Hopeful, rebuilding teams square off in Tampa and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:

Why this game is intriguing: There are no playoff implications to be found in this one. These young, rebuilding programs under first-year coaches have both taken turns showing promise this year, only to find the stage too big and bright. Both upstarts would be well-served in looking toward 2013 with player development. Finishing the year right, though, would emphasize things are headed in the right direction. And for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, it would also rid their mouths of the taste of a four-game losing streak under coach Greg Schiano.
