The Buccaneers have an elite offense and they showcased that against the Browns defense that at times looked lost and confused. This has something to do with injuries, but you cannot commit penalty after penalty either. The Browns had so many penalties today many of them should not have happened. Encroachment and offsides and illegal procedure should not happen. You can blame coaching but in the end, it comes down to the players on the field. They know exactly what to do, but are not executing it very well.
John Dorsey has made many changes one was getting rid of players he felt were not winners. yes, the Browns are better this season, but they are still making the same mistakes they did when they were 0-16. A coaching change is probably the next step, but there are so many problems that need to be addressed as well. What has happened to the Browns defense it has been shredded the last two games? How about Duke Johnson? Johnson is frustrated and you cannot blame him one bit. He was supposed to get more touches, but it looks the same in my opinion.
The Cleveland Browns have many issues internal and external. Hopefully, they can get it fixed soon if not it looks like another bad season in Cleveland.

Tampa Bay has one of the best offenses in the NFL ranking either one or two most weeks. The Bucs can score points and a lot of them. One of there issues on offense is they virtually have no running game at all. This means teams know they are going to pass it to their talented core of receivers but no one seems to be able to stop it. You would think they would be at the top of there division because of it, but they are not. Tampa Bay has one of the worse defenses in the NFL. They give up huge chunks of yardage and points. This usually puts all the pressure on the offense to outscore their opponents. In today's NFL that just is not possible.
The Cleveland Browns have issues as well and are at a crossroad as well. After the drubbing by the Chargers, many things are starting to come out about this young Browns team. Words such as fragile and not on the same page are being heard. Injuries are also playing a role as well. Players like Jarvis Landry hasn't produced the numbers the Browns had hoped for to this point. Trading away Josh Gordon was probably not a good move considering the Browns injuries as wide receiver. This is a young team and when you start to lose finger pointing starts to come out. Baker Mayfield is not use to losing and that is why this week in Tampa is so important to both teams.
Tampa Bay and Cleveland both are at crossroads and which team will do enough to win this game. The losing team could find their season spiraling out of control. This is why both teams understand this is a must win this Sunday. The question is who will want it more Tampa Bay or Cleveland.

Jameis Winston did not look very good in his debut and it has many people wondering if he will be an NFL quarterback. What many people tend to forget it is pre-season and it takes some time for a player to get use to the game. No matter how good you are the game is much different then the college game. In college you may only see a few exceptional players on a team. The NFL has them at every position which makes it a lot tougher.
Ball security is something Winston must always keep in mind. If you are struggling just do not turn the ball over. When you do you will find a quick exit out of this league. Players who make mistakes are cut because teams know there is always someone waiting in the wings to take there place.
I personally like Winston and what he can do for a team. If people give Winston time he should become a good NFL quarterback. In Tampa he has some very good receivers and coaches. His players believe in him and that is usually half the battle. Winston just needs to relax and perform better in game 2 of his career.

Brooks played on a great defense that won a Super Bowl and he was a big reason they won. Brooks will be remembered as a classy guy who put team first. Off the field he was just as classy doing many good things in his community. Derrick Brooks was a great choice for the Pro Football Hall Of Fame.

Tampa Bay is a very young team and Raheem Morris did all he could, but new leadership was needed. The Buccaneers are young and need a coach with a lot more experience to lead them. Morris was just not the guy to do it. I told people this when the Bucs let go of Jon Gruden. Now the Buccaneers will need to find another coach and the search begins. let's hope they find a coach that will work out long-term and not be another coaching carousel in Tampa Bay.

Tampa Bay has given up 48 points twice this season and if they do it in their last game they will set an NFL record. Playing Atlanta it is a good possibility that record could fall. This season Tampa Bay has given up over 400 points and that will never win you many football games. The Bucs are looking at the sixth pick if everything stays the way it is. Buccaneer fans are getting tired of worrying about draft picks they want to see success on the field.
When the Buccaneers fired Jon Gruden I told people the Bucs would fall fast and so far my prediction has come true. They have some good players, but are horrible on defense. Unless the Buccaneers get defensive help and in a hurry us Buccaneer fans could be looking at another long 2012 season. It is time the Buccaneers cut loose of Raheem Morris and call it a failed experiment. We need to bring a coach in here with a record of winning if we want to get back to the playoffs and winning Buc football. We know now Raheem Morris is not that guy.

For the Dallas Cowboys they have had many mental lapses and questionable moves that have their owner and fans shaking their heads. This is a must win for the Dallas Cowboys who still have the Eagles and Giants to play. If Dallas wants to make the playoffs they must continue to win games. A loss could really hurt there chances at the playoffs. Getting a win in Tampa will be a good start for the final three games of the regular season.
