XANDAMERE’S SHOWDOWN SLANT ::

Week 5 begins with the Bucs visiting the Bears in a game with a 44.5 total and Tampa Bay favored by 5.5. This should be a relatively slow-paced, defensive slog. We now have relevant DVOA information for the season, and the Bucs are the 2nd best defense by DVOA with the Bears the 7th best. 

We’ll start with the home team. With Tarik Cohen gone for the season, David Montgomery was the undisputed bell cow of the backfield, playing 85% of the snaps. He has a nightmarish matchup on the ground . . .
