NFL: Cleveland Browns vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Preview

September 10, 2010

The Cleveland Browns will take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to start off the 2010 NFL season on Sunday. Truth be told, these teams are not nearly towards the top of the NFC. This game will feature two of the teams that are expected to finish towards

the bottom of the league.

The good news for these two struggling organizations is that one of them will get to start off the season with a win. A win could go a long ways towards giving one of these teams the momentum that they need to improve upon their seasons last year.

The Browns have a very apparent problem with their team: They are starting Jake Delhomme. Delhomme was the quarterback for the Panthers for years and did not finish well. He really struggled towards the end of his tenure in Carolina and showed no signs of bouncing back. If the Browns are relying on him to win games they will be in for a long season.

It seems like the Bucs have been mired in mediocrity for years now. They have a young quarterback at the helm now that may be able to rescue them out in time. Unfortunately it does not look like he is ready to carry the team to the playoffs just yet. The Bucs will need a miracle to take place if they are to have any chance at making a playoff run in 2010.

This game will be an important one for each team and for the NFL betting odds too as they may not have many more chances at victory for the rest of the season.
