The Tom Brady-led Tampa Bay Buccaneers are currently second in the NFC South Division table. Bruce Arians’ boys will be eager to build some momentum heading into a crucial stage of the season.
They will host Jared Goff’s Los Angeles Rams in Week 11 at the Raymond James Stadium in a Monday night prime-time clash. It’s going to be a battle between one of the best offensive teams and defensive teams in the league.
Here’s a detailed look at both teams, along with injury updates and Week 11 Game Day predictions.
Brady will be desperate to chalk together a winning run in order to secure a playoff spot before the regular season ends.
Buccaneers wideouts Antonio Brown, Chris Goodwin, and Mike Evans will be key players on Monday night. Coach Arians is sweating on the fitness of tight ends, OJ Howard and Rob Gronkowski. It will be interesting to see how the veteran NFL coach copes with this minor injury crisis.
The Rams are currently second in the NFC West Division table behind the Seattle Seahawks and above Kyler Murray’s Arizona Cardinals.
The visitors have won just 2 of their 5 away games this season. Coach Sean McVay will hope to improve on that record in Week 11.
Quarterback Jared Goff will look for some support in the offense from wideouts, Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, and Tyler Higbee. But the major spotlight will be on Los Angeles Rams defensive stars, CB Jalen Ramsey, and DE Aaron Donald.
Both these players will need to put in a strenuous shift at the Raymond James Stadium if they intend to thwart the free-flowing Buccaneers offense.

The Jalen Ramsey-Antonio Brown and Aaron Donald-Tom Brady clashes will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of this high-octane game. Make sure you don’t miss it at any cost.
