The Los Angeles Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers clash for the third time in 14 months on Sunday.
A rematch of last season’s thrilling NFC Divisional is set to take place at Raymond James Stadium Sunday, as the Los Angeles Rams (3-4) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-5) look to get back on track after slow starts to the season.
The two teams will clash for the third time in 14 months after the Rams won 34-24 in Week 3 of last season before pulling off another win over quarterback Tom Brady and the Bucs in the playoffs after an exciting 30-27 finish.
But things are much different this time around for both teams.
The Bucs stumble into Sunday on a three-game losing streak while the Rams are coming off a 31-14 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 8, which saw LA get shutout in the second half.
The Rams will see the return of running back Cam Akers after a three-game absence for personal reasons. However, his return is unlikely to help remedy LA’s poor rushing offense, which is averaging the second-fewest rush yards per game (68.4) this season.
The only team averaging less? Tampa Bay at 61.9 yards per game. Sunday should be a pass-heavy battle.
Live updates will appear below at kickoff.
