The New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will both be holding on to slim playoff hopes when they square off this Sunday at the Superdome. The Saints are in especially big trouble, sitting at 5-8 and needing a lot of help to even have a chance. The Bucs currently sit one game ahead of the Saints at 6-7.
These two teams have played once already this season, with New Orleans beating Tampa Bay in a shootout back on Oct. 21. Most experts are expecting a similar outcome when the teams do battle this weekend.
SB Nation's Joel Thorman has New Orleans eking out a 31-28 victory. Six of the eight experts at CBS Sports have picked the Saints, while seven of eight at ESPN have gone in the same direction. ESPN's Accuscore predictor is also picking a Saints victory. And finally, two of the three experts over at Yahoo! Sports are going with New Orleans.
