Tampa Bay did make some noise late, scoring a touchdown on a T.J. Yates interception. They managed one sack, and forced four fumbles.

The success of Tampa Bay's DST will revolve around status of Cam Newton


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2014) The amount of success the Buccaneers' defensive unit will have in Week 1 could depend on the status of Cam Newton.

At this point, Newton is expected to a be a game day decision because of an injury to his ribs. However, even if he plays, he'll likely be limited in terms of his mobility, and his offensive weapons just aren't the same compared to the previous year -- not to mention his offensive line has been atrocious in the preseason.

If Newton is fully healthy, it will be a different story. He has a 10-to-4 touchdown-to-interception ratio in six meetings against Tampa Bay, by far his best numbers against any opponent.

Fantasy DST units scored 7.53 points in Standard CBSSports.com formats last season against Carolina. Our Fantasy analysts have the Buccaneers ranked in their top-12 this week. Consider them a solid starting option for Week 1.
