Bengals vs Buccaneers live stream: Coaching matchup Injuries, notes & Prediction

If Tampa Bay fans thought they would be 3-3 after 6 weeks before the season started, they’d probably expect a better vibe going into Week 8. After all, the Buccaneers faced a brutal early schedule, including their first three games with a backup quarterback.

But since Ryan Fitzpatrick helped Tampa Bay roll over their first two opponents, The Buccaneers are 1-3. To get that win, they needed a 59-yard Chandler Catanzaro field goal in overtime against the 2-4-1 Browns.

Jameis Winston was their leading rusher.

Cincinnati fans can relate. Being 4-3 and just a half-game behind division-leading Pittsburgh would feel a lot better if not for the 45-10 drubbing laid on the Bengals by the Chiefs.

Kansas City scoring 45 points might not seem like a surprise, but a team with playoff aspirations has to put more than 10 points up against their defense.

Andy Dalton was being lauded for a comeback season before laying an egg in Kansas City. He hit roughly half his 29 passes for only 148 yards. The running game only mustered 65 yards.

Dalton couldn’t have felt any better after backup Jeff Driskel hit all four of his pass attempts in relief. But they’ll lick their wounds and hope to rebound against another suspect defense in Week 8.

Injuries and notes:

Tampa Bay moved linebackers Kwon Alexander and Jack Cichy to injured reserve and waived/injured cornerback Marcus Williams.

Defensive stalwarts Vinny Curry and Gerald McCoy are listed as questionable.

Dalton’s task won’t get easier with the loss of wide receiver John Ross. Ross will miss a few weeks with a groin injury. Tight end Tyler Kroft will miss another game and running back Giovani Bernard is questionable.

Backup tight end Mason Schreck (knee) was placed on the injured reserve list and center Billy Price is questionable for Week 8.

Vontaze Burfict (hip) was limited in practice but hopes to play Sunday. Fellow linebacker Nick Vigil is also listed as questionable, while cornerback Darqueze Dennard is doubtful.

Coaching matchup

Dirk Koetter’s job status didn’t get much safer with last week’s struggle against the Browns. Cleveland is much improved, but losing to them in your home stadium is still unacceptable. Koetter’s defense didn’t look too different after the firing of his coordinator last week.

Marvin Lewis needs to help his team rebound at home after last week’s crushing defeat. Tampa provides a good opportunity for the Bengals to keep the pressure on first-place Pittsburgh.

Who will win the Bengals-Buccaneers game?

Both defenses are banged up and having some issues. That should allow both Jameis Winston and Andy Dalton to put some points on the board.

But this might come down to who has the most success on the ground. Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard give a slight edge to the Bengals.

Final score: Bengals 30, Buccaneers 26
