The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Arizona Cardinals will come together for a big game at the University of Phoenix Stadium on Sunday in Week 6 of the NFL 2017 regular season. The game has a scheduled start time of 4.05 p.m. ET and can be watched on TV on the Fox network, or online through live stream (details below).
Both of these teams have struggled somewhat over the opening five weeks of the season. The Buccaneers come into Week 6 at the foot of the NFC South, having only managed an even 2-2 record so far.
They will know they have to be more consistent and string a series of wins together if they are to compete at the top with the likes of the Atlanta Falcons and Carolina Panthers, who are on 3-1 and 4-2 respectively.
Meanwhile, the Cardinals are on 2-3, and are only saved from being in the basement of the NFC West thanks to the poor San Francisco 49ers who have yet to win a single game on 0-5.
Despite the Cardinals losing record until now, they are still just about in touch in the NFC West, with the Seattle Seahawks and LA Rams only managing to go 3-2 until now.
The first step for the Cardinals will be to get back to an even .500 record and build from there. But that means they must win today's game.
Earlier this week in the NFL, the Philadelphia Eagles and the Carolina Panthers squared off for Thursday Night Football, with the Eagles eventually coming out on top 28-23 in a tight game of football.
Both teams came into that match up on 4-1, but it was the Eagles who came away improving their record to 5-1, where as the Panthers dropped back to 4-2 following a bruising encounter.
Cam Newton had the chance for a game winning drive, but the Panthers came up just short when the quarterback's fourth down throw bounced on the ground.
With that win the Eagles are emerging as real contenders for the NFC. They are being led admirably by Carson Wentz, who threw three more touchdowns on Thursday night. Oppositely, Cam Newton threw three interceptions, which proved costly for Carolina.
Things had been looking good for the Panthers, as they took a 10-3 lead in the first half, with Wentz not able to get going at all for the Eagles.
However, when Luke Kuechly left late in the second quarter following a concussion, the game was turned on its head, and suddenly Wentz was able to find a lot more time on the ball and was able to drive the Eagles into scoring position after scoring position.
