Tom Brady, Bucs visit Rams in battle of unbeatens

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could be without dynamic receiver Antonio Brown when they face the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium on Sunday in a rematch from last season.

The Rams (2-0) defeated the Buccaneers 27-24 in Tampa Bay last year, Sean McVay’s first win against Tom Brady as a head coach.

However, the Brady-led Bucs went on to win the Super Bowl while the Rams lost on the road to the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round of the playoffs.

The Bucs (2-0) placed Brown on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday, making it likely he will miss Sunday’s game in L.A.

Brown is the third Tampa Bay player placed on the COVID list this week, joining linebacker Kevin Minter and practice squad receiver Travis Jonsen.

Because he’s vaccinated, Brown is eligible to return to the active roster with two negative COVID-19 tests, 24 hours apart, as long as he’s asymptomatic.

Edge rusher Jason Pierre-Paul (hand/shoulder) and kick returner Jaydon Mickens (abdomen) did not practice on Wednesday for the Bucs.

With Brown and Mickens possibly unavailable, Tampa Bay rookie Jaelon Darden could get some meaningful snaps on Sunday.

For the Rams, edge rusher Leonard Floyd (ankle) and running back Darrell Henderson Jr. (ribs) did not practice on Wednesday.

Also, McVay missed practice with a stomach bug.

According to the team, McVay tested negative for COVID-19.

The Rams lead the all-time series 17-9 (including playoffs) and have won six of the past seven games. However, situs rajawaliqq the Bucs won the last game played in L.A., taking home a 55-40 victory on Sept.

29, 2019 — a game in which quarterback Jared Goff threw for 517 yards but turned it over four times.

Goff, of course, is no longer on the roster after a trade to the Detroit Lions during the offseason. His replacement, Matthew Stafford has completed nearly 70 percent of his passes for 599 yards, with five touchdowns and just one interception.

“They’re probably pushing it down the field a bit more,” Tampa Bay coach Bruce Arians said, when asked about the difference in L.A.’s offense with Stafford under center.

“The rest of it looks just like Sean’s offense. There’s some balls that go way down the field with his arm off play-action that we have to be ready for.”

Brady has completed 65.1 percent of his passes for 655 passing yards, with nine touchdowns and just two interceptions through two games.

The Bucs average a league-leading 39.5 points a contest.

Brady last played a game in Los Angeles during the 1998 Rose Bowl as a backup quarterback for the University of Michigan.

“I’m scared to death,” joked Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris when asked about going up against Brady.

“No, Tom is the ultimate competitor. He’s one of those quarterbacks where you can say what you want to say but you know he’s coming, when he’s on the opposing team.”

The game also features two of the top defensive players in the NFL in Los Angeles defensive lineman Aaron Donald and Tampa Bay linebacker Lavonte David.

Donald is 1 ½ sacks away from surpassing Leonard Little’s 87.5 sacks and becoming the team’s official all-time sacks leader.

Through 112 games, Aaron Donald currently has 86.5 sacks.

Since the start of the 2014 season, Donald leads the league in tackles for loss, notching 133, including 14 tackles for loss during the 2020 regular season.

The All-Pro David has 59 tackles (8.4 per game) and 11 tackles for loss in seven career games against the Rams.

Seeking 12th win in row, Cards' Adam Wainwright battles Brewers

The St. Louis Cardinals will turn to veteran right-hander Adam Wainwright as they look to extend their winning streak and continue their playoff push by completing a four-game road sweep of the division-leading Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday afternoon.

Wainwright (16-7, 2.89 ERA) will be opposed by right-hander Adrian Houser (9-6, 3.43), who has won both starts this season against St.

Louis without allowing an earned run in 14 innings.

The Cardinals pounded out 15 hits to push their winning streak to a season-high 11 games with a 10-2 victory over the Brewers on Wednesday night.

St. Louis is 4 1/2 games ahead of Cincinnati and Philadelphia for the second NL wild card.

The Cardinals moved within 8 1/2 games of NL Central Division-leading Milwaukee, rajawaliqq link alternatif which has secured a playoff spot.

“I think this team shows up ready to play, to get out there the next day, or grow from the previous day,” Cardinals manager Mike Schildt said.

“We grew from today. We’ll get after it tomorrow. Wayno will be out there and we’ll be ready to go.”

St. Louis jumped on Brett Anderson, activated off the injured list earlier in the day, for six runs — two earned — on six hits in 1 2/3 innings in his first start since Sept.

1.

Miles Mikolas (2-2), who was sidelined from May 22 until Aug. 20 with a right forearm injury, allowed two runs on four hits in a season-high seven innings in his seventh start back from the injured list.

“I love feeling a lit bit of the pressure there,” Mikolas said.

“Like, ‘Hey, don’t drop the ball. Don’t mess this up.’ We’ve got a really nice streak going here.”

Tyler O’Neill jumpstarted the offense with a two-run homer in the first, his 29th. Paul Goldschmidt added his 27th homer, a two-run shot in the eighth.

The longest winning streak in Cardinals history is 14 in 1935.

The previous time they won 11 consecutive games was in August 2001.

Milwaukee has lost four in a row and six of its last eight. The Brewers have scored just 10 runs combined in the six losses, and have been outscored 17-5 by St. Louis in the first three games of the series.

Milwaukee is 15-45 when scoring three runs or fewer.

“There’s no secret on what offense is, we just haven’t done it over the past four or five days,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. “We’re going to need to score more runs, I think that’s pretty clear. We will, we just didn’t do it again tonight.”

Wainwright is 19-12 with a 2.47 ERA in his career against the Brewers, including 9-4 at Milwaukee.

The 19 victories are his second-most against any team (Pirates, 21).

After going 0-3 with a 4.08 ERA in five April starts, the 40-year-old Wainwright has played a key role in the Cardinals late-season surge. He is 9-1 with a 1.81 ERA in his last 12 starts.

Wainwright allowed two runs in six innings in his last start, but did not get a decision as the team rallied for a 3-2 victory over San Diego.

Cardinals third baseman Nolan Arenado, who drove in two to give him 103 RBIs on the season — along with a team-best 33 homers — was removed in the fifth inning with lower back tightness.

“We’ll evaluate it, there’s always some concern,” Schildt said.

“It felt better at the end of the game than it did when he got taken out, so that’s encouraging.”

Houser is 6-1 with a 2.87 ERA in his last 17 games, including 15 starts. Milwaukee is 17-7 in games started by Hauser.

In his previous start, Hauser allowed five runs — four earned — in four innings without a decision in an 8-5 victory over the Cubs.
