The young secondary will be tested Sunday when they travel to L.A. for their Week 3 matchup against the Rams.
As they learned following the 27-24 loss last season to the Rams, the Rams receivers are no joke and will open up the field against a secondary. What’s different this season? This Bucs secondary is sitting on a 10-game winning streak and this defense overall is scary.
It’s grave-digging season
The duo of Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods did a number on the secondary the last two seasons. The difference from then to now is simple though. They’re hungry. They have some graves to continue filling.
Carlton Davis III, Sean Murphy-Bunting, Jamel Dean, Mike Edwards, and Jordan Whitehead are dynamic players individually and collectively. You add Antoine Winfield Jr. into the mix and this Bucs secondary is the best in the game.
Enter Matthew Stafford
The thing that matters this week is keeping Matthew Stafford from having a big game and locking down Kupp and Woods. They also need to remain aware of their assignment when DeSean Jackson enters play. Regardless of your feelings for D Jax, he can still perform.
It won’t all be on the secondary, but the front seven of the Bucs should be able to get to Matthew Stafford. In all reality, the Bucs defense has had success against both Stafford and the Rams in their previous meetings.
It could easily become a shootout In L.A.
Both teams are off to a hot start this season, which means that it could become a shootout really quick.
With a 10-game winning streak on the line, how do you see the secondary faring vs the Rams on Sunday? Let us know in the comments.
