Week Sixteen Analysis: Sam Bradford is coming off his best statistical game of his career, and now faces one of the worst secondaries in the history of the NFL. Granted it took him 55 attempts, but Bradford blew up for 377 yards and three scores as he battled back from behind against Minnesota. Tampa was similarly obliterated by Drew Brees last week, but that's pretty much every week for the Bucs secondary. Tampa allows the most passing yards, 322 per game. They've allowed the most passing touchdowns, 27. Six times, they've allowed three or more passing touchdowns, so there's explosive upside for Bradford, especially with Danny Amendola back.
Week Sixteen Add: Sam Bradford threw for a career-high 377 yards and matched a career-high three touchdown passes in catch-up mode against the Vikings last week. After the 2010 season, everyone was sweet on Bradford as the next breakout stud quarterback. Bradford is on pace for a personal best in yardage and has tied his touchdown total from his rookie year. He's going to set both records this weekend in Tampa Bay. The Bucs are on the verge of being the worst pass defense in league history and they just gave up 307 yards and four touchdowns to Drew Brees last week. He's a great pickup-and-start candidate.
