With a win on Sunday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers snapped a three-game losing streak. It was the best kind of win for Tampa Bay, as its roster stayed healthy after its 38-10 drubbing of the Kansas City Chiefs.

The victory came without cornerback Aqib Talib. He was serving the first game of a four-game suspension handed to him by the NFL for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances for taking the attention deficit hyperactivity disorder drug Adderall without a prescription.

The upcoming week is the first that defensive lineman Da'Quan Bowers is eligible to practice in. Bowers started the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list after suffering an Achilles' injury in May. He is eligible to return in Week 8 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Tampa Bay will play a critical game without him in Week 7 when it hosts the New Orleans Saints. A victory will even the Buccaneers' record and further bury the Saints in the NFC standings.
