Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-7)

The Bucs are in second place in the NFC South behind the undefeated Carolina Panthers (13-0).  They are in the hunt for a wildcard spot thanks to the complete dumpster fire known as the NFC East.  Can rookie quarterback Jameis Winston guide them to a win tonight to keep their post-season hopes alive?

St. Louis Rams (5-8)

This team is loaded with young talent, but still can't seem to pull it together this year.  They have an emberrassment of riches at running back since they already had Tre Mason on the roster but chose to add rookie running back Todd Gurley in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft.  Their defense is anchored by DT Aaron Donald, the 2014 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.  There won't be any playoffs for the Rams, but they can at least make a strong finish to 2015 starting with a win tonight.
