NFC South: Tom Brady, Patrick Mahomes to battle Sunday night

FLOWERY BRANCH -- The old guard is set to meet the new gunslinger when Tom Brady and the Buccaneers (2-1) host Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs (2-1) at 8:20 p.m. Sunday at Raymond James stadium.

The Bucs, the favorites in the NFC South, are coming off a loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. The Bucs went to Miami to practice this week to dodge Hurricane Ian.

The Saints (1-2) will host the Minnesota Vikings (2-1) at 9:30 a.m. ET in London. The Saints are coming of a 22-14 loss, and quarterback Jameis Winston’s status is in question. If he can’t go, the Saints can hand the ball over to Andy Dalton.

The Panthers (1-2) will host the Cardinals (1-2) at 4:05 p.m. at Bank of America Stadium. Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey is battling a quad injury.
