Bold predictions for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in primetime against the Bears.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are currently riding a high with a 3-1 record and first place position in the NFC South. The team just had its best offensive performance of the season with the running and passing games both succeeding.

Not only did the Buccaneers overcome a 17-point deficit on Sunday, but they were also able to do it while making impressive plays on both sides of the ball. They won a game in a different way than their previous two wins on a day when the defense was not able to bail out the sloppy first half play by the offense.

The game felt like a turning point for the team as long as they can ride the momentum into a full 60 minutes of solid play in their next game. Right now, the Buccaneers have been a team of two halves.

Now the Buccaneers will play its first game under the lights when they travel to Chicago to play the Bears. The Bears are also 3-1, but they are coming off a poor performance with a loss to the Indianapolis Colts. The game will be the Bucs game against a non-divisional NFC opponent.

Winning a national TV game against the Bears in Chicago is no easy task, but this might be one of the best matchups for the Buccaneers in a short week. The Bears had not been impressive during the team’s 3-0 start and now want to bounce back after losing on Sunday. Despite injuries, the Buccaneers should be able to hold them off on Thursday.
