Gameday Tampa Bay

October 27th, 2022

Game 8

Crows (4-3) at Bucs (3-4)

Kickoff: 8:15 p.m.

TV: Amazon, (WTVT-TV Channel 13 locally).

Streaming: Amazon.

Radio: Buccaneers Radio Network WXTB-FM 97.9 in the Tampa-St. Petersburg region (Transmisiones de radio en español en WTMP-FM 96.1 y WMGG-AM 1470 en Tampa). Additional stations throughout Florida on the Buccaneers Radio Network can be found here. The game also will be broadcast on SiriusXM Channel 225(Buccaneers Radio Network broadcast feed). Westwood One national feed can also be heard on SiriusXM NFL Radio Channel 88.

Weather: Tailgaters can enjoy the mid-to-low-80s this afternoon and into the early moments of the evening under partly cloudy skies, per By kickoff, look for the temperature to be 77. This will slowly drop as the game continues and by game’s end look for the temperature to be 74.

Odds: Per BetMGM, as of noon today, Bucs -2; over/under 46.

Referees: Flag-happy Carl Cheffers and his gang will work tonight’s game. Annually, per Sharp Football Analysis, Cheffers and his crew are in the top-five in most penalties called. Cheffers and his outfit love offensive holding and defensive pass interference calls, always the most annoying for fans. These guys last year led the NFL in offensive pass interference calls. And, Cheffers and his gang last year threw more flags on unnecessary roughness than any other referee crew. Someone must have told Cheffers that the networks pay big money to see his grille on TV.

Injuries: Crows Out: DT Calais Campbell (sickness). Questionable: TE Mark Andrews (foot), WR Rashod Bateman (knee), LB Josh Bynes (quad), RB Josh Bynes (knee), CB Marlon Humphrey (hamstring), CB (Marcus Peters (quad), T Ronnie Stanley (ankle), CB Brandon Stephens (oblique). Bucs — Out: TE Cam Brate (neck), CB Carlton Davis (hip), WR Russell Gage (hamstring), LG Luke Goedeke (foot), DT Akiem Hicks (foot), CB Sean Murphy-Bunting (quad), S Antoine Winfield (concussion). Questionable: WR Julio Jones (knee). 

Outlook: Joe has no idea how the Bucs will pull this out, despite the Bucs being favored by our friends in the desert giving two points to the Crows. Baltimore is a smashmouth football team and the Bucs last week proved vulnerable against the run. And despite the fact Crows’ corners Marcus Peters and Marlon Humphrey both ended up on the injury report, aBucs offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich probably won’t test them given the stunt he pulled in Pittsburgh two weeks ago. If fans don’t go mental tonight and boo Leftwich loudly if he calls Playoff Lenny up the gut on the first play of the game, then that tells Joe that Bucs fans are content with Leftwich’s nonsense. Oh, the Bucs have weapons to win, but do you trust Leftwich to use them? Joe is guessing turnovers will help. The Bucs haven’t forced a turnover since Sean Murphy-Bunting picked off a Pat Mahomes pass in the fourth quarter nearly a month ago, Oct. 2. Tonight is the fourth game the Bucs have played since losing to the Chiefs.

Fun facts: The Bucs are on pace for the lowest number of rushing yards per game in 52 years, the worst since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970. They currently average 64,4 yards a game.

    ON any given Thursday. Got a
    ribeye ready for the grill and radio tuned up. Anything can happen. I am ready for some football and JBF commentary!

  2. D-Rok Says:

    Campbell is out? Excellent. I’m a tad concerned about the trio of Campbell, Houston, and JPP on their D-Line.

    If the last 7 weeks have shown us anything, it’s that the interior of our O-Line is quite susceptible to strong interior pressure.

    Now I know for sure the Bucs will win! (Sarcasm!) Campbell being out shirley helps us, because I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.

    GO BUCS!!! Make us all proud and win tonight and turn this thing around.

    ok don’t even trust my own words right now…lol…

    i’m just thinking they muster up enough pride tonight in front of a national audience to “defend this house”…

    yeah i’m a homer and i’m picking my bucs…i will not jump off the sinking titanic 🙂

    Breaking -> “Report: Gisele Bündchen Tells Tom Brady to Leave Football or ‘She is Gone for Good’”

  5. kyle Says:

    I always loved traveling through Maryland/DC.. There are some beautiful women up there!! haha

    Go Bucs!

