St. Louis Rams vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Preview and Predictions

Michael Schottey@SchotteyNFL National Lead WriterDecember 17, 2012

Two of the NFL's most hard-nosed coaches face off in Week 16 as Jeff Fisher and the St. Louis Rams head to Tampa Bay to take on Greg Schiano and the Buccaneers.

The Rams (6-7-1) have been better than expected in Fisher's first year with the team and sent shockwaves through the NFL by taking the San Francisco 49ers to overtime twice (tying them once and beating them the second time). While the Rams have plenty of work to do heading into 2013 and beyond, Fisher's defense has given them a big head start.

The Buccaneers (6-8) have transitioned well to life under Schiano. Yet, as losers of four straight, there is clearly much to be done before the Bucs are a complete team as well. Still, there's plenty to love about a team that had so much success acquiring talent in the offseason and has such a capable stable of quality young players.

So, which of these teams wins in Week 16? Josh Zerkle, Evan Adrian and I give you our thoughts in the video above. Leave us yours in the comments below.
