The Bucs are coming off a 38-10 victory over Kansas City in Week 6; it was Tampa Bay's first win since Week 1. With a win over New Orleans, Tampa Bay would improve to 3-3 on the season, though it still would have a lot of ground to make up on the undefeated Atlanta Falcons in the NFC South. The Saints were off in Week 6 and defeated the San Diego Chargers in Week 5 for their first win of 2012.

Tampa Bay enters this weekend ranked No. 27 in total offense and No. 25 in total defense. New Orleans ranks fourth in total offense and 32nd in total defense.
