No, it's not the Baltimore Ravens or the Kansas City Chiefs, the team everyone is excited about in 2020 is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Bruce Arians and Co. ditched Jameis Winston for one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history, and they are hoping that Tom Brady can get the Buccaneers to the postseason for the first time since 2007.

It's not just Brady that's heading to Tampa Bay either, as tight end Rob Gronkowski has decided to come out of retirement to help the Buccaneers as well. Can this New England Patriots dynamic duo find instant success in Tampa? Will Brady be able to establish a nice relationship with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin? If so, this Buccaneers team could be a legitimate contender in the NFC.

Below, we will break down every game on the Buccaneers' schedule this upcoming season. While they have the attention of the NFL world and five primetime games as opposed to just one, will Brady and the Bucs be able to live up to the hype?

The Buccaneers' O/U is 9.5:

Week 1, Sept 13: at New Orleans Saints 

Line: Saints -4
Opponent win total: O/U 10.5
4:25 p.m. ET on Fox

Brady enters the 2020 season having been favored in an NFL-record 74 consecutive games. It appears as though that streak will be broken come Sept. 13. The Buccaneers begin the 2020 season against the team that will be their main competition this season: Drew Brees and the Saints. The reigning NFC South champions are coming off of a 13-3 season, and Brees is returning for at least one more try at another Lombardi Trophy. While the Saints have made a habit of suffering devastating postseason losses, they have won the division three years in a row. The Saints are absolutely dominant in the regular season, and I think splitting the series in 2020 is a win for the Buccaneers. That being said, Brady the Buc loses his first game. 

Prediction: 33-27, Saints
Projected record: 0-1

Week 2, Sept. 20: vs. Carolina Panthers

Line: Buccaneers -8
Opponent win total:
O/U 5.5
1 p.m. ET on Fox

The Panthers are entering a rebuild, there's no doubt about it. While Teddy Bridgewater is a capable quarterback and Christian McCaffrey is a legitimate star, I'm not sure first-year head coach Matt Rhule is going to exactly impress in year one. This matchup is in Tampa, and it's the perfect opportunity for Brady and the Bucs to earn their first win. It could be a blowout, and I may take the Buccaneers to cover the spread no matter how large it is.

Prediction: 35-13, Buccaneers
Projected record: 1-1

Week 3, Sept. 27: at Denver Broncos

Opponent win total: O/U 7.5
4:25 p.m. ET on Fox

The Broncos are a very interesting team heading into this season. It's hard not to love what they have done this offseason concerning the offensive side of the ball, and the defense isn't too shabby either. It might take them some time to get going, however, which is why the Buccaneers should be happy they get Denver early in the season. This will be one of those matchups where having a veteran presence under center makes the difference. 

Prediction: 27-23, Buccaneers
Projected record: 2-1

Week 4, Oct. 4: vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Opponent win total: O/U 7.5
1 p.m. ET on CBS

The Chargers might be an underrated team heading into this season -- even if you don't have trust in Tyrod Taylor or Justin Herbert. Anthony Lynn's squad had to deal with plenty of injuries last season, but now everyone is healthy and aiming to make it back to the conference championship game. Those are some lofty goals, however, and the Buccaneers will score their third straight win here. I predict Brady will have his best game of the season up to this point at home against L.A.

Prediction: 30-20, Buccaneers
Projected record: 3-1

Week 5, Oct. 8: vs. Chicago Bears

Opponent win total: O/U 8
8:20 p.m. ET on Fox, NFL Network and Amazon - Thursday Night Football

This is the point in the season where the Buccaneers hype begins to build. Their first primetime game of the 2020 season comes against the Bears on a short week, and it's almost impossible to predict who will be under center for Chicago. This game won't be a blowout, but I think Tampa Bay pulls away in the second half and its defense ends up stealing the show. 

Prediction: 24-17, Buccaneers
Projected record: 4-1

Week 6, Oct. 18: vs. Green Bay Packers

Opponent win total: O/U 9
4:25 p.m. ET on Fox

Trap game! Even though the Bucs get Aaron Rodgers at home, this Packers team might surprise some people in 2020. All of the talk last preseason was about how Rodgers apparently wasn't going to get along with first-year head coach Matt LaFleur, but they finished with a 13-3 record. Now the storyline everyone is obsessed about is the Packers taking Jordan Love in the first round. This Packers team is good and will be back in the postseason. After winning four straight games, Tampa stumbles here.

Prediction: 28-22, Packers
Projected record: 4-2

Week 7, Oct. 25: at Las Vegas Raiders

Opponent win total: O/U 7.5
8:20 p.m. ET on NBC - Sunday Night Football

Even though it's on the road, the Raiders in primetime is the perfect spot for the Buccaneers to rebound. Nope. The Buccaneers play one of their worst games of the season against a young but talented Raiders team. Brady throws multiple interceptions and Jon Gruden's team escapes with a big upset win at home. 

