The Thursday night spotlight shines on Minneapolis this week as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Minnesota Vikings at the Metrodome.
The Bucs squandered a 21-7 lead at home in a 35-28 loss to the Saints this past Sunday.
Tampa Bay is now 2-and-4 on the season, including 0-and-2 on the road.
The Bucs have dropped nine straight on the road overall but have won their last five meetings against Minnesota.
The Vikings are 5-and-2 after a 21-14 win over Arizona. Christian Ponder threw for just 58 yards and was picked off twice, but Adrian Peterson picked up the slack with 153 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Minnesota is 4-and-0 at home this season.
