St. Louis Rams
Daryl Richardson is only in his second NFL season, and he was pushed into the starting running back position for the St. Louis Rams. If ever there was a time for Richardson to grow up in a hurry, the 2013 season is it.
In what’s been a roller coaster season for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, receiver Vincent Jackson has been a model of consistency and quietly put together one of the best seasons of his career.
After playing well for a while, the Bucs’ struggles have escalated and watching them has become unbearable. But somehow, they’ll need to fix what has gone totally wrong.
Going into Sunday’s game St. Louis is clinging to slim playoff hopes, while Tampa Bay is already assured of missing the NFL postseason for the fifth straight year.
The Bucs have many players on injured reserve, but the active players are relatively healthy. However, Aaron Morgan could miss Sunday’s game against the Rams.
The Bucs will take on the Rams on Sunday in a rather meaningless game. But the Bucs shouldn’t take the Rams lightly, because they’re better than they appear to be.
Because they’ve fallen behind early in recent games, the Bucs haven’t been able to run the ball effectively. But they want to get back to running the ball a lot more.
