ESPN predicts which team will win the NFC South crown – Tampa Bay Buccaneers News

Expectations are at an all time high for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this season. After improving immensely and finishing 9-7 last season, the Bucs still unfortunately came up short in the tight race to the playoffs and ended the season incredibly disappointed. Therefore, the Bucs spent the entire offseason loading the roster up with talented weapons on both sides of the ball and are now poised to have one of the best offenses in the NFL after the franchise added several studs to the depth chart like DeSean Jackson, Chris Godwin and of course O.J. Howard.

As a result, ESPN’s Jenna Laine is predicting that the Buccaneers will snatch the NFC South crown this season. Laine provided the following reasons why:

The Buccaneers came awfully close to clinching first place in the division last season but the Falcons were the team that came out on top. However, now that the Buccaneers have acquired numerous weapons through free agency and the draft, competition between the Falcons and Bucs is only expected to continue brewing and the Buccaneers have a very solid chance of being crowned the division champs and finally punching a ticket to the playoffs after missing out in the post season for the last decade. The Bucs are strolling into the year with a new mentality, look and a fresh roster, so Bucs Nation should expect nothing less than a long awaited playoff appearance in 2017.
