Saints vs. Buccaneers: Game time, TV schedule, odds and more

Christian Petersen

The New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers go head-to-head on Sunday in Week 7 of NFL action.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the New Orleans Saints on Sunday with both teams looking to gain some momentum after sluggish starts to the season. Tampa Bay is coming off a 38-10 win against the Kansas City Chiefs last week that snapped a three-game losing streak.

New Orleans logged its first win of the season against the San Diego Chargers two weeks ago. The Saints had a bye last week. In the win over the Chargers, Drew Brees set the record for most consecutive games with a touchdown pass (48), breaking Johnny Unitas's mark set in 1960.

Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman had his first game without throwing an interception. For the season, Freeman has just eight touchdown passes and four interceptions.

Both teams have a chance to put up big numbers in the passing game, since both defenses rank toward the bottom of the league in defending the pass.

Game Date/Time: Sunday, Oct. 21, 1 p.m. ET

Location: Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis, Ind.

TV: FOX

Odds: New Orleans is a 3-point favorite against the Bucs.
