Tampa Bay @ Los Angeles

Current Records: Tampa Bay 2-0; Los Angeles 2-0

What to Know

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will square off against the Los Angeles Rams at 4:25 p.m. ET Sunday at SoFi Stadium. Both teams come into the contest bolstered by wins in their previous games.

Everything went the Buccaneers' way against the Atlanta Falcons last week as they made off with a 48-25 win. Tampa Bay QB Tom Brady was slinging it as he passed for five TDs and 276 yards on 36 attempts.

Meanwhile, things were close when Los Angeles and the Indianapolis Colts clashed last week, but Los Angeles ultimately edged out the opposition 27-24. Los Angeles' WR Cooper Kupp looked sharp as he caught nine passes for two TDs and 163 yards.

This next matchup is expected to be close, with Tampa Bay going off at just a 1.5-point favorite. They covered a 12.5-point spread last week, so bettors might be thinking that will translate to further success against a lower spread.

It was close but no cigar for Tampa Bay as they fell 27-24 to the Rams when the two teams previously met in November of last year. Can the Buccaneers avenge their loss, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll soon find out.
