The Tampa Bay Buccaneers dropped three straight games to NFC East foes, but they enter Week 6 coming off a bye and will be home favorites against the struggling Kansas City Chiefs.
Josh Freeman and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will try to get back on the winning track with a Week 6 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. After opening the season with an impressive home win, the Bucs dropped three straight to fall to 1-3 heading into the bye week.
Greg Schiano's club was in it until the end in all three of those games against NFC East foes, but it could never could hold on for the win. Now out of the NFC East play, the Bucs will be slight home favorites against the visiting Kansas City Chiefs. The Bucs are 4-point favorites in most places, with the over/under set at 40 points.
The Chiefs have been one of the league's worst teams through the first five weeks of the season. They were beat convincingly in three of their four losses, and now enter Week 6 with more turmoil under center. Matt Cassel was knocked out in the second half of last week's loss to the Ravens, and some Chiefs fans cheered the injury. Some also cheered for Brady Quinn, the back-up quarterback who they had been clamoring for in recent weeks while Cassel struggled.
Cassel is questionable for Sunday's 1 p.m. ET game at Raymond James Stadium.
