Patriots-Bucs prediction roundup

October, 23, 2009

A roundup of how folks at ESPN are picking Sunday's game between the Patriots and Bucs in London. Not a single expert picked the Bucs, who are more than two-touchdown underdogs.

  •'s Mike Reiss: Patriots 31, Bucs 13. If not for the long trip, the gap would be even wider.
  •'s Chris Forsberg: Patriots 31, Bucs 3. The most underwhelming event at Wembley Stadium since the Ultimate Warrior defeated "Macho Man" Randy Savage by countout at WWF's SummerSlam 1992.
  • Hank Goldberg: Patriots in a rout.
  • NFL Live: Tedy Bruschi, Mark Schlereth and Trey Wingo all pick the Patriots.
  • Sunday Countdown: Mike Ditka, Keyshawn Johnson, Cris Carter and Tom Jackson all pick the Patriots.
  • Patriots-Bucs Madden simulation: Patriots 30, Bucs 13.
  • Bill Simmons: "TB/TEN secondaries back-to-back turn Brady into a fantasy stud again. Wouldn't it be fun if London's fans booed the 'Patriots' like crazy?"
  • ESPN experts: All 10 of those polled picked the Patriots.
