TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers head into a crucial matchup against the Baltimore Ravens for Thursday Night Football at Raymond James Stadium.
The Bucs (3-4) are heading into Thursday’s primetime game hoping to avoid three consecutive losses for the first time in 20 years and the Ravens (4-3) will be heading into the game with confidence after defeating the Browns and Bengals in previous weeks.
From the past two games, I think we learned anything is possible for this Buccaneers team, but with Tampa Bay missing TE Cameron Brate, CB Carlton Davis, WR Russell Gage, G Luke Goedeke, DE Akiem Hicks, CB Sean Murphy-Bunting and S Antoine Winfield Jr. due to injuries, the game could go either way.
