TAMPA BAY: The Buccaneers nearly pulled off a great comeback last Sunday versus the Saints but fell 35-28 after Drew Brees threw for 377 yards and four touchdowns. Josh Freeman was equally spectacular, however, as he completed 24-of-42 passes for 420 yards and three touchdowns. Vincent Jackson had a fantastic day, catching seven passes for 216 yards and one touchdown, while Doug Martin added 85 rushing yards and a score. The loss dropped Tampa Bay’s roster to 2-4 and 4-2 against the spread, while the over is now 4-2 in the Bucs’ first six games.

MINNESOTA: It wasn’t pretty but the Vikings got it done last Sunday versus the Cardinals. Christian Ponder completed just 8-of-17 passes for 58 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions, but Adrian Peterson rushed for 153 yards on 23 carries and added a touchdown in Minnesota’s 21-14 victory. The win lifted the Vikings’ record to 5-2 on the year and allowed Minnesota to keep pace with the Bears in the NFC North. The Vikes were 7-point favorites so they pushed, meaning they ran their ATS record to 3-3-1 on the season.
