49ers Vs. Buccaneers: Can Tampa Bay Keep Maintain Momentum On A Short Week?

Coming off their win over the Indianapolis Colts, the Bucs have to travel cross country for a mid-Sunday matchup with the San Fransisco 49ers.

It's been less than 48 hours since the Tampa Bay Buccaneers dispatched the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football, but we're already talking about their next opponent, the San Fransisco 49ers. The Bucs have to travel across the Country on a short week to take on the 49ers in a game that starts at 4:05 eastern time and can be seen on FOX.

The 49ers are also going to have to fly cross country this week, but they have an extra day to do it. They came back to beat the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday so they should be coming into this fame with a little bit of momentum of their own. Frank Gore is a physical runner who could give the young Bucs defensive line a lot of problems.

We'll have more on this game throughout the week in this StoryStream. For more on the Buccaneers, head over to our Bucs blog Bucs Nation. For more on the 49ers head over to Niners Nation and SB Nation Bay Area.
