The Buccaneers may be 1-3, but they have reason to be hopeful in Week 5. They are favored in a football game at home.
That game may be against another 1-3 team — the Jacksonville Jaguars — but it presents a huge opportunity for Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston, who took a giant step back in his rookie campaign by throwing four interceptions in Tampa Bay’s Week 4 loss to the Panthers. The Bucs would go a long way towards righting the ship if they are able to beat Jacksonville at Raymond James Stadium.
