NFL: New York Giants at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots travel down to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers in another must see Thursday Night Football matchup… and by must see, I mean if you aren't a baseball fan.

(2-2) New England Patriots at (2-1) Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Location: Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, Florida

Kickoff: 8:25 PM ET

Line: Patriots -5.5O/U: 56

TV: NFL Network, Amazon, CBS

Announcers: Jim Nantz and Tony Romo, with Tracy Wolfson on the sidelines.

The Patriots have, statistically speaking, the worst defense in the NFL this season. Which is really unheard of in the Bill Belichick era.

Yet, that's where they stand.

On the other side, well are the Bucs for real or not? Two big wins against one bad performance. Who is this team?

In fantasy, I am going heavy Bucs this week, so I expect the Pats to find their way and manhandle the Bucs offense and Jameis Winston.

Pats 35

Bucs 31
