Bucs-Saints predictions

The Bucs will be missing a key defensive piece with the suspension of Kwon Alexander, so look for Drew Brees and the Saints offense to have a bit more success than they had in the loss to Tampa Bay in Week 2. But the Bucs offense is starting to click more regularly, and the Saints defense is awful. Won't be a blowout, but Bucs stay alive in NFC playoff race. Bucs, 27-24.

Tom Jones

Times Sports Columnist

The Bucs are 6-6 in the middle of the playoff hunt. The Saints are done. They put a lot into (trying to beat) the Panthers last week. This turnaround will be tough. The Bucs will get over .500. Bucs, 28-17.

Pete Prisco

CBS Sports

The Bucs beat the Saints in New Orleans, and it won't be easy for the Saints to recover from nearly knocking off the Panthers. Especially with the Bucs looking at a potential playoff berth. Bucs, 30-24.
