The Tampa Bay Buccaneers hope to get back on the winning track against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. How do both teams look entering the game?
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-3) look to earn their second win of the season against the Kansas City Chiefs (1-4) on Sunday. The overall series between these two teams is tied at 5 games a piece. The Buccaneers have won the last three games against the Chiefs including a 30-27 win on Nov. 2, 2008.
The Buccaneers enter Sunday's game on a three-game losing streak, having lost all three games against NFC East opponents, which culminated in a 24-22 loss to the Washington Redskins on Sept. 30. In that game, quarterback Josh Freeman completed 24-of-39 passes for 299 yards, one touchdown and an interception. However, both running backs Doug Martin and LeGarrret Blount were held to just 50 rushing yards combined on 14 total carries.
The Chiefs enter Sunday's game having lost two games in a row, including Sunday's 9-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. In that game, quarterback Matt Cassel was knocked out of the game in the fourth quarter. Backup quarterback Brady Quinn finished the game for the Chiefs, completing all three of his passes for 32 yards. Running back Jamaal Charles ran the ball 30 times for 140 yards and the Chiefs as a whole ran for 214 yards, but were kept out of the end zone by the Ravens defense.