Prediction: 27-21, Raiders
Projected record: 4-3

Week 8, Nov. 2: at New York Giants

Opponent win total: O/U 6.5
8:20 p.m. ET on NBC - Sunday Night Football

After the national media spends all week discussing if the 4-3 Buccaneers are for real or not with a road game against the Giants next up on the docket, Brady comes through in Week 8. It's not a dominant enough win to shut up the doubters, but it's a win that ends a two-game skid. This week, we see Ronald Jones and the run game as a whole step up to secure the win. This is a big victory considering the Saints are next up on the docket. 

Prediction: 30-17, Buccaneers
Projected record: 5-3

Week 9, Nov. 8: vs. New Orleans Saints

Opponent win total: O/U 10.5
8:20 p.m. ET on NBC - Sunday Night Football

The Buccaneers return home for the first time in almost a month for their third primetime game in a row. As previously mentioned, I believe the Saints and Buccaneers will split the season series. New Orleans got its win in the season opener, and now Tampa Bay gets a win here in Week 9 at home. I have a feeling this one could be a shootout. 

Prediction: 43-38, Buccaneers
Projected record: 6-3

Week 10, Nov. 15: at Carolina Panthers

Opponent win total: O/U 5.5
1 p.m. ET on Fox

The Panthers are going to have a rough year. I'm not sure if Brady is going to earn this win or if the defense will, but Tampa is going to sweep the season series against Carolina. 

Prediction: 26-3, Buccaneers
Projected record: 7-3

Week 11, Nov. 23: vs. Los Angeles Rams

Opponent win total: O/U 8.5
8:15 p.m. ET on ESPN - Monday Night Football

The Buccaneers return home after a dominant win against the Panthers to play their fifth primetime game in seven weeks. The Rams certainly aren't the team that Sean McVay led to the Super Bowl a couple of years ago, but they do have some young talent. I believe this will be a close matchup that will come down to the wire, but the Buccaneers grind out a win. Some will claim this should have been an easy game for the Bucs while others will point out the fact that they got the job done. Either way, they start out 8-3.

Prediction: 26-24, Buccaneers
Projected record: 8-3

Week 12, Nov. 29: vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Opponent win total: O/U 11.5
4:25 p.m. ET on CBS

There will be those who claim the Buccaneers are a legitimate threat to the powerhouses of the NFL, and I'm not sure we will find that out in the regular season. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs are the defending Super Bowl champions for a reason and they are going to be right back in the mix next season. The Buccaneers lose a close one at home in Week 12.

Prediction: 31-28, Chiefs
Projected record: 8-4

Week 14, Dec. 13: vs. Minnesota Vikings

Opponent win total: O/U 9
1 p.m. ET on Fox

While the Buccaneers get a long week to prepare for the Vikings at home, they are going to drop another close matchup late in the season. Kirk Cousins is going to grow more comfortable in the offense in his third season with the Vikings and Dalvin Cook is going to remain healthy. This will be yet another close game, but Brady and Co. disappoint at home in Week 13 to fall to 8-5.

Prediction: 27-17, Vikings
Projected record: 8-5

Week 15, Dec. 20: at Atlanta Falcons

Opponent win total: O/U 7.5
1 p.m. ET on Fox

Unfortunately, things go from bad to worse the following week. Tampa travels to Atlanta to take on an always-ready Falcons team that is excited to play Brady in the NFC South for the very first time. The Falcons come out aggressively in the first half and establish a lead that the Buccaneers can't come back from.

Prediction: 30-27, Falcons
Projected record: 8-6

Week 16: TBD: at Detroit Lions

Opponent win total: O/U 6.5

At this point in the season, everyone is starting to doubt if the Buccaneers are a good team or not. They are 8-6 and have just lost three straight games. Fortunately, the Lions provide a great bounce-back opportunity. Matt Patricia's squad was actually pretty underrated last year, but injuries took a massive toll on them towards the middle of the season. In general, I think things get worse before they get better in Detroit. If the Buccaneers were playing the Lions earlier in the season, maybe this game would be an interesting one to watch. But in Week 16? Tampa will finally show up again. 

Prediction: 23-10, Buccaneers
Projected record: 9-6

Week 17, Jan 3: vs. Atlanta Falcons

Opponent win total: O/U 7.5
1 p.m. ET on Fox

After a brutal loss to the Falcons a couple of weeks earlier, the Buccaneers get their revenge and close out the regular season with a win.

Prediction: 28-7, Buccaneers
Projected record: 10-6

William Hill currently has the Buccaneers' over/under win total listed at 9.5, and they barely cover with a 10-6 record. No matter what games you may or may not disagree with me on, the Buccaneers punch their ticket to the postseason as a wild card. What will happen next? That's a good question. It was only two years ago we thought Brady and the Patriots were bound for an early postseason exit when they ended up going the distance. The playoffs and the regular season are entirely different, who knows how long it will take for this team to find their potential. Hopefully they will have it figured out come "Week 18."
