Arizona Cardinals vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Prediction,
Preview – 11-10-2019
Where: Raymond James Stadium
When: Sunday, November 10, 2019, 1:00 pm ET
We have a non-divisional NFC matchup to consider for Sunday when the 3-5-1 Arizona Cardinals and 2-6 Tampa Bay Buccaneers meet for a game of tackle football. Arizona is coming off a 28-25 home loss to the San Francisco 49ers and Tampa Bay lost a 40-34 overtime heartbreaker against the Seahawks in Seattle. Both teams desperately need a win to keep their slim playoff chances alive and I look forward to discussing this matchup with you on Thursday.
Cardinals Two Game Losing Streak
Arizona has suffered two consecutive losses but has won three of its last five games but remains in the last place in the NFC West with a 3-5-1 record. The Cardinals are coming off a Thursday night game and have had plenty of time to rest and get healthy. If the Cardinals want to reach the playoffs, they need a victory in the worst way after those defeats to New Orleans and last week’s home loss to the 49ers. That all begins Sunday with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Buccaneers defense is in the bottom third of the National Football League, allowing 371 yards of total offense. Tampa Bay allows 293.5 passing yards alongside an NFL best 78.1 rushing yards allowed and 19 sacks this season.
You beat the Buccaneers via the air and Arizona rookie quarterback Kyler Murray has been fantastic this season. The rookie signal-caller has thrown for 2229 yards along with nine touchdowns, four interceptions and has suffered 29 sacks. Murray has also rushed for an additional 313 yards with three touchdowns this season.
Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald leads the Cardinals with 475 receiving yards and a pair of scores. Wideout Christian Kirk has 329 receiving yards, wide receiver Damiere Byrd has 178 receiving yards and wideout KeeSean Johnson has 173 receiving yards and a touchdown this season.
It’s going to be difficult running the football on Sunday but at least Arizona will have David Johnson back in uniform after missing the past couple of games due to injury. Johnson has rushed for 300 yards with two touchdowns alongside 315 receiving yards and three touchdowns. Running back Chase Edmunds is doubtful and newly acquired running back Kenyan Drake has 110 rushing yards and a touchdown in his one outing with the Cardinals.
Four Game Losing Streak
Tampa Bay has lost four consecutive games and those losses have left the Buccaneers with a 2-6 record and this football team hasn’t won a game at home this season. The Bucs are third in the NFC South and they have a ways to go if they would like to reach the playoffs but the passing defense needs to step up otherwise this Tampa Bay football team will be watching the playoffs from their mansions.
Arizona allows the third-most yards in the NFL this season on 293 passing yards along with 126.9 rushing yards allowed this season. The Cardinals have also registered 19 sacks this season.
Quarterback Jameis Winston has thrown for 2407 yards with 16 touchdowns, 12 interceptions and has suffered 30 sacks this season. Winston has rushed for an additional 99 yards this season.
Wideouts Mike Evans and Chris Godwin are having monster seasons; Evans has 50 receptions for 842 yards with seven touchdowns and Godwin has 54 receptions for 766 yards alongside six trips to the end zone. Tight end O.J. Howard has 176 receiving yards and Cameron Brate has 151 receiving yards and a pair of scores for Tampa Bay this season.
Tampa Bay will try and establish a running game and they have a pair of backs to get the job done. Running back Ronald Jones Jr has rushed for 381 yards with three touchdowns and running back Peyton Barber has rushed for 277 yards with three touchdowns.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a professional American football franchise based in Tampa, Florida. The Buccaneers currently compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the league’s National Football Conference (NFC) South division. The club joined the NFL in 1976 as an expansion team, along with the Seattle Seahawks. Tampa Bay played its first season in the American Football Conference (AFC) West division as part of the 1976 expansion plan, whereby each new franchise would play every other franchise over the first two years. After the season, the team switched conferences with the Seahawks and became a member of the NFC Central division. During the 2002 league realignment, the Buccaneers joined three former NFC West teams to form the NFC South. The club is owned by the Glazer family, and plays its home games at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.
The Buccaneers are the first post-merger expansion team to win a division championship, a playoff game, and to host and play in a conference championship game; all three accomplishments occurred during the 1979 season. They are also the first team since the merger to complete a winning season when starting 10 or more rookies, which happened in the 2010 season. In 1976 and 1977, the Buccaneers lost their first 26 games. They would not win their first game in franchise history until Week 13, of 14, in 1977. After a brief winning era in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the team suffered through 14 consecutive losing seasons. Then, for a 10-year period, they were consistent playoff contenders and won Super Bowl XXXVII at the end of the 2002 season, but have not yet returned to the Super Bowl.
As of the end of 2018 NFL season, the Buccaneers have played 43 seasons and compiled an overall record of 266–424–1 (.386), with a regular-season record of 255–404–1 (.387) and a playoff record of 6–9 (.400). The Buccaneers have the dubious honor of having the worst win-loss percentage of the 32 NFL teams.
