After being limited by a groin injury earlier this season, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is healthy heading into the Chiefs matchup with the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Bowe has 14 100-yard receiving games in his career and could be in line for another against a Tampa Bay pass defense which ranks last in the league in passing yards per game allowed. Through their first four games of the season, the Bucs have allowed 345.3 passing yards per game. That number includes several big individual performances.

New York Giants' receivers Hakeen Nicks and Victor Cruz each had huge days against Tampa Bay earlier this season. Nicks finished with 199 yards, while Cruz had 179 of his own. Cowboys' receiver Miles Austin and Panthers receiver Steve Smith also had 100-yard games against the Buccaneers this season.

Bowe enters Sunday's game 10th in the NFL in receptions and 12th in receiving yards. The Chiefs throw the ball his way a lot, as Bowe is third in the NFL in targets.
