The Bucs have a chance to move to 4-1 and take the division lead today, as the New Orleans Saints look like they're losing to the Carolina Panthers today. Will the Bucs be able to beat a 49er team they dominated last year, or will they fail to take advantage of a New Orleans stumble?
Can the Bucs O-line and Legarrette Blount continue their strong start to the season against a dominant front seven? And can Josh Freeman finally look more like the quarterback he was last year? This should be an interesting matchup between two 3-1 teams, but it could also be a defensive slugfest as both offenses have struggled throughout the beginning of the season.
