This Sunday, the 3-4 Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play the 3-4 Houston Texans. The Houston Texans will attempt to get back on their winning ways versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home after falling short 15–13 in week 8. CJ Stroud, a talented rookie QB, will aim to improve on his mixed showing from the previous week. After losing to the Buffalo Bills on Thursday evening, the Buccaneers are taking a longer break. Now that the Bucs have dropped their past 3 games, they have not scored 20 points or more in any of those losses. The Bucs’ campaign is rapidly deteriorating despite a strong 3-1 beginning, and they are in dire need of a victory to bounce back to 4-4.
Houston’s offensive output has been quite uneven, with 10 throwing scores compared to only 3 rushing scores. The Texans have allowed 5 pass scores compared to 8 rush scores on defense. The Panthers and Houston met in Sunday’s last contest. The Texans led 13-12 into the closing quarter, but they ultimately suffered a terrible 15-13 loss. Dameon Pierce paced the way in rushing with 46 yards on 12 carries, while CJ Stroud ended with 140 yards on 16 of 24 throws. 3 receptions for 57 yards were added by Noah Brown.
The Buccaneers are last according to this category after only one rushing score thus far. The positive aspect is that Tampa Bay has scored ten scores via the air and has been successful in their passing attack. In their most recent setback, which came last Thursday against the Bills, Tampa Bay trailed 24-10 going into the final period and ultimately lost 24-18. Quarterback Baker Mayfield completed with a pair of touchdown passes and 237 yards. In addition, Rachaad White topped the receivers with 70 yards from 7 receptions and added 39 yards on 9 carries.
