The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are set to take on the Atlanta Falcons in a Week 13 division rival match-up. Buccaneers-Falcons both play in the NFC South and are both the one and two seeds of the division. Tampa Bay currently has a three-game lead over the Falcons. They will look to push that to four games on Sunday. In this post, we’ll be making our Buccaneers Week 13 predictions.

It’s the second time that these two teams will face off. The Buccaneers walked away with a commanding 48-25 win against the Falcons in Week 2. Tom Brady went 24-36 with 276 yards and five touchdowns in their first matchup. Mike Evans was also able to get into the end zone twice on five receptions for 75 yards.

For more insight on the Buccaneers’ Week 13 matchup against the Falcons, listen below:

Expect nothing to change this week when they face off for the second time as the Buccaneers are a much more talented team than the Falcons. Atlanta was recently on a two-game losing streak before snapping it by beating the Jacksonville Jaguars 21-14 in Week 12.

Tampa Bay hasn’t exactly played great football recently as they also were on a two-game losing skid before beating the New York Giants in Week 11, 30-10, and then beating the Indianapolis Colts, 38-31, in a tough Week 12 contest.

Tom Brady and the Buccaneers are going to look to go up for games in the NFC South with a commanding win over the Falcons. Let’s take a look at our Buccaneers Week 13 predictions.

Buccaneers Week 13 Predictions

4. Tom Brady throws for over 300 yards with four touchdowns

There’s a reason why he’s the greatest quarterback that has ever played the game. Being three games ahead of the Falcons isn’t exactly a close playoff race, but it’s too close for Tom Brady’s liking. All he has done throughout his career is perform and perform on the highest levels during the toughest events. Expect no different this week as he wants to take a four-game lead against the Falcons and pretty much wrap up his team’s AFC South divisional championship.

He already has over 3,400 yards this season with 30 touchdowns. He’s going to add three to four hundred more yards to his total on Sunday.

The Falcons have a below-average defense who has given up points to quarterbacks much worse than Brady this season. What he did against them the first time, is going to be the exact same thing that he does the second time around. This time he’s going to have more yards but possibly fewer touchdowns.

Brady is going to come out of this one and throw four touchdowns in an easy win for his Buccaneers team.

3. Buccaneers get a shutout

This is the perfect week to do so for a team that has somewhat struggled on defense in certain weeks. Last week they gave up 31 points to the Indianapolis Colts and allowed Carson Wentz to throw for over 300 yards. The Buccaneers realize that if they want to win the Super Bowl, they have to defend at the highest of levels.

Expect them to come out in this one being aggressive on defense and rush an older Matt Ryan all game. They’re going to finish with four or more sacks and Matt Ryan is not going to have more than 150 yards. He will also throw two interceptions.

The Falcons don’t have a great run game either, and that is one thing that the Buccaneers do at a high level. They have arguably the best-run defense in all of the NFL. It’s going to be an extremely tough game for the Falcons to put points up on the board. The Buccaneers are going to get a shutout.

This will give the team plenty of confidence going into the back end of the season and will help them continue defending at a high level.

2. Leonard Fournette rushes for over 100 yards

The Buccaneers offense is going to be clicking on all cylinders. In Week 12, Leonard Fournette had 100 yards and three touchdowns. He did this against a defense that is much better than the Falcons’ defense.

Expect him to do the same thing this week as he has shown throughout the season that he is forming into being one of the best running backs in the NFL. He had plenty of hype coming into his NFL career and he’s finally showing the world that he is as good as advertised.

1. Buccaneers score 40-plus points in an easy victory

This game isn’t going to be close as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going to score more than 40 points. There’s not going to be any point in the game where this is relatively close as the Buccaneers will even be able to sit their starters in the fourth quarter. This is going to be an easy win for Tom Brady and the Buccaneers and they will be four games ahead of the Falcons and secure the AFC South.
