The New Orleans Saints return to the gridiron for the first time in two weeks, on Sunday, when they travel to Tampa, Florida, to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in an NFC South Division match-up.

New Orleans, who was off last week, hasn’t played since October 7, when they defeated the San Diego Chargers, 31-24, is 1-4 on the season, while Tampa Bay, who defeated Kansas City last week, 38-10, is currently 2-3.

The Saints are led by quarterback Drew Brees, who thrown for 1,720 yards and 14 touchdowns on the year, while quarterback Josh Freeman is the focal point of the Buccaneers’ offense, throwing for 1,118 yards and eight touchdowns this year.

The New Orleans offense is averaging 402 yards-per-game, which ranks fourth in the NFL, while the Tampa Bay defense ranks 12th in the league in yards allowing, giving up 387.2 yards a contest.

Kick-off time is scheduled for noon.
