The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be without safety Mark Barron and linebacker Dekoda Watson today. Keith Tandy will take Barron's place in the starting lineup, while Adam Hayward will replace Watson. Those changes won't help the Bucs' defense against the New Orleans Saints, and Jimmy Graham is likely to take advantage. The Buccaneers could only stop Jimmy Graham with Mark Barron earlier this year, and they will not have that option now.
The New Orleans Saints do not have any significant injuries, which is not going to make things easier for the Buccaneers. The Saints need a win to definitely secure a playoff spot, while Greg Schiano's job security may depend on this game.
The Buccaneers and Saints kick off at 4:25 PM ET.
Buccaneers inactives: S Mark Barron, FB Lonnie Pryor, LB Dekoda Watson, LB Ka'Lial Glaud, DE Scott Solomon, DT Matthew Masifilo and G Carl Nicks.
Saints inactives: QB Ryan Griffin, CB Terrence Fredrick, RB Travaris Cadet, S Isa Abdul-Quddus, LB Keyunta Dawson, WR Nick Toon and DE Tom Johnson
