Will the bye week help get Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers back on track?
The Bucs took a two-game losing streak into their Week 13 bye and will look to snap the skid Sunday when they take on the Minnesota Vikings, who have won two straight, at Raymond James Stadium.
Although Brady and the Buccaneers offense haven't looked great in recent weeks, their last two losses came against tough opponents in the Los Angeles Rams (9-3) and Kansas City Chiefs (11-1). This time, they'll face a Minnesota defense that ranks near the bottom of the pack in total points allowed and points allowed per game.
Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins has found his rhythm as of late, throwing for at least 300 yards and three touchdowns in each of his last three games. It certainly helps that he has Offensive Rookie of the Year candidate Justin Jefferson as a weapon, plus the always-dangerous Adam Thielen.
And then there's star running back Dalvin Cook, who has 1,250 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns through 11 games played this season. Moral of the story: the usually-stout Bucs defense will have its hands full.
Will Brady and the Bucs put an end to the Vikings' hot streak, or will Cousins and Co. continue Tampa's downward spiral?
