This week, the New Orleans Saints are on the road and will face one of their NFC South division rivals, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the 2nd time this season.

The last time that these two teams faced off was in Week 4 when the Saints lost 26-9 at home in Caesars Superdome. This will be the 63rd time that these two franchises will face one another in the regular season. The Saints currently hold a 39-24 record against the Bucs.

New Orleans will head into this game with a 7-8 record and in 3rd place in NFC South after a losing to the Los Angeles Rams on TNF. They will need to defeat Tampa Bay on Sunday and the Atlanta Falcons next week as well as have the Bucs to lose to the Carolina Panthers next week in order to win the division and get into the playoffs.

Kickoff is at 12 noon and the game will be broadcast on FOX with Kevin Burkhardt (play-by-play), Greg Olsen (color analyst), Erin Andrews and Tom Rinaldi (sideline)
