The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-5) snapped their winning streak in epic fashion last weekend as the team overcame a 7-point deficit in the fourth quarter courtesy of Tom Brady's touchdown pass to Cade Otton with less than 10 seconds remaining. The Buccaneers have a chance to earn another big against the Seattle Seahawks (6-3) abroad in Munich, Germany. This is a matchup of two teams who are leading their respective divisions at this point of the season.
It's only week 10 but this contest could have big ramifications on Tampa Bay's playoff seeding when the postseason arrives. The Seahawks haven't missed a beat despite dealing star quarterback Russell Wilson over the offseason. Quarterback Geno Smith and breakout rookie running back, Kenneth Walker, have found a rhythm offensively while the pass-rush is one of the best in the league. Smith has compiled a 15-4 TD/INT ratio and Walker has scored at least one touchdown in five straight games.
