Arians and Brady vs McVay and Stafford. Let the offensive mind games and execution of the game plans begin. Sorry, fans of the defensive side of the game, but this one has the makings of a shootout. 

Tom Brady is just being rude to “father time” at this point. Not only is the 44-year-old quarterback still playing well in the league, he’s off to one of his best starts ever, throwing nine touchdowns to just two interceptions through the first two games of the season. Last week, he threw five touchdowns against the Falcons and that was after throwing four the opening week against the Cowboys. 

Brady, of course, is well supported in Tampa with an embarrassment of riches when it comes to talented targets. That was true last year when they won the Super Bowl and it’s true yet again this year. Rob Gronkowski has caught four touchdowns this season, while Mike Evans caught two last week against the Falcons, while Chris Godwin has also reeled in two touchdowns. That’s why this offense has scored the most points in the NFL to this point averaging just under 40-points-per-game.

One weapon may be missing this week however as Antonio Brown was placed in COVID protocol and could miss Sunday’s game if he doesn’t turn in two negative tests 24-hours apart prior to Sunday. 

While Brady and the Bucs have been lighting it up in Tampa, Matthew Stafford and Sean McVay have been tactical in Los Angeles. The Rams have designed and executed an offense that is averaging 30.5 ppg over the first two weeks of the season and has Stafford posting a 127 passer rating with five touchdowns and one interception.  

This week's inactives are as follows:

Buccaneers: WR Antonio Brown, DE Khalil Davis, OG Nick Leverett, WR Jaydon Mickens, LB Kevin Minter, LB Jason Pierre-Paul, QB Kyle Trask

Rams: DT Bobby Brown, RB Darrell Henderson, TE Brycen Hopkins, S JuJu Hughes, OT Alaric Jackson, QB Bryce Perkins, S J.R. Reed

Stafford’s top target is fifth-year wideout Cooper Cupp who has tallied three touchdown receptions and 271 yards this season good enough for the third most receiving yards in the league. Cupps’ 16 receptions also have him in a four-way tie for most catches so far this year. 

The Buccaneers are 1.5-point road favorites against the Rams. The over/under is 55.5.
