Buccaneers Player to Watch: Vincent Jackson
During practices this week, Patriots defenders could not stop Vincent Jackson. He tore the secondary apart and will likely do it all over again. This time it will be in front of the TV audience.
Patriots Player to Watch: Kenbrell Thompkins
This kid has been turning heads and will likely be starting on offense. He went undrafted during the offseason, but he is grabbing the attention of the Patriots staff and fans. He will be one to watch.
Matchup to Watch: Vincent Jackson vs Patriots Secondary
I mentioned it earlier, Vincent Jackson tore up the Patriots secondary in there practices together this week. Jackson is a tough matchup for any corner.
With Tom Brady possibly missing this game, the Buccaneers will walk away with the win. Vincent Jackson will probably put up some big numbers in his limited playing time.
Buccaneers 24, Patriots 10.
