Arizona Cardinals vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Preview and Predictions 11-10-2019


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play the first game in their home stadium in nearly 50 days when they carry a four-game losing streak into a matchup with the visiting Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. The Buccaneers played four road games, served as the home squad in a London affair and had a bye over the past six weeks, gaining just one victory in that span.

"Well, we've enjoyed our golden tour, but we are happy to be back at (Raymond James Stadium)," quarterback Jameis Winston told reporters. "We can't focus on what's behind us. We focus on this week, taking it day-by-day. It's the midpoint of the season, so we are trying to turn this thing around." Tampa Bay head coach Bruce Arians will be going up against the team he coached for five seasons before stepping down following the 2017 campaign. The Cardinals dipped to three wins last year after Arians left and are trying to eclipse that total under Kliff Kingsbury, but they've dropped two in a row. A late comeback fell short for Arizona in a 28-25 loss to San Francisco on Oct. 31.

TV: 1 p.m. ET FOX. LINE: Buccaneers -4.5. O/U: 52

ABOUT THE CARDINALS (3-5-1): Rookie quarterback Kyler Murray threw for 241 yards and two touchdowns in the loss to the 49ers and he's gone five straight games without an interception. He's been bolstered by fill-in running backs Chase Edmonds (now out with a hamstring injury) and Kenyan Drake, but the team is excited to get starter David Johnson back from an ankle injury this week. "Having two really good running backs where we can do different things with is exciting for us and this offense," Kingsbury told reporters of Drake and Johnson. "Reps, rotation, that will work itself out, but just to have two guys we feel like can be dominant players for us is exciting."

ABOUT THE BUCCANEERS (2-6): Winston is averaging 300.9 passing yards per game but he enters Week 10 tied for the NFL lead with 12 interceptions and he's been sacked an NFL-high 30 times. Star wideout Mike Evans remains the top target and has 32 catches for 474 yards and three scores over the past three games. Ronald Jones II has assumed the primary ball-carrying duties and hopes to provide more of a boost for a team that averaged just 85.8 yards on the ground during the five-game stretch away from home.

EXTRA POINTS

1. Arizona has the fewest turnovers in the NFL with four while Tampa Bay has given it up 18 times, second-most in the league.

2. Johnson averaged 132.3 total yards in the three games before suffering the ankle injury

3. The Cardinals won the last three meetings, all with Arians as their coach, including a 38-33 victory at Tampa Bay in 2017 in which they nearly squandered a 31-0 lead.
