During the regular season Tampa Bay had one of the most explosive offenses in the league. Brady completed 67.5% of his passes for 5,316 yards and 43 touchdowns during the regular season.
On the other side of the line the Rams finished the regular season as the No. 9 offense in the NFL, averaging 372.1 yards per game. Stafford completed 67.2% of his passes for 4,886 yards and 41 touchdowns.
The way you beat Tom Brady in the playoffs, you have to put pressure on him and the Rams have just the team to do this. The Bucs could be down two starters on the offensive line — Tristan Wirfs (right tackle) and Ryan Jensen (center) so check the status of those players.On the offensive side of the ball Stafford needs to play error free football no interceptions and they have a shot to do what no team has been able to do which is beat brady in the playoffs.
The line in this one is begging us to take TB at (-3.0) but the Rams IMHO are a team the Bucs did not want to meet in the playoffs.
This has the makings of an old fashion gun fight and we are grabbing the points here (+3.0) and the LA Rams.
Prediction: Rams 38, Buccaneers 31