  6. Mike Johnson Says:

    Gage ,Randolph, Hicks, Julio down by the schoolyard, Perryman and Darden. Where are these Houdini’s? I got no problem with Buc fans blaming the coaching in part. But lets throw Jason Licht to the wolves also. Why is it I am getting this feeling this game could be ugly tonight without our secondary healthy? Good Luck. GO BUCS!

  7. Marine Buc Says:

    Bcus can’t run the ball. Bucs can’t stop the run…

    Bucs are one of the worst rushing teams in the NFL.

    Ravens are top 5 in the NFL at rushing the football…

    Ravens – 28
    Bucs – 13

    If your a gambler – pick the Ravens minus the 1.5….

    Easy Money.

  8. SB~LV Says:

    Watch for the TE I was hoping the Bucs draft Isaiah Likley

  9. Oh no here we suck again Says:

    TBB either rise up or get humiliated tonight.hoping they figure this out and win but doubtful. Go Bucs!

  10. DBS Says:

    I will check back later. Just to see Munch and others say WTF was that. Well there’s another GD run up the gut on 1st down. Every DC coordinator knows what is coming.

  11. ClwJB Says:

    No run game, no turnovers, can’t stop 4th string QB, can’t cover or tackle with the game on the line

    It all gets miraculously corrected tonight and we cruise to victory!!!

    Or maybe Lamar coughs it up a couple times and we steal an ugly win


  12. Marine Buc Says:


    Ravens + 2?


    Lock pick of the season.

    Easy money…

  13. SB~LV Says:

    Almost my bedtime

  14. Redeemer Says:

    This will be my first time watching on Amazon. I hate the fact you can’t channel surf. I think it’s available in market on broadcast. I’m taking the bucs tonight. Maybe I’m crazy, but I think they can pull this off.

  15. Pickgrin Says:

    Bucs will win.

    Season turns on this game – and it will be the start of a talented Buccaneers team playing much closer to its potential – something we haven’t seen since the Dallas game….

  16. AbucAway Says:

    I think Brady will play with a bit more fire in his belly due to Lamar Jackson being on the field. Not sure it’ll do the BUCS much good with the OC we have but it’ll be interesting if they can make a few big plays.

  17. SOGGY Says:

    I really do not what to expect, Who knows with this team this year but we are about to find out.. oh yah..

  18. PassingThru Says:

    I find myself in agreement with Marine Buc. Despite this early juncture in the season, it looks like a “must win” game and yet Baltimore is a terrible match-up with this Bucs team.

  19. Winny Testaverde Says:

    JBF welcomes beano…not to be confused with the pill taken to curb sharting. beano…previously a “beat” reporter for Teen People…brings hard hitting news and Kyle Trask commentary to the table. Welcome beano!

  20. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    The Ravens run a lot, and they hold a lot too. This group of officials love to call holding penalties, so maybe we get a few breaks tonight.
    But, in case things get ugly, I am prepared. I have 12 fresh Bromosa’s in the cooler, just in case.
    I have not grilled a Ribeye in quite awhile, but I am doing so this evening.
    The Bucs have been undefeated, every time I have grilled a Ribeye!
    Go Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. MadMax Says:

    Well, im wearing my dumpster fire best to the bar tonight. Theyve got a 26 foot screen tv called the wall…its a nice outside area where many can sit and they even have a fire pit and heat. I love this place…i can walk there in 50 seconds…so yeah, im gonna get inebriated and watch my uccaneers.

    Go ucs!

  22. PassingThru Says:

    Beano used to cover Justin Beaver and Kyle Trashk for Sickteen magazine.

  23. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Beano’s wife has a poster of Brady on the mirror above their water bed, I guess I can understand his dislike of Brady.

  24. Ash Says:

    Go bucs turn it around men. Lfg!!!!

  25. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    We wait patiently

  26. firethecannons Says:
