The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up almost $7,100 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. The model enters Week 14 of the 2021 season on an incredible 131-94 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.
The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is WAY UP!
The model has considered the Bucs' high-powered offense led by Tom Brady (3,403 yards, 30 TDs). The unit had contributions from running back Leonard Fournette and tight end Rob Gronkowski in last week's 38-31 win against the Colts. Fournette had 131 total yards and four TDs, while Gronkowski had 123 receiving yards. Brady is 9-0 in his career against the Falcons, who will also have to stop elite wide receivers Chris Godwin (806 yards) and Mike Evans (10 TDs).
The model also has taken into account the ability of veteran Atlanta QB Matt Ryan (2,617 yards, 16 TDs) and what he could do to a decimated Bucs secondary. Carson Wentz threw for 306 yards and three TDs last week against the Buccaneers and Tampa Bay was down by 10 at halftime. Running back Cordarrelle Patterson is a dangerous weapon and had 135 total yards and two TDs in a 21-14 win against Jacksonville last week. Rookie tight end Kyle Pitts (661 yards) also could do plenty of damage.
