The Sunday Night Football matchup is a big one between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints.

Tom Brady has the Bucs rolling coming in the contest. Tampa Bay has won three in a row and sits atop the NFC South at 6-2. Adding to the suspense is the fact that troubled receiver Antonio Brown will make his debut for the Bucs, joining Mike Evans and Chris Godwin in a stacked Bucs offense.

Drew Brees and the Saints are looking for their fifth-consecutive victory. New Orleans looked sluggish over its first three games, but has turned it around. The last three Saints wins have come by exactly three points. New Orleans’ offense is going to get a huge boost as well with the return of All-Pro receiver Michael Thomas.

The Saints won the first meeting between the two teams, which came in Week 1.

The betting line for this one has Tampa Bay favored by 4.5 points.

Who do you like to win tonight?
