Thursday Night Football Open Thread: Buccaneers vs. Falcons

Cliff McBride

Through two weeks, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have fallen short of expectations. On paper, things look good -- a new coach in Lovie Smith, and a quarterback (Josh McCown) who thrived with two big targets in Chicago last year and now has two big targets with the Bucs.

Instead, after throwing one interception in 8 games last year, he's thrown 3 through two games. The Falcons' run defense has been terrible after two weeks, and Tampa Bay's defense is still pretty stout. I'll go with the Buccaneers to pull off the upset. Buccaneers 24, Falcons 20.

Cleveland Browns fans should use this thread to discuss the games as they unfold.
