The (2-4) Buccaneers have not played in a game in the United States in three weeks now with their bye week last week and a game in London against the Panthers in Week 6. Jamies Winston needs to figure out how to not throw it to the other team as he had 5 interceptions in their last game. Along with that, they fumbled the ball twice. The Saints seem to be running away with the NFC South, but crazier things have happened if the Buccaneers can start winning. On the other side, we have the (3-4) Titans who had a strong win last week over the Chargers to keep them in the race for a very tight AFC South division. Last week, they turned away from Marcus Mariota and relied on Ryan Tannehill which paid off. Tannehill is expected to be the starter again this week in a very important game for the Titans.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Analysis
In their last game, Jamies Winston doubled his amount of interceptions on the season by throwing 5 in one game. The Buccaneers already have their problems on offense and can’t take so many turnovers if they want any chance at winning games. Chris Godwin and Mike Evans provide one of the best one-two wide receiver options among NFL teams, but the Buccaneers don’t have anything else to build off this. O.J. Howard has been a disappointment at tight end and their run game is almost non-existant with Peyton Barber and Ronald Jones still dualing for the main back.
This game won’t be an easy game for the Buccaneers as the Titans’ defense has remained in the top 10 all year. The Buccaneers have shown that they depend on their pass game to generate any offense. On defense, the Buccaneers have the worst pass defense in the NFL. The Titans have recently changed quarterbacks which worked last week. This game will either result in a blow out for the Titans early on, or Jamies Winston will come in clutch for the Buc’s offense and lead this game into being a shootout.

Tennessee Titans Analysis
The Titans find themselves in a game that they should win and must win if they want to stay competitive in the playoff race. Ryan Tannehill is set to be the starter yet again after a solid performance in a big win against the Chargers last week. He managed to spread the ball around with nine different targets. Derrick Henry also looked good with 90 yards on 22 carries with a touchdown. When the offense is all working at the same time, they have the ability to be a team that can compete with the best. They are just very inconsistent which has led to their four losses.
To beat the Buccaneers, they will just have to focus on stopping Jamies Winston. His confidence might be low after a 5 interception, followed by a bye week. The Titans’ schedule doesn’t get any easier after this game with the Panthers and Chiefs as their next to matchups. Ryan Tannehill should be ready to throw a ton this week as the Buccaneers have allowed the most passing yards per game in the NFL. Most of their offense will be generated through the air.

Daily Fantasy: Welcome Back Ryan Tannehill
Ryan Tannehill made his return as a starter last week against the Chargers and looked impressive, at least better than Marcus Mariota has. He is expected to continue to start for the Titans as long as it is working and this week is the best matchup he could hope for as the Buccaneers have allowed the most passing yards per game in the NFL. The Titans don’t hold a very elite group of wide receivers, but they haven’t failed to surprise some weeks. I expect a lot coming from Tannehill this week in a big game for the Titans.
