The sputtering Kansas CIty Chiefs will look to hold off a well-rested Tampa Bay Buccaneers squad when the two teams square off on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.

The Chiefs (1-4) will be without quarterback Matt Cassel, who suffered a concussion in the team's Week 5 game against the Baltimore Ravens. Brady Quinn will get the start under center, which means the Chiefs will likely lean on running back Jamal Charles to supply much of the offense. Charles rushed 30 times for 140 yards against Baltimore.

Tampa Bay (1-3) is coming off of a bye week. The Buccaneers secondary has been poor this season, allowing a league-worst 345.3 passing yards per game, but it might get a bit of a break this week with Quinn at quarterback for the Chiefs. The Bucs running game has struggled in 2012, as rookie running back Doug Martin has averaged just 3.5 yards per carry. LeGarrete Blount could see increased touches as a result.

Game Date/Time: Sunday, October 14; noon CT
