Let's keep it civil and on-topic, please.

Tampa is at home and favored by three, with an over/under of 48.

The two teams met in Week 3 with the Rams defeating Tampa by the score of 34-24. Of course winning a game earlier has no relevance to a rematch; a year ago the Bucs lost both regular season games to New Orleans - the second one by the score of 38-3 - and then rebounded with a 30-20 victory at New Orleans in the Divisional Round.

12-5 Los Angeles began the season 7-1, their only loss in the first half of the year coming in Week 4 versus Arizona. Then came a three-game losing streak, with losses versus Tennessee, at San Francisco and at Green Bay. Then they won five in a row before losing in the final week of the season to the 49ers, with a playoff berth already clinched and no chance at securing a bye.

13-4 Tampa similarly began the year strong, jumping out to a 6-1 start. They were upset both going into and coming out of their bye (road losses to New Orleans and Washington), then finished the year 7-1. Interestingly this was the second year in a row they were swept by the Saints.

Why was Cincinnati beating Tennessee an upset? To me, those were two evenly matched teams.

I'll give you SF over GB. Upset indeed.

I'm not sure Rams beating TB would be an upset either. Rams are well coached with great players at all positions. I've decided upon a score. 31-21 Rams. I'm predicting a Rams pick six by Ramsey.

Brady doesn't perform badly. It's more the Rams front takes advantage of the injured Bucs line.

Regardless, Brady is playing with house money here.

I'm watching because if it is indeed Brady's last game ever, I want to experience it.

Mistake. Just fixed.

I was looking for a 'just hang me' or 'just shoot me' emoji for your first comment.

Glad this game is on first today. Tom will have some extra incentive today as he wants SF next week.

Just based on posted commercial betting odds, not personal expectations or desired outcome.

Third String But Playing on Special Teams
I really hope Rams win.
But Brady vs. Jimmy G would make a great NFCCG - I just don't want the Bucs or Chiefs in the SB again.
At this point I'm pulling for Bengals / Rams SB.

America certainly wouldn't prefer that match up lol

More Tampa Bay Team Stats. The Bucs offense was arguably the best in the NFL this past season. Jumping out to a lead caused opponents to become one-dimensional when those teams got the ball back.

Third String But Playing on Special Teams
Could be the game of the weekend. Just want to see an epic settled on the last play. Not bothered who wins as it's JG's year in either case.
