Throughout the 2022 season, NFL Network analysts will provide one bold prediction heading into each week's slate of games (see the full Week 14 schedule).

More importantly, the win keeps the Buccaneers comfortably atop the lackluster NFC South, while dealing a painful blow to the Niners' NFC West title pursuit.
