Week 16: vs Green Bay Packers

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Josh McCown threw 13/28 for 154 yards passing, one TD and one interception at Carolina last week, after tossing 20/39 for 250 yards, two TDs and two interceptions at Detroit two weeks ago. He's been sacked nine times for -61 yards over the past two weeks, a rate that is heavier than usual for Tampa this year (Tampa has allowed 42 sacks over 14 games played so far). All three of his passing scores have landed in Mike Evans' arms (19 targets for 6/58/3 receiving during the last two weeks), while Vincent Jackson (27 targets for 16/229/0 receiving) has been much more efficient in his chances, but is failing to score TDs much this year (only two TDs this year, and none since Week 4). The Packers' pass D is ranked 15th in the NFL averaging 237.7 net passing yards allowed per game, with 23 passing scores given out vs. 17 interceptions (tied for fifth in the NFL) and 32 sacks (tied for 19th) generated. Kyle Orton could only manage 14/27 for 140 net yards, zero TDs and one interception thrown last week, though (three sacks taken for -18 yards), while Matt Ryan and Julio Jones went off on this secondary two games ago (24/39 for 374 net yards passing, four TDs and one interception thrown, with one sack taken for -1 yards). Tampa's passing attack is consistently mediocre, while the Packers bounce from sub-par to solid - on balance, this looks like a neutral matchup to us.
