  1. Revisiting my 2014 predictions

    Pat Yasinskas

    TAMPA, Fla. - Back at the start of the season, all the NFL Nation reporters did predictions. Now that the Super Bowl is over, let's go back and take a look at how my predictions held up. The good: I came within one team of nailing the AFC playoff ...

  2. Prediction: Saints will beat Buccaneers

    Pat Yasinskas

    Despite New Orleans' record, the Saints still have the No. 1 overall offense in the league. I just can't see the Bucs hanging with Drew Brees. Although Tampa Bay's defense (No. 26 overall) has played well during the second half of the season, it h...

  3. Prediction: Packers will beat Buccaneers

    Pat Yasinskas

    The Buccaneers are headed for territory they haven't been in for a long time. At 2-12, they have a chance to finish with two or fewer wins for the first time since 1986 (the year they drafted Bo Jackson and he decided not to play football). The Bu...

  4. Prediction: Panthers will beat Buccaneers

    Pat Yasinskas

    It doesn't matter if Derek Anderson is starting at quarterback for Carolina in place of Cam Newton. The Panthers already have won against the Bucs with Anderson early in the season. Carolina also has plenty of incentive. As hard as it may be to be...

  5. Prediction: Lions will beat Buccaneers

    Pat Yasinskas

    In a similar set of circumstances last year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers went up to Detroit and came away with an upset victory. That helped lead to a tailspin by Detroit. But that's not going to happen again. This time around, the Lions are too good...

  6. Prediction: Bengals will beat Buccaneers

    Pat Yasinskas

    Although they've been doing everything possible to knock themselves out of the NFC South race, the Bucs somehow are still in it. But that's only because the rest of the NFC South is so bad. I don't see the Bucs gaining any ground this week. They'r...

  7. Prediction: Buccaneers will beat Bears

    Pat Yasinskas

    I'm going to say the Buccaneers go on a roll. Everything is relative, but a two-game winning streak would qualify as a roll for the Bucs. Coach Lovie Smith has said all along that once things started clicking, the team would win regularly. Things ...

  8. Prediction: Redskins will beat Buccaneers

    Pat Yasinskas

    The records suggest there isn't that much difference between Tampa Bay and Washington. The Bucs are off to a 1-8 start and the Redskins are only slightly better at 3-6. But records don't come close to telling the whole story. There are other numbe...

  9. Prediction: Falcons will beat Buccaneers

    Pat Yasinskas

    The Atlanta Falcons aren't the same team they were when they blew the Tampa Bay Buccaneers out of the Georgia Dome in Week 3. They haven't won since and this is a good opportunity for the Bucs to get a win. But I have a hard time picking a team th...

  10. Revised prediction: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    Pat Yasinskas

    Buccaneers reporter Pat Yasinskas revises his prediction at the midway point of the season: Preseason prediction: 8-8 Revised prediction: 4-12 Why the Buccaneers will finish worse: I admit I bought into the hype the Bucs were selling about w...

  11. Prediction: Browns will beat Buccaneers

    Pat Yasinskas

    I've picked the Bucs to win each of the past two games. That didn't work out so well, so I'm not going to make the same mistake three times in a row. This is more than gut instinct. I'm looking at the numbers and they're not pretty. The Bucs rank ...

  12. Prediction: Buccaneers will beat Vikings

    Pat Yasinskas

    My first inclination is to not pick the Bucs to win against the Vikings. That's because it's hard to buy into a team that's 1-5 and has suffered humiliating defeats to Atlanta and Baltimore. But I'm going to go against my gut and pick the Bucs. Th...

  13. Prediction: Buccaneers will beat Ravens

    Pat Yasinskas

    The numbers and common sense say I should pick the Ravens. That would be the easy thing to do. But I'm not taking the easy way out this time. The Bucs have played well in their last two games and those were on the road. They're home this time and ...

  14. Prediction: Saints will beat Buccaneers

    Pat Yasinskas

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers showed they're capable of winning with a victory against Pittsburgh. And they showed they can win in a hostile atmosphere. But atmospheres don't come much more hostile than the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. It's as loud as any ...

  15. Prediction: Steelers will beat Buccaneers

    Pat Yasinskas

    Let's start this off by looking at the facts. The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off an impressive victory over Carolina, a team that beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the season opener. Tampa Bay is coming off an embarrassing loss to Atlanta. The ...

  16. Prediction: Falcons will beat Bucs

    Pat Yasinskas

    Part of me would like to go against the grain and pick the Buccaneers to win Sunday because I don't think they're as bad as they've looked in their first two games. I think a better performance is on the horizon, even though the Bucs have some key in...
