The Rams and Bucs have both reached the mountain top after a new quarterback has taken over their offense in recent history. Last season it was Matthew Stafford boosting the Rams to a championship. The year prior, it was Tom Brady leading the Bucs to their second Super Bowl ring in franchise history. Now both teams and quarterbacks are looking to overcome slow starts and get back to a level of play they are more familiar with. 

The Rams enter this match up having lost three of their last four and fresh off a loss to their division rival 49ers. Stafford threw for just 187 yards in that loss, his lowest total since his move to Los Angeles. All-pro wide receiver Cooper Kupp reeled in 8 catches in that game for 79 yards. 

The Bucs come into week nine having lost three-straight and with an overall record of 3-5. Brady’s offense, like Stafford’s has taken a major dip this season. The Bucs are averaging 12 points-per-game fewer than they did a season ago, while the Rams are down 10ppg. Both teams rank in the bottom eight in scoring this season.

Brady is taking the brunt of it in Tampa. Thanks to his own struggles, injuries and/or suspensions to his receiving core and his offensive-minded head coach Bruce Arians taking on a different role the team, the now 45-year-old Brady is putting up some of the worst numbers in his career. His 92.4 passer rating is the worst he’s seen since being in Tampa and his 49.1 quarterback rating is the worst of his career.

The last time these teams faced each other was the divisional round of the playoffs a year ago.  The Rams won that matchup 30-27 on a 30-yard field goal as time expired, then of course went on to win the Super Bowl.

As of Sunday morning, the Action Network (opens in new tab) still has the Buccaneers as 3-point favorites against the Rams.
