The Denver Broncos will give it a go again this week after two unsuccessful tries to get a win this season. They will get Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who will look to at least get a share of the division lead in the NFC South. Check out our preview of this game below.

TV Broadcast: FOX
Betting on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-6)
Regular Season Record: 1-1
The Bucs’ offense is still a work in progress, but it’s slowly coming together now with Tom Brady at the helm. It showed when the Bucs defeated the Carolina Panthers, 31-17, last Sunday at home. Brady went 23of-35 for 217 yards and a touchdown against an interception, but it was Leonard Fournette, who had the best day among all Bucs. After a silent outing in Week 1, Fournette broke out for 103 rushing yards and two touchdowns on seven carries. Having already established himself with a nice performance for the Bucs, Fournette is poised to produce again in Week 3, as he’ll have the Broncos’ subpar run defense that is currently just 25th in the NFL with 274.0 rushing yards per game allowed. Things could open up more on the ground for Fournette with wide receiver Chris Godwin slated to return to action after missing the Carolina game with a concussion. The Buccaneers’ defense sacked Bridgewater five times, a strong message sent to Denver’s faulty offensive line that gave up six sacks last week.
The over is 3-0 in the Bucs’ last three games overall.
Betting on the Denver Broncos (+6)
Regular Season Record: 0-2
Denver quarterback Drew Lock will not be seeing action for at least the next two weeks after suffering a shoulder injury in last Sunday’s 26-21 road loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. That’s the price the Broncos had to pay for having an offensive line that folded like a cheap lawn chair in that game. With Lock out, the Broncos will most likely start Jeff Driskel, though, they also just recently signed former Jacksonville Jaguars starter, Blake Bortles. At this point, Driskel is more familiar with Denver’s playbook, so he’s expected to run things on the field from under center. Even worse for the Broncos is their losing of top wide receiver Courtland Sutton for the rest of the season after he suffered a serious knee injury in the Steelers game. That leaves Jerry Jeudy, Noah Fant, and KJ Hamler sharing most of the bulk of targets downfield. The key for the Broncos is to capitalize on the Bucs’ turnovers. Tampa Bay turned the ball over twice against Carolina and three times in Week 1’s loss to the New Orleans Saints.
The Broncos are 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games.
The Buccaneers blow out the Broncos, 43-15.
