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.

Tampa Bay may face a Chiefs offense without its starting quarterback. Starter Matt Cassel suffered a concussion during the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the Ravens.

The Buccaneers have lost three games in a row since beating Carolina in Week 1, 16-10. The Bucs have lost by a combined 15 points in their last three games against the Giants (41-34), Cowboys (16-10) and Redskins (24-22).

Despite just one win, the Chiefs enter the Week 6 averaging 402.4 yards per game on offense -- the fourth-best rank in the NFL. Tampa Bay, meanwhile, is third to last with 276 yards per game. Tampa Bay is averaging 419 yards per game on defense, while the Chiefs average 326.8.

Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. on CBS.
