Rams vs. Buccaneers: Game time, TV schedule, injury updates and more

The Bucs are going through a rough stretch, but they'll have an opportunity to put an end to it against the Rams.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will try to snap a four-game losing skid when they face the St. Louis Rams on Sunday afternoon. That losing streak dropped their record to 6-8 and also eliminated them from playoff contention. At 6-7-1, the Rams are not in much better shape, but they do have a slim shot at making the postseason.

The Bucs lost three of their last four games by eight points or fewer, but they're coming off a 41-0 blowout loss to New Orleans. The Rams are coming off a 36-22 loss to Minnesota; prior to that, they'd won three games in a row.

On the injury front, both teams are in relatively good shape. Bucs defensive end Michael Bennett and Rams running back Steven Jackson are two notables who are banged up, but both are expected to be able to play.

Game time: 1 p.m. ET

TV: FOX

Odds: Tampa Bay is favored by three points.
