Now this is clearly the game everyone is waiting for this week in NFL week ten. The 2-6 Chicago Bears will head down to Florida to take on the 3-5 Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a game that will have fans glued to the television. The Bears are returning from their bye, following a win against the Minnesota Vikings in week eight. The Bucs did not fair as well last week, suffering their second straight loss, as they lost to the Atlanta Falcons.
Typically this is where I would talk about both teams, with each team getting their own paragraph. But this game features two teams that I am not quite fond of, as I always have trouble finding much positive to say about them. So of course, it is a pick’em type of game, and I cannot even take the underdog just so I can have the points. The Bears have played in four road games this season, and have not won a single one. Meanwhile, the Bucs have played four games at home, and have lost every single one.
So when I say this is a game that pits two pretty poor teams against one another, I really mean it. All of that glued to the tv stuff in paragraph one was obviously all sarcasm. Doug Martin may be returning for Tampa Bay this week, which should give them a little boost. But when all is considered, I find it very difficult to pick a team that has lost all four of their home games to this point in the season. So as much as I hate to do it, I think I have to go with the Bears.
