After losing dramatically to the Houston Texans last week, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers travel to Green Bay to take on the undefeated Packers in Week 11 of the NFL season. The Buccaneers are 4-5 this season and are coming off a historically difficult stretch of matchups, and things won't get any easier this week. They are almost unanimously picked to lose today to the Packers, and they are given an 8% chance of winning today by writers at Advanced NFL Stats.
The Buccaneers have struggled on defense this season, and they have suffered some big injuries (e.g. Gerald McCoy, out for the season). Albert Haynesworth filled in for them well last week and might be able to help them contain the Packers' offense slightly, but this will be a large task for them. Also, the Buccaneers need Josh Freeman to step it up on offense, as he's thrown seven interceptions over the past three weeks.
Game Date/Time: Sunday, November 20; 1:00pm EST
Location: Lambeau Field, Green Bay, WI
Buccaneers: 620 WDAE
