Defense Outlook Week 7

The Buccaneers (DEF7) absolutely manhandled the Green Bay Packers offense in Week 6. In fact, they did something rarely seen over Aaron Rodgers’ illustrious 12-plus year career as a starter, they rattled him.

After laying a goose egg in the opening week of the season, the Bucs’ defense has found its groove, averaging 12.2 ppg since Week 2, the most by any D/ST unit over that span. Tampa Bay’s opponents this week, the Las Vegas Raiders, aren’t the most ideal of matchups, as they tend to be quite smart with the football. With that said, there are still points to be had. The Raiders allowed an average of 8.33 points to opposing D/STs from Week 2 through Week 4.
