Bucs-Bears predictions

Bucs predictions

The Bucs are out of the playoff chase, but the last two games of their season still have meaning. They want to finish on a strong note, especially today, when they face coach Lovie Smith's old team. Chicago looks like a team ready for golf season. Bucs 23-16.
