The Bucs have lost two in a row and eight of their last 10, but they’re hoping to snag one in KC tonight before heading home and supposedly getting rookie stud Ke’Bryan Hayes back in the lineup, which could hopefully spark some optimism as the season rolls into its middle third. Wil Crowe is looking for his first win of the season, while the Bucs will try to rough up Brady Singer, who’s just 2-4 on the year.

Let’s go Bucs!
