Five keys to the game for when the Rams play the Buccaneers this weekend.

Rams vs Buccaneers Divisional Playoff

1

Stafford is playing winning football right now with the 4th Qtr last week his best football since week 3 when he dropped 343 yards, 4 TDs, and a 134 QBR on the Brady and the Bucs. He will have to do it again if the Rams are to prevail in Tampa.

In Week 3 vs the Rams Brady threw for 432 yards, 0 TDs, and a 103 QBR. Not shabby numbers at all, but zero TDs?The Bucs offense has a ton of injuries but it all rests on Brady's shoulders. Regardless of the talent around him, it always has.

Tom Brady

3

Cooper Kupp Van Jefferson Odell Beckham Jr. OBJ wasn't on the club the last time they met. He has been on fire lately and was key in the comeback win last week. The trio is a DB nightmare on acid.

Rams Receivers

4

Aaron Donald shows up as he is billed. Arguably the best player in the NFL. But Von Miller is a ton of fun with a Lombardi ring who is playing like he found the fountain of youth. You have Floyd on the other side and this crew produced a 50 burger in sacks in 2021.

Gronk and Mike Evans are the two receivers Brady can still rely on. Last week Evans had 10 targets, 9 receptions, 117 yards, and a score while Gronk had 6 targets, 5 receptions, 31 yards, and a score. These are the guys.

Aaron Donald is the star of the team but Jalen Ramsey is no slouch. He will almost assuredly be shadowing the Bucs WR1 all day. You don't hear Mike Evans' name, and Ramsey gets his pick, the Rams probably win.

Vita Vea, Ndamukong Suh, William Gholston, and Jason Peirre-Paul are a savvy, veteran handful where any one of them can and do make splash plays on a recurring basis.

Bonus

After avoiding it last season the Buccaneers have been hammered with key injuries lately. Finding out if LT Tristan Wirfs can return will be key but the list is long and the club needs help. Will Leonard Fournette return this week?
