Now would be a good time for the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers to get a win and turn their seasons around. Only one will get to do that in Week 6, when they two teams meet in Tampa on Sunday.

The Chiefs and Bucs have only one victory apiece through five weeks. Kansas City will likely be without starting quarterback Matt Cassel, who left last Sunday's 9-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens with a head injury. Brady Quinn would get the start for Cassel.

So far, the second-ranked rushing offense hasn't been enough to lift the Chiefs to much success, though the last time they were on the road against an NFC South team was the one time they won this season, when Jamaal Charles led the Chiefs to a comeback OT win in New Orleans. Charles and the Chiefs' rushing attack will be facing the No. 4-ranked rushing defense in the league in Tampa Bay.

The Bucs are coming off their bye and looking to establish some sort of identity on offense. They are passing for only 185 yards per game (29th in the NFL) and rushing for only 91 (23rd).

Sunday's game kicks off at noon CT and will be televised by CBS.
