Before we get to what the experts think about Sunday's matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Seattle Seahawks, take a quick look at SB Nation's latest power rankings. The Seahawks are ranked as the No. 2 team in the NFL, behind only the Denver Broncos. The Bucs are 31st, ahead of the Jacksonville Jaguars and no one else. In Seattle, Sunday's game has the makings of a Seahawks romp.
And that's pretty much what the experts believe. There are 32 panel members across ESPN Yahoo!, CBS and SB Nation, and everyone has picked the Seahawks to win. The Bucs are a mess right now, with Greg Schiano's seat burning hot and rookie quarterback Mike Glennon struggling behind center in place of the released Josh Freeman. Even a shaky Monday night performance against the St. Louis Rams won't shake experts' confidence in the Seahawks.
The Seahawks are currently 17.5-point favorites in the matchup, and against the spread half of CBS' eight-man panel did give the Bucs a nod. Beating the spread would be little consolation to fans tired of losing, however. Hopefully they're numb by now, because next week will likely be rough if not.
