Tom Brady and the Buccaneers will take on Justin Herbert and the Chargers.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is in charge of a team that is favored to win the NFC South, and he’ll look to move his new team to 3-1 in career start No. 287. On the other end of the spectrum, Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert will be making career start No. 3 as he tries to win his first game as the signal-caller for the 1-2 Chargers.
What to watch for in Buccaneers vs Chargers
Both Tampa Bay and Los Angeles will go into this game without some of the best players on their respective rosters. Chris Godwin, who has quickly become Brady’s favorite target in Tampa, will be out for a few weeks. Mike Evans, who had just two yards receiving last week, will need to pick up the slack, as will the likes of Scotty Miller and tight end Rob Gronkowski.
While one would think the Chargers would be overjoyed with the prospect of playing against Tampa’s high-octane offense without Godwin, they themselves have been bitten by the injury bug, as stud slot cornerback Chris Harris is expected to miss a good chunk of the season. While he has been on the outs with the organization for a while, Desmond King will need to step in and replace him.
A win for Tampa would put some distance between them and the New Orleans Saints, while a win for the Chargers would allow them to keep pace with the rest of the Joneses in the ultra-competitive AFC West.
