- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-5) are 2.5-point favorites over the Seattle Seahawks (6-3) in the NFL’s debut in Germany.
- Tom Brady became the first quarterback to reach 100,000 passing yards in a comeback victory over the Rams on Sunday.
- The Munich Game kicks off from Allianz Arena on Sunday, November 13 at 9:30 am ET
Tom Brady orchestrated a six-play, 60-yard touchdown drive in only 35 seconds to defeat the Rams 16-13 on Sunday and snap a three-game losing skid. Despite still being under .500, the Buccaneers are on top of the NFC South as they head to Germany to face the NFC West-leading Seattle Seahawks.

Does Brady have his mojo back?
“That was fuckin’ awesome,” exclaimed Tom Brady after leading his 55th career game-winning drive (most in NFL history) against Los Angeles on Sunday. It’s unclear, however, whether the 16-13 win is just momentary relief for the 45-year-old divorcee or a true turning point in the Buccaneers season.
After all, the seven-time Super Bowl winner was held without a touchdown before Tampa’s final possession, presiding over five three-and-outs and a turnover on downs.

Seahawks keep rolling
Seattle is on a four-game winning streak after defeating the divisional-rival Cardinals for the second time this season. Rebounding from a pick-six, Geno Smith threw for 275 yards and two touchdowns in the 31-21 win. And rookie Kenneth Walker piled up 109 yards and two scores on the ground.
The Offensive Rookie of the Year favorite should find holes against a Tampa Bay defense that ranks 10th worst against the run, permitting 125.2 yards per game.
Buccaneers vs. Seahawks
Tampa Bay is favored by 2.5 points in Munich, with the game’s over/under set at 44.5. The Seahawks have the league’s fourth-highest-scoring offense, averaging 31.7 points over the past three contests. However, Byron Leftwich’s offense is averaging only 18 points per game – eighth-worst in the NFL.
Pete Carroll’s young, opportunistic defense is also heating up after being gashed on the ground early in the season. During their four-game win streak, Seattle has kept each opponent under 300 total yards and forced seven turnovers.

On Sunday, Brady became the first quarterback to pass for 100,000 yards in his career. But, he wasn’t getting much help from a receiving corps that dropped six passes. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin could continue to struggle against first-year corner Coby Bryant and Defensive Rookie of the Year contender Tariq Woolen.
If that’s the case, the Bucs must do better running the ball than they did in Week 9. Led by rookie Rachaad White and Leonard Fournette, Tampa averaged just 2.5 yards per carry on 20 runs.
It’s not often that a 6-3 team is a 2.5-point underdog to a 4-5 club, but here we are. In the NFL’s first-ever game in Germany, we’re putting our money on Geno in Munich. Take the NFC-West leading Seahawks straight up at +135 and pair it with the UNDER.
Final Score Prediction: Seattle 23, Buccaneers 17
