Titans vs. Buccaneers

This is a matchup between two teams that struggled last season but now have rookie quarterbacks starting for them in the Bucs’ Jameis Winston and the Titans’ Marcus Mariota.  Both quarterbacks had good moments and bad in the preseason and that will more than likely continue in the regular.

However, the Buccaneers have more fire power on offense for Winston in wide receivers Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson.  In the end I think the this will be the difference in the game and the Buccaneers will come out on top at home.

Winner:  Buccaneers

Score prediction:       20-17  Buccaneers   

Points spread:      Buccaneers -2.5

Over/under:  41 – Under
