Patriots vs Buccaneers Prediction

The Patriots defense has been the worst in the NFL. They suddenly seem old this year and I can see no reason for that to change this week. The Bucs offense will roll against the Pats defense. This will be another Thursday Night shootout and will be fun to watch.

Buccaneers +5.5 & Over 55.5
