Tampa Bay’s Morning Krewe

Weekdays 5:30AM - 10:00AM

The Bucs looked good last week in beating the Falcons. Ok, Jameis threw two picks early, but the defense held up their end and the Bucs got the win in Atlanta. The Bucs travel to Jacksonville to play the Jaguars this Sunday at 1. The Jags are coming off a big loss to the Titans 42-20 and the Jags have lost three games in row.  Hopefully the Bucs can add to that losing streak and add to the Jags losing streak.  Here are three things to look forward to during the game.

1 – Leonard Fournette. They Jaguars running back is a force running the ball for the Jags and the Bucs #1 rushing defense needs to stop him.  He has run for almost 1,000 yards this year, but only 3 touchdowns, so hopefully Fournette doesn’t find success running the ball against the formidable defensive line of the Bucs.

2 – Nick Foles. The Jags quarterback will be playing in his third game back after being injured in the opening game against the Chiefs.  Foles is a Super Bowl MVP when the Eagles won a the Super Bowl a few years ago, so we know he knows won to win.  In the two games since coming back from injury he is 0-2 and has thrown for almost 300 yards in each game.  The Bucs defense, who played well against Matt Ryan last week, will need to be on it again this week.

3 – Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. The wide receiver duo reached an exclusive club last Sunday as both of them hit 1,000 yards receiving for the season. Mike Evans joined Randy Moss as the only players in NFL history to open their careers with six straight 1,000-yard receiving seasons. Chris Godwin leads the league in touchdown catches with 9. The pair of receivers need to keep adding to their total for the Bucs to beat the Jags this Sunday.
