The New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will wrap up this weekend’s NFL action with a Thursday Night Football matchup at Raymond James Stadium. The first matchup between these two NFC squads was a dud but this one could live up to the hype. The game will kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on NBC.
The Buccaneers are looking to extend their winning-streak to four games to maintain their lead in the division. Tom Brady is about to add Antonio Brown to one of the most talented receiving corps in the NFL and has two quality running backs in his backfield. Tampa Bay’s elite defensive line will look to stuff Alvin Kamara, who has more all-purpose yardage than any player in the NFL. Drew Brees hopes to get a productive night from Michael Thomas, who hasn’t played since posting a modest stat line against the Buccaneers in Week 1. The Saints have managed to rattle off four straight wins since Week 3 with a severely depleted receiving corps. Pulling of a fifth straight win on the road will be tough against an opponents with so much momentum and an undefeated record at home.
If you can’t watch this game on TV, you have the option to stream the matchup on the NBC Sports Live. If you don’t have cable, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream Sunday Night Football this week.
The game is often a little bit delayed on live streams, but usually it’s only between 30 and 60 seconds behind the TV broadcast. That can impact you if you’re on Twitter during the game, but otherwise it’s an easy option.
The Buccaneers are 5.5-point favorites and the point total is installed at 52. Tampa Bay is -235 on the moneyline while New Orleans is +200.
