Tampa Bay Buccaneers looking to go top in the NFC South Division table

After a poor display against NFC South rivals New Orleans Saints in Week 9, Tom Brady led the Buccaneers to a comfortable win against the Teddy Bridgewater-led Carolina Panthers last weekend.

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.

Will the Sean McVay-led Los Angeles Rams pull off an upset on Monday?

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.
