    Here’s your look around the country at what experts are saying about the Week 10 Match up between the Chargers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers:

    ESPN NFL Experts: Only three of the twelve NFL experts picked the Chargers to win over the Bucs.

    NBC’s ProFootball Talk: Mark Florio chose Tampa Bay to beat the Chargers 27-21. Michael David Smith also said the Bucs were going to win, 16-14.

    Yahoo! Sports: Yahoo! experts went three for three picking Vincent Jackson and the Buccaneers to beat San Diego.

    NFL Network’s Analyst Elliot Harrison: Tampa Bay 28, Chargers 23.

    Amanda’s Take: All week the name around the Chargers’ has been Vincent Jackson. The ex-Charger will definitely be fighting to play at his best against his old team. But the name that has somewhat flown under the radar is Doug Martin. The rookie running back out of Boise State has 794 yards on the season with seven touchdowns. If the Chargers want to take this game they have to figure out a way to defend in the air and on the ground. They are much healthier and are coming off a long week so if there was any week the Chargers were ready for the challenge this would be the week.

    Amanda’s Pick: Chargers 16 Tampa Bay 13
