Both the Buccaneers and Chiefs will look to win their second game of the season when they match up Sunday afternoon.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will look to snap a three-game losing streak when they host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Both teams have one win entering the Week 6 contest. Tampa Bay is 1-3 and is coming off a bye. The Chiefs are 1-4 after losing to Baltimore, 9-6, on Sunday.
