The Buffalo Bills will face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday in a game that will have little relevance on how each of their divisions and their conferences will play out. Both teams are well below .500 and have no hopes of making the postseason now – they are playing for pride, their jobs, and on building for next season. The game will start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Bills come into this game in the basement of the AFC East with a poor 4-8 record. They will be hoping to catch the New York Jets who are ahead of them in third place and who are on 5-7. The Jets have fallen badly in recent weeks and this could be an opportunity for the Bills to get out of the basement of the AFC East before the end of the regular season.
Meanwhile, the Buccaneers are tied with the Atlanta Falcons on 3-9 at the bottom of the NFC South. The division is split into two races now, with the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers tied at the top on 9-3, and the Falcons and Buccaneers fighting it out for third.
The Buccaneers have been in reasonable form over recent weeks. They managed to gain a surprise win over the Detroit Lions in Week 12, with their 24-21 win turning some heads. However, they were taken down by the surging Carolina Panthers last week 6-27.
That game was hugely frustrating for the Buccaneers' offense, and they will be hoping to express themselves better this week against the Bills.
The Buccaneers have one of the worst offenses in the league this season, and they are ranked 30th for points scored per game (18.1 points), 31st for total yards gained per game (295.2 yards), and 30th for total yards on pass per game (189.1 yards).
Meanwhile, the Bills are only ranked one place above the Buccaneers for pass, and are ranked 29th with 198.1 yards in the air per game. However, the Bills are ranked a high 4th on rush, posting 139.2 yards per game on the ground.
They will want to bounce back today from their disappointing 31-34 loss to the Atlanta Falcons last week.
