There is increasing speculation that Tampa Bay (5-10) coach Dirk Koetter will not return for the 2019 season. Koetter has been all over the place regarding his starting quarterback. He benched quarterback Jameis Winston for three games this season after Winston had returned from a three-game suspension. Koetter started backup Ryan Fitzpatrick, then went back to Winston.
Winston’s future with the Buccaneers is also cloudy. Winston’s fifth-year option is $20.9 million, which is guaranteed only for injury until March 13. The Buccaneers may opt to cut or trade him before that date.
Falcons (6-9) coach Dan Quinn’s future in Atlanta is secure for at least the 2019 season after owner Arthur Blank gave Quinn a vote of confidence. However, offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian could be replaced by Darrell Bevell. The Falcons defeated the Buccaneers 34-29 in Week 6.
After two games on the road, Tampa Bay is heading back home. They will square off against Atlanta at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday. Tampa Bay stagger in eager to bring about an end to their three-game losing streak.
Tampa Bay’s holiday cheer might be a little lacking this year after getting coal in their stocking last week. They fell to Dallas 20-27. Mike Evans put forth a good effort for the losing side as he caught 6 passes for 90 yards and 1 touchdown.
