Monday Night Football: Buccaneers at Rams


7 p.m., Ch. 4

The skinny: You would think going to Brian Griese at quarterback would be the ultimate ignominy for Tampa Bay. But it was Griese who produced the Bucs' first victory of the year, completing 16 of 19 passes for 194 yards and a touchdown against New Orleans. The Bucs, though, will need more than that against St. Louis, a team suddenly revitalized. With one 17-point, fourth-quarter comeback against Seattle, the Rams established themselves as a team still capable of scaring the beejabbers out of opposing defenses. What's more, they served notice to the Seahawks they intend to defend their NFC West title. Unless, of course, they go belly-up against the Bucs.

Prediction: Rams, 31-21
