Tip Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Los Angeles Rams
The LA Rams hit the road for a week 11 clash with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hoping to keep tabs on their NFC West rivals the Seattle Seahawks. As for the Bucs they too are playing catch-up in the NFC South, trailing the New Orleans Saints after a humbling 38-3 defat to the Saints two weeks ago.
The Monday Night football brings us to the Raymond James Stadium with Tom Brady and company hoping to build on a 43-26 win over the Carolina Panthers in week 10. Two of the Bucs three losses have come at the hands of their divisional rivals and they have won three of their four home games so far this season, losing only to the Saints. Wins at home over the LA Chargers, the Carolina Panthers and most impressively the Green Bay Packers will encourage Tampa as they come into this game. The Bucs also showed a new dimension to their offence as they began to run the ball in week 10 rushing for 210 yards and two touchdowns on their way to victory. Antonio Brown and Mike Evans were useful outlets while Ronald Jones rushed with 23 carries over 192 yards.
The LA Rams beat their division rivals the Seattle Seahawks last weekend but with the Hawks winning in the Thursday night game earlier this week they have restored their advantage in the NFC West with a 7-3 record. LA have lost two of their last four games and both defeats came on the road at the Miami Dolphins and the San Francisco 49ers. They have lost three of their last four games on the road and their only wins outside of Los Angeles came at the 2-7 Washington Football team and in Philadelphia against the 3-5 Eagles.

Conclusion Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Los Angeles Rams
Tom Brady has struggled against the stifling defences of the Chicago Bears and the Saints and with the LA Rams boasting one of the best defences in the league I think they can at least keep Tampa at arm's length by keeping the game low scoring. Back under 48.5 points here.
