When Dirk Koetter took over the head coaching job at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the former Arizona State coach discussed about changing the culture within the franchise’s squad. So far it has a been a tough of a challenge for the new head coach to really get that getting done this regular season as the Bucs are 2-3 coming off of their bye week.
The Buccaneers last played at Carolina Panthers in the Week 4 on of the season and managed to the defeat the latter team 20-17. This game with the San Francisco 49ers will be a tough test to determine how much the organization has changed within the Bucs.
San Francisco 49ers team are coming off a massive 45-16 defeat last weekend at the hands of the Buffalo Bills. The inability to conclude a game cost the Niners, as they are only trailed 24-16 with 14:48 time remaining on the clock in the fourth period before Bills blew the contest open. The 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick made his first start of the 2016 NFL regular season, and was very uneven throwing the ball, posting just 13 of 29 passes for 167 yards and a touchdown.
Carlos Hyde was ruled out on Friday due to a shoulder injury. The SF 49ers promoted DuJuan Harris off of the practice squad to make sure the franchise had three healthy running backs on the gameday. Harris joins Shaun Draughn and Mike Davis as 49ers’ backs for Week 7 action.
