While you'd normally imagine a matchup between Bruce Arians and Sean McVay to be a high-scoring affair, that isn't being anticipated in Monday night's primetime matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Los Angeles Rams.
Rather, this is expected to be a slugfest between two of the league's best defenses.
Aaron Donald, Jalen Ramsey, and the No. 1 Los Angeles team defense look to slow the roll of Tom Brady, Ronald Jones, Mike Evans and Co. that is fresh off of a 46-point, 544-yard showing against Carolina last Sunday. On the flip side, Todd Bowles' Bucs' defense will look to throw quarterback Jared Goff off tempo to control the game early on.
A balanced game featuring talented offenses and even more dominant defenses, tonight could be a preview of what's to come in the 2020-21 NFL Playoffs.
