Buccaneers vs Seahawks Live:Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks have made a habit of winning close games this season. They are 5-1 in games decided by seven points or less. The Seahawks wouldn’t mind winning a blowout game when they face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday (1:05 p.m. PT/4:05 p.m. ET, FOX, DIrecTV) in a Week 9 game.
The Buccaneers’ fortunes are tied to the performance of quarterback Jameis Winston. Their record (2-5) reveals that Winston has produced far more “down” than “up” performances in 2019. Winston threw a combined seven interceptions in his past two games, but losses. Winston has thrown 12 interceptions this season, tied for the league lead (Baker Mayfield).
Russell Wilson looks to keep the Seahawks in the NFC West race and further burnish his MVP credentials Sunday when Seattle hosts the Buccaneers.

What to Know
Seattle will be playing at home against Tampa Bay at 4:05 p.m. ET on Sunday. Seattle will be seeking to avenge the 14-5 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played Nov. 27 of 2016.
The Seahawks were able to grind out a solid win over Atlanta last week, winning 27-20. The team accrued the bulk of their points in the first half (24) and coasted on those for the victory.
Meanwhile, Tampa Bay didn’t finish too far behind, but the squad still lost 27-23 to Tennessee. Tampa Bay’s loss came about despite a quality game from WR Mike Evans, who caught 11 passes for 198 yards and two TDs. QB Jameis Winston’s longest connection was to Evans for 46 yards in the second quarter. Evans has never finished with more yards this season.
Seattle is the favorite in this one, with an expected 4.5-point margin of victory. They may be expected to win, but bettors beware: they are only 1-5 against the spread when favored.
Seattle’s victory lifted them to 6-2 while Tampa Bay’s defeat dropped them down to 2-5. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Seattle enters the contest with only one interception, good for best in the NFL. On the other end of the spectrum, Tampa Bay are stumbling into the game with the third most interceptions in the league, having thrown 12 on the season. Their sloppiness could come back to bite them.
