles were underdogs last on the road against Carolina last week, as they should’ve been coming into the game at 1-3. Yet, the lines didn’t matter once the game kicked off as Nick Sirianni’s team was able to fight back and keep the Panthers in range for them to complete a come-from-behind victory. Now, the Eagles are heading back home to Lincoln Financial Field on a short week for Thursday Night Football. But they’ll be hoping for a relative repeat of last week’s result as they hope to pull off another upset over one of the best teams in the NFC, this time taking on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It’s a tall task ahead of Philadelphia but this team is certainly frisky and, though the Bucs have been dominant, they aren’t infallible. With that in mind, we have some bold predictions for the Eagles...

    Bucs safety Jordan Whitehead during practice at AdventHealth Training Center.Kyle Zedaker/Tampa Bay Buccaneers Remember last year’s Thursday night game against the Bears on Oct. 8 where the Bucs inexplicably lost to Nick Foles in Chicago? That’s what the Bucs’ upcoming Oct. 14 Thursday night matchup with the Eagles reminds me of. With the Eagles’ potentially explosive offense combined with their off-and-on defense, the Bucs are going to have a tough time. I’m thinking a sleeper game in a shortened week with a banged up Bucs team will lead to a 24-20 loss for Tampa Bay.  That’s an unpopular call—and it might not even play out that way when you look at Tom Brady’s history against Philadelphia (TB12 earned his third ring against the Eagles back in 2005 when Donovan McNabb was under center)—but I just can’t shake this feeling that Philly QB Jalen Hurts is going to have a career game against this brutally-beat up Bucs defense.  The Bucs D is already without cornerbacks Sean Murphy-Bunting and Carlton Davis III, but now rocksteady linebacker Lavonte David—who suffered an ankle injury...

In his first year with the franchise, Gruden led Tampa Bay to its first championship, beating his former...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It was a big win for the Eagles in Carolina on Sunday. The Birds pulled off a 4th Quarter comeback to end their three-game losing streak. In the words of the great Vince Lombardi, “It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up.” READ MORE: Delaware State Auditor Kathy McGuiness Indicted On Felony Theft, Misconduct ChargesThe Eagles lived that mantra against the Panthers on Sunday — especially their starting quarterback. “There was perseverance and his ability to just forget what happened in the first half because everything that we wanted out of that game which is obviously to win the game was right there in front of us and he took advantage of it and played a really good game in the second half,” head coach Nick Sirianni said. The Birds were trailing the Panthers 15-6 but were able to turn it around in the second half. Two picks and a blocked punt gave Jalen Hurts the opportunity to come-up clutch – and he delivered.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady now has 15 touchdowns this season, continuing a historic season for the 44-year-old.  A win is great. A win with 45 points is even better. And a win with five passing touchdowns and 411 passing yards is only something the NFL’s best can accomplish week in and week out. When you throw for 400+ yards and five TDs pic.twitter.com/4XhGOOBhnp — Tampa Bay Buccaneers (@Buccaneers) October 10, 2021 Before an outstanding Week 5 game against the Miami Dolphins, Tom Brady was tied at third for the most passing touchdowns in the 2021 season. Now he has 15, which puts him ahead of Los Angeles Rams sensation Matthew Stafford with 12. Unless Dak Prescott scores five touchdowns against the Giants, Brady will likely have the second-most passing touchdowns in the NFL heading into Week 6. It’s an impressive statistic for the 44-year-old quarterback who has often been criticized as a “dink and dunk” quarterback. In Miami, Terrific Tom was on full display.

    (CBS Miami) — Tom Brady was able to sneak out of New England with a victory. He brought his Tampa Bay Buccaneers back late on the Patriots, driving 45 yards to set up the game-winning field goal. That elevated the defending Super Bowl champions to 3-1 ahead of their Week 5 matchup with the Miami Dolphins. They’ll host a Dolphins team that’s coming off its third straight loss. Miami, now 1-3, fell to the winless Indianapolis Colts in Week 4, failing to keep up with Carson Wentz, who was playing on two sprained ankles. Tom Brady continues to impress at the age of 44. While his former team limited him to only 22-43 passing for 269 yards and no touchdowns, he moved the ball when it mattered. Topping the Patriots gave him at least one win over every team in the league. He also set the record for regular-season passing yards in a career, surpassing Drew Brees. Brady leads the NFL in passing yards this season with 1,356 and has tossed 10 TD passes against only two interceptions. READ MORE:...
