The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-7) look to halt a three-game losing streak when they hit the road to face the New Orleans Saints (5-8) Sunday at the Mercedez-Benz Superdome.

The Buccaneers are coming off of a 23-21 last-second loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin scored the game-winning touchdown as time expired on a one-yard touchdown pass from rookie quarterback Nick Foles. Josh Freeman threw for 189 yards and two touchdowns while rookie running back Doug Martin rushed for 128 yards and a score.

The Saints are coming off of a 52-27 loss to the New York Giants. Drew Brees threw for 354 yards and a touchdown, but also tossed two interceptions, part of four total turnovers given up by the Saints on the night. Darren Sproles ran for 56 yards and a touchdown while Joe Morgan had 106 yards on just two receptions.
