Tampa Bay (2-4) at Minnesota (5-2)
When: 7:20 p.m. today.
TV: NFL Network.
Line: Vikings -6.5 (42).
The skinny: Don't let the records fool you. The Bucs have been in every game they've lost this year, and a highly controversial call kept them from overtime against the Saints last week. The Vikings beat the Cards despite an odd statistical game from quarterback Christian Ponder last week in which he threw for 58 yards and two interceptions. Minnesota will need to pass the ball better than that against the Bucs, though. It would be hard not to, but Josh Freeman and Tampa will be right there at the end again.
MattE's pick: Bucs 27, Vikings 24.
