Of course, any expert with half a brain is going to side with the defending champs. The Buccaneers looked good in their Week 1 win over the Cowboys and are expected to continue to roll through the season. Maybe Atlanta can squeak one by Tom Brady for the first time in his career. However, it would take a monumental turnaround from a week ago.
